6 beds in a very confined space and low hygiene levels made it difficult to inhale oxygen. A couple sharing bed below me, shaking the bunk at unsociable hours. Decent location, nice people and good price however, so at the old adage says, "you get what you pay for," plus a bit more.

Stayed for 2 night business trip, great location close to lots of bars and restaurants and a beautiful street. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Room was basic (as is to be expected) but clean and beds were super comfy. Bathroom was surprisingly huge and actually pretty stylish!

This place was a nice find after a few not so good hostels. Except they split up my boyfriend and I and said there was nothing they could do yet we checked in hours before other roommates that were staying the same amount of days and it could have been switched. The one lady was rude in reception. One room... More

I stayed there for 1 night on a business trip and enjoyed my stay. Friendly staff that greet you with a smile. I had a room to myself with a queen size bed and my own bathroom. Everything was clean, the bed was comfortable. There is no TV in this room but that is ok because you can find other... More

We had booked a private room with bathroom or 4 nights. Room was small with bunk beds but everything was clean, neat and tidy. The bathrooms were clean too, just missed a hook for hanging towels (well, there was one but on the door at other end of the bathroom). The staff was really nice, friendly and we had breakfast...

Couldn't gush more about the place- clean as hell, the staff are a pack of darlings and super professional. Also the gardens turned me into a happy, lazy, chain-smoking, nothing-doer- it was fabulous.

The only thing this hostel has going for it, is its garden with its gorgeous jacaranda trees. Otherwise, reception made the error of giving my bed to another person even though I had paid (read, I had no where to sleep). This happened to another person at the hostel and they asked them if they would sleep with their friend.... More

Our room was a private room with an ensuite, which looked newly renovated. Room was pretty bare, no wardrobes, drawers, hangers - nothing. Room was fairly large though, so this is a plus. Window has no mozzy nets, so it may as well be glued shut. The noise from downstairs was horrendous in the mornings. It was busy with people,... More

Merits: 1. The bathroom is very clean where the bathing facilities are newly updated and some cleaning supplies, such as shampoos and conditioners, are free to use. 2. The kitchen is open to all hostel guests and a free breakfast is provided. 3. The staff are all very nice.

Our private room had no shelves, cupboards etc (it was newly renovated so maybe it wasn't finished) and we couldn't leave the window open as no mosquito screen which made it quite stuffy. The bathroom was excellent! The linen was sparse, but clean and the bed was comfy. The front door of the building shuts with a bang and echoes... More

Staying in Glebe

Neighbourhood Profile
An inner city suburb along the water, Glebe has a deep-rooted sense of cultural history and heritage. It originated as a semi-rural resort for the well-to-do, but has transformed into a student-centric melting pot. Visit Glebe Point Road for ethnic cuisine as standard as Mexican, Indian, Italian and Chinese, or as diverse as Spanish, Bavarian, Polish, Czech and Lebanese. You will find that Glebe is accepting of the eccentrics and aboriginals that roam the streets, integrating students and people of all economic statuses into the multi-cultural fabric that distinguishes this suburb. Glebe Foreshore is a great destination for a leisurely walk along the Bay, and the Saturday market is a great scene for bargain hunters.
