When you are visiting Sydney as a tourist, choosing the right place to stay will always be an important decision to make. Not only will it affect the quality of your stay, but it will also determine how much the whole trip costs you. The good thing is that Sydney has a lot to offer in terms of accommodation options, so finding an ideal hotel or motel should not be very difficult. Some of the options you can explore include:

Hotels for backpackers: Cheap does not mean low quality

If you are interested in the cheapest accommodation available, living in a facility that is meant for backpackers is the way to go. There are quite a number of these in Sydney, and though they are cheap, they come with high descent which means that you do end up getting good value for money. Some of the specific facilities you can stay in include:

This is a hostel that charges around $36 AUD per night. It is located on George Street, and has just enough amenities for someone who does not need too many frills in their accommodation.
