In a subort, a good fine YHA close to theCity. 15 min to fishmarket, silent in night, good service and nice crew. Late Arriving from airport, after 11 pm, no problem to check in, the rest of booking next day in the morning. Great, clean and supportet kitchen. A good Base to conquer and visit Sydney.

This is one of the best hostels that I've been so far! The facilities are amazing, very clean and cosy. The game room and TV room has air cond and the bedroom has wall to charge your devices in each bed.

The location is the best of this hostel, situated in a cool neighborhood, full of cafes, pubs and restaurants (try the thai Tom Yum). But our room (5 beds female) was very hot and a little bit smelly. The toilets also weren't clean and a little bit tired. The kitchen is well equipped but also lacks some cleaning... The rooftop...

We stayed here for 3 nights after having an awful experience with a hostel in the centre of Sydney. It was exactly what we were after. We had a twin room on the ground floor. It was really quiet and staff friendly. The decor was a bit tired but all was clean. The beds were really comfortable. The rooftop terrace...

Could not have been more pleased with the location of this hostel as Glebe was a charming neighborhood full of historical houses and fantastic restaurants. I stayed in a private single room and the room was very clean and quiet with a sink and a small closet. The room also had a window, which helped it stay cool on the...

I have stayed in both the double private room and the 4 share room many, many times. The location is absolutely awesome, and I have great sleep every time I stay. The place remains consistently clean and friendly, but sometimes the reception is a bit luke warm. It has a high turn over of tourist in the bust season, and...

We stayed here for 1 month earlier in the year and are just leaving after a second month. We absolutely love this hostel. The staff are lovely, especially Eddie and Martha, and on the weekly rate you really get your money's worth. Free BBQ (with beer) on a Friday and free pizza on a Tuesday is great as well as...

I don't usually stay in backpackers but a quick , on the cheap, trip to Sydney meant I decided to stay here. Was I surprised? Yes! This place is friendly and a home for many people of different ages. Most are on working holidays but also travelers like me. The staff are friendly and helpful and that's a plus for...

$80 a night, double room. Fan. Shared bathroom. It's a really unspectacular room, but it is clean, quiet and spacious. If you want a cheap room with a double bed in a great part of Sydney, go here. Very friendly helpful staff.

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.
