Nice location, free tram to the shoppingmall, room was ok, shower was good, kitchen was fine. Free coffee, tea and wifi!


Excellent location and staff. Very clean room, bathrooms and kitchen. One downside is that the floor is a bit noisy to walk on and the noise is especially significant at night.

Located in more of a business area, but not far from city center. Hostel was small and quiet so maybe the residents don't care. Amenities were ok but not enough plugs for a room of 8. Worked for my brief stay but wouldn't recommend for people looking for a social environment.


Easy to find location, spacious rooms, free WiFi, close to Victoria Square, nice place to stay for a weekend.

Good location. Kitchen needs some serious upgrading - dull knives, old pans, and linens were always soiled or dirty/ weren't changed often, same with the ones in the bathroom. Staff were lovely, Josh was always so helpful and friendly! Good price for a smaller, quiet hostel. And free WIFI!!


Small hostel, enjoyed my stay there! It's a 10-15 minutes walk to the city center. Nice atmosphere, kitchen and bathrooms are cleaned every day. Dorms are not too big (4-6 persons). Free Wifi. Reception is not open 24 hours! But if you know that it should not be a problem.


Quite good hostel in Adelaide, a bit far from the shops etc. at Rundle Mall. Facilities were okay, kitchen was quite nice and clean, there were older and more recently renovated bathrooms. However, the rooms are carpeted so they are very dusty. Only a few guests, mainly working people, so a bit weird & quiet atmosphere.


It was small, not much atmosphere, no staff are there 24/7 so I arrived late and you get your key from a box (anyone can access these keys once in the hostel -need keycode to get into building though). Had some extremely drunk, loud, aggressive sounding Kiwis next room from us and us three women in the dorm were scared in the wee hours of the morning. If things got out of hand we wouldn't know what to do! No staff to tell them to calm down- or call the Police! Pros. The free bike I utilised.


eThe hostel is close t o Victoria Square an transport. If youhap pen o bookin advance during promotion period, you are givn a big discount. The staff Josh is very helpful and so i the owner trevor.The kitchen is big and well equipped but it is a pity some guests did not cleanup the mess they left. The benefit of staying is the hostel offers free bikes and you can bile all the way to the beaches ( e.g. Glenelg)


A nice, well run place. The staff were very friendly and informative. Nice big kitchen and big TV lounge. Will stay again when I go back to Adelaide.

On the plus side the beds are comfy, the showers are hot and the kitchen has lots of pots pans and hobs. On a negative side reception is not very helpful at all. You are woken up every day by the cleaner or people getting checked in at ever hour. The sofas in the tv room need replacing and the room is dark and dingy. The computers are slow and aparently word is too expensive for them! No fun at this hostel nothing to get people together! wouldnt hurt to do a bbq night or somthing fun.
