Property Information:

Be smart and don't just got for a hostel with the lowest rate - you get what you pay for!

Are you looking for a hostel where you feel welcome to relax and just hang out if you want a break? Where there are activities so you can meet people and make new friends? Where you don't feel as though you are putting your hand in your pocket every 5 minutes? Where the staff are happy to give you free advice about what to do in Adelaide (not just sell you an expensive tour)?

Backpack Oz is a family owned and operated business that enjoys a great reputation - and not just from the free Tuesday night dinner and daily happy hour with $3.50 beers!

We are highly recommended by thousands of past guests (consistently rated top 10 in Australia by Hostelworld guest reviews). All rooms and common areas have A/C, and kitchens and bathrooms are cleaned daily (and we mean really clean - check the ratings)!

We have a fantastic city location - walk to premier cafe/pub districts, Central Market and CBD! We offer free WiFi 24/7, free pick ups and drop offs to bus and train stations (not airport), and free quality Wednesday BBQ dinner - not just a sausage in white bread!

We have well trained and helpful staff who really want you to enjoy your stay and make the most of Adelaide!

We hope you choose to stay with us and leave with fond memories of both Adelaide and Backpack Oz.

Cheers!
Sam, Penny & Tom Twelftree
