Great hostel. Clean, lots of showers, free wifi, fairly big rooms for the numbers. 10 minute walk into town. On Tuesday's look out for free bbq. Lots of cheap beer and a great common room for meeting people One minor quibble. Only two power points in room of eight. However lots of charging spaces in common area.

Very friendly and convenient place to stay when you need to stay overnight in Adelaide. Brilliant staff, the room was neat, clean and comfortable. Other guests were quiet and considerate. Homely atmosphere. Just wished I was there on Tuesday night for the free BBQ! Free breakfast was generous and coffee on tap kept us going. I will not hesitate to stay there next time I have to be in the city overnight.

Awesome stay! The staff are generally lovely, exception of one guy who didn't seem to be fussed with being informative or helpful when I first checked in. Great location. Super close to tram and the city is so small you can basically walk everywhere anyway. Would recommend!

Hi and thanks for taking the time to review Backpack OZ and the Guest House. We are sorry that you had a supposed unpleasant experience with one of the staff members at check-in. After reviewing the CCTV footage of your check-in, it seemed there was no problem at all, with smiles and laughter coming from both you and the receptionist. And you where also upgraded! Kind regards Backpack OZ and the Guest House

Good hostel with free wifi although is is not the best. Owners if you meet them are very friendly and talkative. Hostel had a good size kitchen with plenty of appliances and only a 10 minute walk to main city centre

Friendly feel. Wifi was disappointing. Free breakfast (cereal and toast) was good but was cleared away at 9. Liked the common area with big tables and sofas.
