Review for shared dorm room. Positives: - 2nd floor women's bathroom has been upgraded - tidy, (mostly) clean, plenty of showers - located in quiet residential area (all party noise has to stop by 10pm so even if folks are celebrating on the rooftop, you know it'll stop by 10pm) - great rooftop area, go up to see sunset and...

The staff at Glebe Point YHA were so excellent. They were really friendly and helpful in booking our days out in Sydney. The room we had was very clean, spacious and comfortable, and it was a nice touch that there was a basin in our room. The bathrooms were also good, the showers were clean and the toilets were mostly...

For a backpackers it covers the basics, you'll have somewhere to sleep, eat and shower but the facilities are pretty tired and in need of a deep clean. We stayed in a private room (it was all that was available in the Xmas week), and it was considerably cheaper than the other YHAs in the city. However we found some...

The location all in all is good and the staff is very friendly. Some showers and toilets are new, other ones are quite worn away. The rooms are tidy and clean. Beside the beds most things are also worn off but still ok. They offer a lot of activities in and around the hostel for small money or even for...

This room was undergoing a renovation when I stayed, so it was very loud and dusty during the morning and later into the day. There was only one bathroom for the entire floor, but it never really seemed occupied, so not a huge issue. The rooms were very clean and organized. There wasn't enough outlets near the bunks, but there...

I stayed here for a week and loved everything about this hostel! This clean and cosy hostel is located in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood.

Staying in Glebe

Neighbourhood Profile
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.
