Hi everyone really need some help asap as i am trying to book accomodation for around 6 days over new years in Sydney. I know it's late but i have only just decided to go to Oz for a month in December.
Ive tried the yha.com website but everywhere seems booked up.
If you have any suggestions or reccomendations it would be much appreciated
You could try World Square Hostel not too sure what its like as I haven't stayed there before but fingers crossed its decent as Ive booked to stay there over new years
Generally speaking, the only properties still available at this point are those which require a minimum stay of 10 days, and/or are inconveniently located, and/or are outrageously expensive. Looking at the Sydney accommodation section here on travellerspoint, I see 3 properties available over new years when I search for 6 nights starting on the 28th, and that increases to 9 properties if I make it for 10 nights. Might be that one of them could be an option for you.
Otherwise, keep searching daily; rooms are cancelled all the time, so you might be lucky and come across one.
I'm faced with the same problem, but i think I may find somewhere to stay outside of sydney on the coast or something near a trainstation, or drive into sydney for xmas day and new years eve.
Same here! I am strugling to find Somewhere!
On the hostelbookers website there is availability from 29th December (minimum stay is 7 nights) at the hostel 790 on George which is right next to Sydney central yha. 6 bed dorm is coming out at around £260 which isn't too bad for new years. Fingers crossed you can find somewhere!
Life saver - Just booked that place - that will do me fine..
Thanks again. Might look for somewhere in Bondi now for over X-mas
I've also booked in for 790 i found it through another site and booked this moring after my last message!!
So we will be there at the same time! Im there from 27th December for 7 nights i think!
Woo hoo - what are your plans for the big night?
Sweet!! think we owe Kate a beer haha. Was really struggling.
Well i think i might stay in Bondi over Christmas then im getting to 790 on the 29th.
Ive no real plans for New Years but i definitely want to be around the arbour for Midnight. A friend of mine told me about a Boat party thats supposed to be really good.
Have you got any plans ? Are you travelling alone ?
Hey I'm travelling alone! I have family that live over there as well, in Sydney!
I am planning on Bondi for Christmas, going to have a look now for hostels! I want to do the Xmas beach party!
Oh boat party, you will have to find out for us!
Not sure at what point i'l be seeing the family, they don't actually know im coming its a secret, well three of them do, its a surprise for everyone else.
I'm landing in OZ in hopefully at the end of October!
I'l pm you my e-mail details.
