Sydney stay- Surry Hills or Paddington?

Hello,

I'm looking at some accommodations on Airbnb for a 4 night stay in Sydney. The places that we are visiting are the typical tourist areas- The Rocks, Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, Botanic Gardens, Bondi Beach, Paddy's Market, Chinatown etc. We are relying on public transit to get to these places.

Do you recommend staying at a location in the Paddington area (Edgecliff Station - 7 min walk) or closer to Surry Hills by the University of Technology Sydney (Central Station - 3 min walk)? Both are about the same price.

Surry hills will give you access to Chinatown and Darling harbour right away. The rest is just a walk or a train ride from Central/town hall. Paddington is no where near as convenient.
