Hostels with Private Rooms in Sydney, Australia

Hostels with Private Rooms in Sydney, Australia Sydney, Australia
Sydney, capital of New South Wales and one of Australia’s largest cities, is best known for its harbor front Sydney Opera House, with a distinctive sail-like design. Massive Darling Harbor and the smaller Circular Quay port are hubs of waterside life, with the arched Harbor Bridge and esteemed Royal Botanic Garden nearby. Defined just as much by its rugged Pacific coastline as its exquisite harbor, Sydney relies on its coastal setting to replenish its reserves of charm. On the coast, Australia ends abruptly in sheer walls of sandstone punctuated by arcs of golden sand. Sydney Tower's outdoor platform, the Skywalk, offers 360-degree views of the city and suburbs. National parks ring the city and penetrate right into its heart. Large chunks of harbor are still bush-fringed, while parks cut their way through skyscrapers and suburbs. Consequently, native critters turn up in the most surprising places. In Sydney, there’s always a new restaurant to try, undercover bar to hunt down, hip band to check out, sports team to shout at, show to see or crazy party to attend. Sydney is an exciting place where anything goes and everything usually does, and these hostels with private rooms provide an excellent base for exploring the area.
