Very nice hostel in a very nice city. Toilets and showers were perfect and also the kitchen was one of the best I've seen yet. Can definitely recommend it.


An absolutely fantastic hostel. Great value for money and very clean. Could have stayed here a lot longer. Thanks to all the team for being so friendly and helpful. Also... Free soap powder - what more could you want?!

The hostel was relatively close to everything, with decent kitchen facilities. My partner and I enjoyed our stay, especially as we were in a 3 bed dorm however we had it to ourselves for both the nights we stayed there.

AMAZING!!! Iwould stay here again in a heartbeat. Trev at the desk is SOOOOO helpful! He knows so much and is SO kind! He even helped me fix a reservation i made for my next hostel! They have lockers outside of the rooms, and wifi that works well. The bathrooms are CLEAN!!! The kitchen gets messy but that's from people using it, not because the staff never cleans it. They have some common area outside as well as inside too :)


Staff brilliant, very friendly and at all times most helpful, which helped to overcome facilities, particularly furnishings which if upgraded would vastly improve hostel.

4 bed room is a bit too small. Good location.


Decent hostel, secure and pretty clean. Perhaps too few showers and toilets, but otherwise recommended.


The rooms were very clean and big, and the airco was working very good!! It was really nice to have free wifi!


We only stayed for one night but if we come back to Adelaide, this is the place we'd love to stay at! Thanks guys! Stella stayed at your place, back in 2003 and besides the ice cream and apple pie, everything else is superb ;-) Hope to come back soon!


It was a good hostel! I enjoyed my stay and I thought the bess were good. I think they should arrange evenings like a BBQ. Because I didn't really know anyone.


Unfortunately to quiet for me even it is a nice place to stay.


I have enjoyed my stay and I shall let my friends know, that there is a good place to stay and is very good in pricing.

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.
