    I've been to Sydney backpackers. If you love going out all night. Then it is your place to go to. If not don't go. The kitchen is very small, you need to bring plate, cup enz. It's not clean. And the toilets are very dirty....More

    Central Business District
    The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
    energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
    buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
    shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
    frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
    dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
    the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
    reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
