Glebe YHA is a decent option for a few nights in Sydney. The main problem / benefit (!) is the location, depending on what you're looking for. Glebe is a lovely area, a 10 minute or so bus ride from Central, but the YHA is towards the end of Glebe Point Road, and if you're coming back late, or need to get into the city quickly, it's not ideal. However there's some really good food and drink options (the Thai place just down the road is great and the Glebe Deli cafe is also lovely).
The hostel is clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and it's good value. You will need a travel card though (approx $43 for a week with a My Multi Pass, which you can buy from the hostel). Check out buses before you arrive so you don't make the mistake of walking there from Central like I did after a 12 hour bus ride..
4 share dorms are quite small and do get quite hot (single fan only), but there is a sink in the room which is handy, and free lockers. I still object to paying for wifi but this is true of all YHAs it seems (they're on the Global Gossip network).
The roof terrace is nice, and the downstairs lounge area is cool. There are also computers available ($4 per hour).
Overall it's a good option but I would probably recommend the YHA Central over it.
