just feel as a home, I enjoyed my stay in Oz which is very causal, relax alothough the building is quite old. thanks the staff for the free train station transfer which is very useful. Free and stable wifi. It was very quiet at night that u will sleep very well.


The guys behind reception were very friendly and helpful! We stayed in a double room which had a sink and storage area which was handy. Overall very clean and great facilities. Free unlimited wifi! Great hostel.

I only stayed at backpack oz for 2 nights but those 2 were very good. The beds were comfortable and the staff were very helpful. Showers were awesome and always clean. Recommended.

Thanks for staying and for your nice comments ... we hope to see you again for more than 2 nights !


Lovely hostel to stay in Adelaide. Staff were very nice and friendly and helpful. Arrived at 7am off an overnight bus from Melbourne and they gave us the breakfast complimentary and also picked us up from the bus station when we rang them on arrival. Very chilled and welcoming hostel. Perfect for a lone traveller to meet others as it's very sociable. Had a homely feel about it. Stayed 3 nights but could have easily stayed longer except had a tour booked. Would defo recommend!!

We try and make it easy for solo travellers to meet others as that is an important part of the hostelling experience and we are pleased that you had a good stay. Cheers!
