Sydney Airport Review

by web-administrator (February, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review from Brooke) I'm in Sydney international terminal 1 at the moment and would like to clarify a few things: - there is no longer a sponsor nor a 2 hour limit on the free WiFi (at least not in Terminal 1, anyway). You may need to sign into the free WiFi again from time to time, but it's a decent enough speed for web browsing and I haven't been kicked off in about the 5 hours that I've been connected. The same WiFi network in domestic terminal 2 seemed a little slow though. The SSID (WiFi name) in both terminals is '-Free SYD-' - There are now phone charging stations in the eatery near Check-in counters B, and another one near Check-in counter F. I tested them on my Google Nexus 5 (micro USB port) and they all worked and did not look damaged. The charging stations are the pigeon hole type, where you sit nearby and leave your p continued >>

(GUEST) It's unbelievable and embarrassing for Australia that there is a charge to transfer between the domestic and international terminals.

Sydney Airport

Pros: -
Cons: -


(email submission from Quentin and Melinda) We just spend a night in Sydney airport, and after finding the spot easily thanks to your website, (arrivals level, near the access to the trains), we put our sleeping bags and mattresses on the ground for a few hours sleep. It is quite impossible to sleep on the chairs, and there are fresh 'winds'. We have been awaken by nice security agents around midnight to show our passports, and could go back to sleep again. There is an easy access to toilets, drinking water, power, wi-fi, and even hot showers for the morning! (check that the door is really closed on the men side...). A quite good night, compare to what we expected in an airport!

Review for Sydney Airport

by web-administrator (March, 2014)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(email submission) I spent the night at Sydney Airport recently. Before that I read a lot of the reviews that are up on your website. After reading them I was quite worried about staying there to say the least. So the first good news for everyone who is thinking about spending the night. Its not as bad as some of the reviews make it seem! It is true though, that you get kind of locked in between two gates. But its not too bad. There are toilets (that are being renovated right now March 2014), sockets, free wifi and two machines selling snacks and drinks. I came to the airport around 8pm on Saturday. My flight was scheduled for 6 a.m. the next morning. First I was looking for the designated area where you can spend the night to save my seat. It is located as described in other reviews. Between the international terminal and where you continued >>

Not the best place

by diegosoria (December, 2013)


Reason for Stay: Early flight departure
Where: Landside
Pros: Somehow I could stay there overnight, it was the objective.
Cons: Small crowded main lobby. Insifficient benches. Cold.


At the very beginning I was sleeping at the domestic terminal (I had an early flight departure to Melbourne next day) but it closes at midnight so I went to the international terminal (by bus). When I arrived to the international terminal, there were no available benches so I slept on the floor. There are just a few benches and there is no carpet, there is a small area with rubber floor close to the restrooms. It is not a comfortable place to rest at all, it is cold and crowded. There is a quiet hall in front of the lifts, I slept there on the floor. The security staff allow you to be there just if you show your passport, if you are taking a domestic flight as me, don't forget to carry it with you. The cleaning staff is friendly, they just do their job.
