One of the nicest hostels we had stayes in whilst travelling australia. Best calue for moey and we were upgraded to a 6 bed dorm from a 12 on arrival after there had been a mix up with our booking. Great staff, lovely clean rooms, common area amd kitchen. Would reccent this place to anyone and would certainly stay there again!

I loved the staff but one lady told me that the information desk was at the old location instead of the new one. No big deal because it was a quick walk. There was no free wifi which sucked but I liked the rooms and big living room area! The couches were comfortable and the people were friendly and interesting.
Very thin walls so you could hear everything at night. The internet was also very expensive!
The location was good, and the staff always seemed to be cleaning the toilets and kitchen, if the kitchen got messy that was due to the people staying there not cleaning up after themselves.
definitly a nice hostel. was the money worth. quiet clean and friendly stuff!
Cheap, but it could be more clean.. The bunk beds were covered with a thin layer dust... Also the carpet floor looked like dirty. Staff were very sympathic.
I like the place, there are some things though I want you to know: - They will use your e-email registered for commercial spam by a third party (once in my case), without asking for permission beforehand, so be sure you agree to their private policy and conditions Half of the staff is really nice and helpful, others of it sadly are not, but acts quite arrogant.
Honestly, I don´t know why this hostel got rewarded "the best hostel in South Australia". The dude at the reception can´t be bothered at all. You´re there but that´s it. The kitchen is good and new, that was nice. The rest is just there, but not something special. The location is good and the price was ok as well (winter). I wouldn´t go back to that hostel. Rather pay a little more and feel comfortable. Cheers guys
The room with 8 beds is not so big and also you can't enter easily in it if you have a luggage, because the door opens in front of the lockers and there's only maybe 50cm of space. You have to pay a lot for everything: Internet, laundry, breakfast, towel, alcohol.. also for the lock for the lockers in your room! Also there were something strange in the room (in the moquette or in the blanket) because my girlfriend got a strange bad skin reaction!! If it is cheap, that's a reason!
It was really quiet because it was winter but still generally good.
