This is a Trusted Review. Why?
One of the better YHAs as far as atmosphere goes. It's not huge like the sydney central one, so it's a little more personal. I wouldn't go back here but that's only because I would go to the Palms in Kings cross. It was definitely a nice place though.

By far my favorite hostel in Sydney, I return here every chance I get. The very best part about this hostel is its location in glorious Glebe, a very welcoming and almost bohemian feeling neighbourhood, with the atmosphere of a small village, yet a mere 20 minute walk / 10 minute bus ride (15 in rush hour) away from central station (take bus 431, and ride it to its next to last stop; you'll know you're there when everyone else has gotten off the bus). Glebe Point Road is lined with awesome bakeries, cafes, used bookstores and restaurants, perfect for spending a lazy afternoon.
The hostel itself has a great atmosphere, and features an awesome rooftop terrace with lazy hammocks (only in summer) and frequent barbecues. Its rooms are clean, the kitchen large and decently equipped, and the bathrooms are decent (although only just; they could definitely stand being improved upon). I don't care much for its TV lounge either, but with the rooftop terrace, I've never felt the need to hang out there anyway.
