Free breakfast, which is always nice. Could do with aircon instead of ceiling fans.


Only stayed 2 nights. I didn't spend my day at the hostel so I can't talk about the atmosphere but the place is comfortable to sleep, has easy access to buses to go to the city. The suburb where is located is cute.

Good Hostel. Location is not the best. Takes a while to get into the city, but there is a bus right in front of the door.


i really enoyed my time at this hostel, The reception staff were always really friendly and helpful. There were a lot of long stayers at this hostel, but they were not cliquey at all, they all made me feel really welcome and were always very friendly! I only stayed a week and was sad to leave!! It's not the most clean place, but it makes up for it in atmosphere and location. Wednesday there is a free bbq, there was soo much food that i couldn't eat it all!!! great!

Very messy in the rooms and kitchen, no free wifi, had to make my own bed and strip it at the end of my stay (did not expect to have to do this...what am I actually paying the staff to do!?) No lockers, very basic brekkie. Nice staff but wouldn't recommend. Too expensive for what you get.


Categorically one of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in. Hygiene level was a disgrace. Beds creaked like there was no tomorrow. Linen was stained and staff not terribly apologetic when we asked for new sheets. Glebe is a great part of Sydney, this hostel benefits from being located in Glebe. Aside from that. it is a total dive in need of a desperate upgrade of ALL facilities - beds, showers, wifis, common areas, kitchen, eating areas.
