    Pros: few

    Cons: small drafty noisy sleeping corner

    As previously mentioned the airport is closed from 23.00 to 3.00. Anybody found is corralled into a way to small area near the train departure elevator. About 6 cushioned chairs and a rack of benches with armrests. The section is only partly carpeted where one could spread out with a sleeping bag. Security checks tickets and passports immediately after 11 pm. The corral is near the service entry used noisily all night. Piped music starts at 4. Basically sleepers are unwelcome barely tolerated. One star if one is generous.

    Possibly the worst airport ever.

    Pros: None

    Cons: Poor wifi. No sleeping areas. Closes at 11pm. Cost of transfer between terminals.

    I arrived late into Sydney international terminal and have an early domestic flight the next morning. The airport closes. The ‘sleeping’ area there is embarrassing.
    I’ve ended up going to the 24 hour McDonald’s near the domestic terminal. The couches here suck, the maccas is noisy, but it’s warm at least.
    Don’t expect to get any sleep on a Friday night as there are loads of people still using the McDonald’s.

    Dormir dans l’aeroport

    L’aéroport pour les vols intérieurs ferment la nuit.
    Celui pour les vols internationaux met à disposition une “waiting area” d’une vingtaine de sièges…..Les moins rapides se verront dans l’obligation de dormir à même le sol..,,

    Transport Costs

    I’m travelling in November 2017 and just noticed that there’s a cost to transfer from Domestic Terminal to International Terminal for connecting international flights.  What a disgrace Sydney. This does not happen anywhere else in the world.

    Sydney night stay experience

             

    1.10.2017

    It was one of my terrible nights at the airport. the staff behaved like keeping prisoners in an area. They even put someone whole night to keep eye on the people who where waiting for their flight in the morning!!I was really disappointed by Sydney having an airport like this. I try not to travel via Sydney anymore!
