I am travelling solo this winter to Oz and wondering whether or not to stay in a hostel?
I am 36 years old and first time staying in hostels in Sydney. I'm worried about it filled with young 18 year olds partying all night long (although I like a night out I also like to be able to sleep). Also I am finding it hard to find solo rooms and why do you have to pay for the entire 3 dorm rooms? Are there areas I should avoid? Areas I should stay for my age group? Sorry but I am a novice here.
How would I know if a hostel is clean and free from bed bugs etc?
I appreciate any advice and tips!
