The YHA is a nice hostel with lovely staff at the front desk! I stayed in a private room when I first got to Australia in 2013 and the came back for two nights in a dorm room in 2014. The private room was pretty small, especially considering the price, the dorm room however was great. The kitchen is reasonably... More

I had to wait for my house when I booked my share bedroom for 2 weeks. I had never lived in a hostel before and I admit I was a little worried about it. Fortunately it was a good surprise for me. The building is very clean and well ordered. The helpful, friendly staff organise something to do everyday such... More

We booked the place just 30mins before arriving yha due to an overbooked accommodation we had book prior to our arrival in Sydney. Was in total bad luck because despite us successfully booked for 2 girls via booking.com , upon arrival, we were notified that there was some technical gliche and they didn't had any bed for us. However, the... More

This YHA is a little way out of Sydney central and in a very pleasant area called Glebe. There is a relaxed 'village' feel to the area and a good selection of shops, cafes and so on. To get into the city there are a number of choices. You can walk into the centre (Circular Quay) in about 3/4 of... More

Place itself is about a 40 min walk into the city which isnt bad, cheaper to book week to week once you get to the hostel. Wifi is only free in certain areas and is completely rubbish. Showers are clean, rooms are ok, depending on who you share with, there are a few long terms there. The main door locks... More

I stayed here for a couple of weeks back in 1990 and have lots of happy memories. The place had a nice, friendly atmosphere, good rooms, value for money and a nice quirky area to stroll around. Recommended.

A pleasant clean hostel, I stayed in a dorm room all by myself and loved it! Was clean and tidy, bathrooms were fine. Nothing amazing or plush but perfectly fine. But what was extra nice was that this is in a lovely part of the city and not stuck in the horrible centre with all the backpackers and craziness. But... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in November. The room was so hot and stuffy. The fan they supply you with in the room just blows around hot air. This place needs air conditioning and things are only going to get worse considering the high of the summer isn't until February. The hostel is ok but a bit rough around... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Had private room which was spacious and clean and had wardrobe! The staff were friendly and helpful and the guests were too. Just had a good vibe. Roof area too. Really liked Glebe as an area too, small independent shops and cafes.

Glebe is probably one of the nicest areas you could hope to stay in Sydney, its got a really nice vibe and is full of great cafe, cute shops and quirky people. There's always heaps to do so you don't need to ever worry about being bored. The staff were completely professional, extremely helpful and fun. They set us up... More
