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.

The staff at Glebe Point YHA were so excellent. They were really friendly and helpful in booking our days out in Sydney. The room we had was very clean, spacious and comfortable, and it was a nice touch that there was a basin in our room. The bathrooms were also good, the

For a backpackers it covers the basics, you'll have somewhere to sleep, eat and shower but the facilities are pretty tired and in need of a deep clean. We stayed in a private room (it was all that was available in the Xmas week), and it was considerably cheaper than the other

Hi Rachel and thanks for your review. We are sorry to hear that you didn't have as good as a stay as possible. We have had some issues with the cleaners lately and have already passed on the feedback, this will be rectified from now on. We appreciate your feedback about the kitchen, we do monitor the traffic and cleanliness but we will investigate again and arrange more regular checks in the summer months. We will also have a word to the staff about what happened in the toilet and duty of care. Thanks and we hope you are enjoying your holiday.

The streets immediately around the hostel are limited parking during the day but usually unlimited from 6pm. Or try a few streets further away for all day unlimited parking.

Hi Adam - there is a microwave and cooktop rings, but not a conventional oven. Also large fridge, bench top etc - everything you'd expect in a YHA hostel kitchen.

Hi Kathleen - you can check out at any time that suits you. You will have paid on arrival or via booking, so all you need to do to check out is drop your sheets in the basket and the room entry card at reception, and you can be on your way!

Hi Lyndell All the rooms in Glebe YHA face outside, not internally as there is no courtyard. Some rooms are on the front whilst others face a very quiet back lane. But that part of Glebe Point Road is pretty quiet anyway as it is beyond the busier shopping area. There are 3 person rooms. You can see the prices on our website -- you need to look at the dates you are interested in as the prices do change through the year. If you want to book the whole 3 bed room, I suggest you call or email the hostel direct as at the moment just the individual beds can be booked online. But they'll be able to help you with your enquiry. Look forward to having you at our YHA.
