Glebe is a very friendly hostel for long term residents and short term guest free BBQ on Thursdays, free breakfast all week not far from the city with bus stop right outside. Super friendly and cool staff!!!

I strongly recommend this hostel where I have been for 6 months altogether. Most of people stay there for a long time since everybody enjoys the location, the building itself (beautiful architecture), the garden area... Besides, the staff is very friendly and always make sure that everything is ok. There is no deposit to leave (neither for the automatic key,... More

Stayed at Glebe Village for about 8 nights and it was pleasant stay - mainly due to the people and not the rooms. The atmosphere in and around the hostel was great, people from all corners of the earth and of different age as well, very relaxed and party if you wanted to. Location depends on what you want, bit... More

The staff were rude and condecending to me, unprovoked. The place is rundown and unkept. The public toilets on the street are cleaner! It is the most disgusting place I have ever stayed so I wasn't surprised that there wasn't even toilet paper. The sheets smelled of sweat. I couldn't sleep. The only positive was that it was in a...

I stayed altogether 5 weeks in this hostel and although it could be cleaner, it felt like home for me. Mattresses, duvets and pillows are the cheapest of the cheapest and absolutely not comfy! But the garden area is superb, easy to get in contact with the other people. Free BBQ on Fridays and other cool stuff like nachos and... More

Good: - Nice area. Leafy and quiet, but only 15 min by bus to the centre. - Good atmosphere, you meet people easily here bc of communal spaces. - Staff is very friendly and helpful in general. - Some people complain about the night manager, but I liked him as he had no patience with noise after a certain hour....

Several weird guests at the hostel, plenty of potheads and cannabis smoke around the hostel which creates a lot of disgusting 2nd hand smoke, individual guests took up more than two lockers and even moved my stuff without my permission, doonas had no covers upon arrival. The night manager is extremely rude and arrogant and told me off for making... More

Because 'Glebe Village Backpackers' in Sydney is the "sister" of 'The Nunnery' in Melbourne, it was only natural that I was going to give the Glebe Village a try. Not before I looked it up online though and compared it to other places. I had been to Sydney before, staying in Kings Cross and did not want to return to... More

Nice hostel, close to the City without being too close. Free breakfast is good, as is Barbeque every Friday. There's a nice relaxed mood, and easy to meet people. Good atmosphere, other than the comfrontational night manager who screams at everyone to get inside every night. If you fail to move he threatens to evict you from the hostel. In... More

My partner and I stayed here in 2012, our experience of the hostel was very mixed ( we stayed here twice, once in summer once in winter) during summer it has a great outdoor area where everyone hangs out so very sociable and good for meeting people, friendly staff and although run down we found it quite cosy and friendly....
