The building is pretty old but the facilities, security and above all, the location, are really good. They have a multilingual staff who is pretty helpful. At night it was quite silent which was really good as we had to leave the city early.

Backpacker Oz wasn't as modern as some of the other backpackers I've stayed in but it was fine. Beds were comfortable enough, didn't creak every time someone moved, there was adequate lockable storage in the room, friendly staff, good enough communal space, walking distance to anywhere you need to go in town. It's not a stand out but for an older hostel I don't really have any complaints.

Good little hostel! - a little out of Adelaide (15 mins walk - which is a lot in Adelaide.) I was only there for the cricket and the sesh, so can give no review of the city. On a negative note, lots of people call this hostel home so expects heaps of 6am alarms and lockers banging EARLY in the morning. Would recommend and return.

Free breakfast (but only until 9am) and the free tea & coffee had milk in the kitchen which was great A lot of people lived and worked there which changed the whole atmosphere and made it very cliquey The bar, dining room and TV room are all the same room so if that makes it difficult if you do just want to watch telly. They're also the only sofas which means there are people sat there talking over you Duvet covers rarely washed Unisex bathrooms = constantly pee on the toilet seat

Stayed here twice and if I could stay again I would! Lovely little hostel where everyone knows everyone and all the long term residents make an effort to include the new guests. The staff are a so friendly and nothing is too much bother for them. Perfect location so you are close by to all the sights you would want to see whilst in Adelaide and the free bikes are a huge plus for the sights further away. Have recommended Backpackers Oz to anyone going to Adelaide and will continue to do so!
