I'm staying at Bounce for the first 5 nights and then will see what happens after that. I'm 27 and live near Manchester. Have you looked at any hostels yet??

Oh where abouts is bounce in Sydney? I did look up a few places but I couldn't book anywhere as I only have a lazer card and they won't accept lazer cards do I'm hoping to book on Sunday night using my cousins card :) x

It's central Sydney in a place called Surry Hills, looks really nice. I have heard that Base is also good but not sure where that is.

I booked it through hostel bookers as they came out the cheapest. What kind of work have you applied for? I have registered with a few agencies and made appointments with them as soon as I arrive so fingers crossed they find me work. From what the agencies have told me they won't employ before you arrive.
