Sydney Accommodation Darling Harbour‘ sounds like a personals ad, but it actually exists – if not right at Darling Harbour, at least within an easy walk. The obvious way to stay in Sydney long enough to see this tourism and entertainment centre, and not spend very much money is to stay at a hostel. Fortunately there are many of these informal and affordable answers to cheap travel near the center of this exciting city.

Hostels in the original sense meant safe places to stay where backpackers could find at least a running water spigot and a place to unroll a sleeping bag. Today, however, hostels usually offer many more amenities, and sometimes only the informal atmosphere will let a traveler know that it is not a hotel.

Among the best known downtown hostels is ‘Wake Up! Sydney Central’, a swinger’s paradise with a cafe, an internationally known night spot named the SideBar, dormitories and even private rooms, game rooms, parking lots, 24 hour staff, and more. This hostel is very close to Darling Harbour, rents bed starting at $28 a night (US), and is mainly designed to delight teens and wild, restless young adults. Other similar, centrally located, and slightly cheaper hostels are the Maze Backpackers and Base Sydney.

For a quieter stay, the Haven Inn is even more like a hotel, with the low prices of a hostel but the ambiance of a traditional, casual boarding house. Its large bathrooms rate high with economy minded travelers, and the beds are said to be comfortable. One of its charms is its faintly bohemian neighborhood, which makes the short walk to the Harbour fun.

For children, or those who are neither young nor wild, there is the Woolbrokers at Darling Harbour, either a casual hotel or a sedate hostel. You can get a comfortable bed in a clean rooms with a bath very close by. The shared facilities should not be a bother, since there are 19 bathrooms for 27 beds. The Woolbrokers advertises group rates and other special discounts.

A room in a large Sydney hotel starts at around $170 per night, but many of these inns claim to have cheap rates. It will surely pay to call them on these promises, and find out just how affordable they can make your stay.

Since you won’t be in your bed much anyway, you might as well save as much as possible. There is so much to see just in Darling Harbour that you will want to get out early. Between harbour cruises, carnival rides, museums, incredible shops, great restaurants, and just following the boardwalk around the inlet, you will scarcely have time to get home before it is time to go out again. By night, the harbour has an amazing view of the city skyline, all sorts of clubs and shows, the casino, and the views of the water by moonlight to keep you out late.

This tourist mecca is easy to get to from anywhere in the city, by monorail, light rail, bus, taxi, or water taxi. However, by exploiting ‘Cheap Sydney accommodation darling harbour’, you can stay close enough to not miss a thing.
