This is my second time at Glenelg Backpackers, and I'd always come back. NO bunkbeds, relaxed owner + staff who put a lot of effort into this hostel, best location, cool heritage building (very light sleepers: bring earplugs, the walls are old ie. thin). Reliable wifi, super hot showers w/ good pressure, huge bathrooms (albeit not many of them). The only things to improve could be common areas (lack a bit of atmosphere imo), and there could be more space to actually eat a meal.

Old building in the suburb of Adelaide, but that part of Adelaide where u have beach and lot of bars, shops etc. The guy working in the hostel made our stay just awesome and unforgetable.yeah, sometimes it was hard to find him, but when we did, he gave us better room than we paid for, gave us great beer (bar is the same place as reception) and we felt like he runs that hostel mostly because he wants to connect locals with tourists and that income is just byproduct. Thank you for everything!

Came during a quiet time of year, with major construction on the adjacent main street to boot. It's a beautiful old building in a great spot close to the beach, with heaps of quality restaurants and shops nearby. Not much happening at the hostel, and staff were barely around. I'd try this place again, but I didn't have the greatest time in general on this particular trip.

The hostile looked amazing on hostelworld/from the outside, but once we went in it had a slightly haunted feel. We felt as if the vibes were a bit freaky, so we weren't to excited about the atmosphere. The rooms were definitely not as nice as the other hostels I stayed at this weekend, however it is a nice location and they did have really cheap beers/ciders on tap, which was great after a day of traveling.

Staff extremely friendly and location is perfect - just near the beach. Nice and relaxed atmosphere. Going to the kitchen was a bit difficult from my room but since it is an old building, this was understandable. Would definitely stay here again and recommend this to anyone who is willing to stay away from the city centre.

I have never seen a kitchen like that in a hostel - there is everything you could imagine! Not really a party Hostel (at least when I was there - probs low season though), still good to meet people since there is a tv-room lots of people use in the evenings. Would stay there again :).
