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

Glebe Point Yha is our favourite place to stay in Sydney. The hostel is run by friendly, helpful staff. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the doubles have their own wash basin. We enjoy sitting on the rooftop terrace and looking out over Sydney. There's a regular bus service right outside and free on-street parking nearby if you're travelling... More

Stumbled upon a gem. The hostel itself is a bit run down but the people are amazing. I loved it so much I stayed here for 3 months. This hostel was great because it was more of a working hostel. This is not a party hostel. There was a Friday night barbeque which is a great way to meet the... More
