Accommodation for 1 over Christmas and New Year

I am finding it extremely difficult finding a private room in a hostel over the Christmas period.

Arrive into Sydney 22nd Dec until 5th Jan. Wanting to be close to Bondi but realise I cannot be too fussy. I have tried hostel websites but not wanting to share room with others. Have also tried airbnb but really expensive in Bondi area.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I'd say that a great majority of locations close to the beaches or the CBD have booked out, and you've left your run a little too late.

Perhaps locations just outside of the city, such as North Sydney, Cremorne, and inner city such as Broadway and Glebe may have availability.

Although its predominantly for hotel rooms, Wotif does list backpackers, hostels and other economical lodgings.

Traditionally backpackers congregate on Bondi Beach on Christmas Day.

Have a look at Coogee Beach too. There are a few Hostels there and you might be lucky if they haven't been booked out yet.

Ahhh was looking into Coogee! Thanks. Think I will congregate with the rest onto Bondi too!

Does public transport work over xmas? If I need to get from Coogee to Bondi how much in a taxi?

Thanks guys!

You can just take the scenic walk to Bondi...

But taxi about $15 - $20 one way
