TeaLeaf: Thanks guys. Gave that a try but all 6 of them wanted a daily rate, minimum $120 a day, flap that. Will have to keep trying.
Peppery: You could check Airbnb to find some accommodating people?
$120 is a bit stiff. I paid $78 NZ a night while in Sydney for two weeks in a hotel. Not a huge room, but included WiFi and breakfast right in the centre of the city wasn't bad.
