          We are a family of four and have accommodation reserved (private room) for a day next month. The day we check out, we leave by train to Sydney at 7 pm, and plan to spend the day sightseeing around the CBD area. I read about the luggage room in the hostel - is it OK to leave our luggage there the day we check out? Thanks, TeenzDad

          I left my bags in the luggage room a few months back when we arrived early. It was crowded but we didn't have any problems finding enough room. I wouldn't worry about it too much.
