Ever fancy being yelled at by a rude, power-mad kiwi? Love having no freedom in your hostel? Enjoy being picked on? Then Glebe Village is the place for you! The kitchen is too small for the amount of people. And things get stolen. The only saving grace is that it still draws cool travellers to drink with (but only til... More

Clean, friendly, laid-back and welcoming. The rooms and facilities are in good nick, and you're even trusted to use the communal pans, crockery and cutlery without having to give a hefty deposit! If you want to make some good friends and have fun, this is the place to be. It's also well managed so if you're working full-time you can... More

The rooms are spaceious and the free breakast is fab- the bread is fresh and soft! Breakfast even runs later on weekends which is great. We had a sink in our room which was also very convenient, especially for us girls! However, after a few days of staying here, the flaws began to show. One was the showers, which went... More

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
