    As title really. Myself and a couple of friends are all booked up to spend 6 weeks (the majority of this in NZ) in all these places and are looking for places to stay! Never stayed in a hostel before but the budget is calling (read: screaming) for it ;)

    I know there's a lot of travellers in these forums, just posting this on the off-chance that someone stayed in a hostel somewhere and would recommend it (or not!). :)

    If anyone has any general experience of hostels please do post what it's like. We're all graduates so have experienced Uni halls -- which is kinda what i'm guessing it would be like. Am i right?

    You won't really need to stay in hostels in Bangkok, accomodation is cheap enough anyway. In Oz and NZ I wouldn't recommend booking anywhere in advance, (you never know if you'll actually be there on the dates you book for). Basically, there are always spaces available in any of the major locations, all of a pretty similar standard so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

    Lots of hostels in the Kings Cross area of Sydney.

    ...and the added convenience of hundreds of hookers.

    Cheapest place though, (for accomodation, not hookers).
