    The hostel was not air-conditioned but apart from that all was great, including friendly staff. I however only stayed one night for a concert visit in Sydney, so I did not use all of the facilities. Just a buyer beware booking - price was given in AUD, however comes up as a USD charge plus an added foreign exchange charge on my credit card account! It is only a few cents more, but why is it so hard to transparently display this BEFORE one books? I feel ripped off by this!

    Pretty pleasant stay generally speaking. Dislikes: the common areas shut and roof level close off at a certain time, pretty lousy if you were searching for a piece of solace in the early hours amongst the typical cramped nature of a hostel- to sit and meditate.. Everything has keycard access which is security traded for hassle, surprised the toasters didn’t have them too!

    It says free wifi. Wifi is appalling. Only at certain areas can you access wifi. In your room it comes and goes. Rather frustrating. This hostel should upgrade their wifi most definitely. It is annoying, not to be able to go online from your room. Kitchen is always dirty in the morning. Staff are nice and friendly. Applause to reception staff.

    It was an okay place. I will say the bunks and rooms were comfortable, although our room kind of smelled like dirty feet. It felt very safe and the kitchen/bathrooms were clean but was really bummed they wouldn’t let us on the nice rooftop past 10pm. WiFi was terrible but they said they were having it fixed, so maybe it will be better soon. The restaurants close by did not seem to like tourists very much.

    Booked this place specifically for it’s free parking as it was close to the city but not in the centre and it offered fairly cheap accommodation. Didn’t manage to park outside the hostel throughout my entire stay, had to park in ‘P’ zones and keep getting up to move my car. Rooms were fine and bathroom facilities fairly good too. Just a shame about the parking

    The hostel was a little outdated. As kitchen is located down stairs, it was very hot and it seems air can't be ventilated. Also, one of guests seemed to do vape d*** in the room. The other hostel I went to in AU, alcohol and d*** were strictly prohibited. This hostel needs to pay more attention on drug use.

    Glebe point YHA has not been updated in 15 years, it feel like a place which no one really cares about anymore. It doesn’t have the same warm atmosphere, TV room was smelly, furniture was old and tatty , kitchen didn’t seemed to get cleaned at times, bathrooms were untidy. There are plenty of places you can stay with more modern , uptodate , cleaner facilities for the same price inSydney. Sad that my return trip was not what I hoped for.
