Hostel Review: Sydney Central Backpackers, Sydney, Australia

After our not-so-successful stay at Hump Backpackers, we decided to give somewhere else a try for our last week in Sydney, so after scouring a few hostel comparison sites, we settled upon the Sydney Central Backpackers hostel, in a great location just round the corner from the hustle and bustle of Kings Cross’ main strip, … More Hostel Review: Sydney Central Backpackers, Sydney, Australia

Hostel Review: Hump Backpackers, Sydney, Australia

Let’s start this hostel review with the fact that these guys have called their hostel Hump Backpackers? Can we talk about about that please? By the look of their logo I’m guessing they’re trying to reference a humpback(packing) whale, but even so, I don’t really get it, although seeing as they are located in the … More Hostel Review: Hump Backpackers, Sydney, Australia

Apple Store Challenge: Sydney, Australia

This place was an absolute god-send to us during our time in Sydney…a gorgeous, glass fronted building, with beautiful gadgets everywhere. And best of all? It’s pretty much the only place in the city that you can get completely free (and unlimited) use of the Internet, either on all the macs around the store or … More Apple Store Challenge: Sydney, Australia

Hostel Review: Base Backpackers, Sydney

After the luxury and ease of Wake Up, we were a little aprehensive about our move to the (slightly cheaper) Base Backpackers Hostel, about 15 minutes walk away on Kent Street. And as much as I’d like to say we were proved wrong…I really can’t. I mean, Base is nice enough, the people are friendly, … More Hostel Review: Base Backpackers, Sydney
