My boyfriend and I (late 20's) are starting our 4 week Australia trip with a couple nights in Sydney (next January).
We have never stayed in a hostel before but the hotel prices in Sydney seem to be really expensive so I think we might dare to give it a shot.
Don't mind paying extra since we'd definitely want a private room and a private bathroom, but since I don't know the city well at all, I'm struggling to make a decision. I don't mind a bit of partying, but would probably stay away from a place specifically known for being a party hostel, and would really like something clean.
We want to be in a good location to check out the Opera House, etc, but also would really like to be able to see some of the nicer beaches. Since we only have 2 days there, handy transit would be nice to get to these sites, and also a convenient way to/from the airport is a bonus!
These three are spots that were sounding pretty good, so if anyone has feedback on any of these that would be great (or other choices too!)
-YHA Sydney Harbour - The Rocks (this one is pretty pricy though, about $170 per night but if it's definitely worth it we'd splurge).
-Wake Up! (would this be our most central choice to get around to everything we want to see?)
-Funk House (or is this area pretty bad?)
Thanks for your help!!
