    Surviving 790 on George Street

    Right off the bat and with an elbow to 790 on George streets face, this seriously can't be the second best hostel in all of Sydney?!

    Given that it's right inside the CBD area in Haymarket, it may sound appealing to simply stumble out of bed right into traffic and head out for some sightseeing.

    The interior of the building however, showcases a whole series of sorry looking art work, presumably from previous backpackers to save some money, that was never spent on anything in this hostel. Most horrific of all however, is the descend downstairs into an appalling prison cafeteria, which gives you the heebie-jeebies and a nosefull of stagnant and reeking junk food on the way down.

    By all means, if you'd rather save a pretty penny on accommodation and splash out on some first rate coffee, why not?

    Yet mouldy shower curtains, a lack of free wifi and a prison cafeteria may not be for everyone.
    Check out the Wakeup! Sydney instead and be sure to have a great stay in Australia's most populous city right from the beginning.

    Filthy rooms and roommates but cool staff members. unpacked condoms in the shower. dead insects in the glasses of the upper lights. english party bangers holding me up all night with shouting, switching the lights on and off and having sex in the next bed. but staff members were cool friendly and helped you. but they should rather clean the rooms a bit more. it stank like hell...

    What I love above everything else in Newtown is not only its street art, but also its unique character and charm, which appears to be entirely absent in Sydney CBD. You might just call it Sydney's Greenwich village or untainted soil of artistic freedom, where ideas and creativity can actually flourish. The streets are lined with a bazillion coffee …
