Hi Katherine!

Sydney has an abundance of accommodation - from quality budget hostels right through to luxury 5 star hotels. Many areas of the city are popular with visitors, with accommodation close to the water such as Darling Harbour or Circular Quay probably the more popular locations. However, prices can sometimes reflect this!

Without knowing your budget and personal preferences, it is a little difficult to make a suitable recommendation for you.

If you are looking for a more budget style accommodation, you could look at areas such as Central or Broadway.. There are some great budget and backpacker hostel options in these areas, as it is reasonably close to Sydney Uni & UTS. These areas are also reasonably close (within easy walking distance) to attractions such as Chinatown and Darling Harbour.

I can provide you with links to check various accommodation rates and availability:-


In a couple of days, you can also check Last Minute Hotel Deals (available up to 28 Days in advance which can give you some great savings):

Other than that, I am happy to answer any questions and assist in finding something suitable for you (at no obligation - yes, I am a travel agent, but I am also happy to help people out even if I receive no finanancial benefit).

Anyhow, I hope this helps you a little bit... Any other questions, do not hesitate to ask!

Hi thought to add my bit here - and give you some links to perhaps look at to help you in finding some cheap and deent accommodations, I'm not from Sydney but from Melbourne so a little out of my depth for Sydney accomodations - if you are after Melbourne Accom ten I am more than happy to help you in that area again depending on your budget etc - try this website for some great accomodation and flight deals
and also and and and and and probably can find some more for you if I havea quick look around and hopefully this should also help you - best wishes and enjoy your stay here in Oz

my cousin stayed in YHA in Sydney and was very good.
