          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

          Is it really necessary to fill in our personal details on the Tipi app before arriving at the hostel?

          No. When you enter the accomodation ground floor there are a number of tablets you can do to put your details i. then walk to reception and pay and get key card for door

          I used to work there as the activities role, basically using tipi ideally is the best way for you guys to see what's going on at the hostel, unfortunately it takes ages to sign up and no one reads the messages through tipi
