    I had a great time here. Perhaps not the most comfortable hostel for summer.

    Worst hostel we ever stayed in! The rooms, beds and bathrooms stink. And the people who stay there are very weird.

    Smooth and efficient. No complaints here.

    It was too far out of the city unless you wanted to pay for public transport. No aircon meant the room was way too hot to sleep in without leaving the door open.

    Good location and good transport and great community area.

    The hostel wasn't that bad, given that we had booked it 3 days before going to Sydney. The staff were great, they were really friendly and helpful. However, I wouldn't reccomend this hostel because of some issues: First of all, the room doesn't have air conditioner, which isn't the worst thing in tge world, but it's really important to keep cool during these hot days, and helps coping with your roommate's smelly feet (which was my problem, the smell was just revolting). In addition to that, the fan is poorly located, so it doesn't reach you. Second of all, and most importanr, on the last day, I left my stuff in the luggage room, and there was a sign that said "glebe does not take any responsability in anything that gets lost" (or something like that). The thing is that when I got back, my trainers were gone. And I couldn't complain. Or do anything. So... I reccomend you not to go to this place. If you do, you will find that the staff is really friendly and there's an overall good atmosphere, but you could get robbed (so beware).

    Glebe was a nice part of Sydney to be in, with some nice local shops and cafes, and the light rail made it very easy to get in and out of the city.

    This hostel needs bringing up to date. The rooftop space is lovely, and the staff were helpful & friendly. Apart from that, the decor is awful, the rooms are shabby and the kitchen never looked clean. I could not use the eating area next to the kitchen, it was like being in a dungeon. The smoking area is too close to the non-smoking area. I won't be using this hostel again, which is a shame because I like Glebe.

    There are two staff members that I dealt with in this hostel that are opposite sides of the spectrum of customer service. The Asian male staff at the front when I arrived in the evening was not friendly and had a preference for being helpful to young women travellers but the other staff during the day had great customer service who was always very helpful to any person. Location is a fair walk to the city if you want entertainment but there are shops nearby if you need to eat and a pub for some minor entertainment.

    Stayed at the hostel after a night out. The facilities and room suited us for the short stay. It was 41° and no air con in the room which was uncomfortable but overall a good place if youre needing somewhere to crash overnight.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
