Nice enough place to stay. Most accommodation was booked out for Adelaide Fringe Festival. Fairly easy going place, No curfew, which was good for our Fringe night outs constantly well past 3am. Kitchen and Shower was clean, and bathrooms respectable. Staff were pleasant and helpful, Was a nice place to stay for 3 nights. Woot!!!!

Andrea is really friendly on reception and overall the place is ok. The female dorn was nice had its own bathroom but was annoying the door didnt lock. Kitchen has all you need. Location is right on the edge of the city centre.


Great small hostel with a cool vibe just outside the city. After staying at another unfriendly and dirty hostel nearby i found the staff here are quite friendly and helpful and it is the cleanest hostel i found in Adelaide. Great facilities with a fully equipped kitchen and large communal area. Free breakfast, free luggage storage, free lockers and free (consistent) wifi. What more can i say, amazing hostel!

Good hostel! Clean, bathroom in the room. Nice people at reception. Enjoyed my stay.


Pro: Small Hostel with a great atmosphere, located in the city. Good mix of people. Friendly and Helpful Staff. Kitchen is clean and sufficiently equipped (3 fridges). Free Breakfast, free lockers and free wifi are also a plus. The community area consists of a TV Room and a Balcony. They also have a ping pong table to use. Contra: The 4 Bed Dorms could use some more power outlets. The Wifi doesn't work in the Dorms, you have to go to the kitchen or community area.

Cleanliness - like a pig sty- very unclean when I moved in. Pans with leftover food. Room had a lots of dirt and debris on the floor. Security - They do not take responsibility of anything. Not even your stored luggage. Location - Still a distance to walk to the main city area (20 mins) Atmosphere - Stayed with 2 tradesmen. They seem to be on long term stays and had their workclothes in the room. Not the type of people i was hoping to stay with. Facilties - sub par


As such, a lovely place, but there were many long-term guests which often were quite noisy at night and left kitchen and balcony untidy. Our room was good, but other facilities could be better (few toilets, washing area doesn't look very inviting). On the plus side - they offer free breakfast and the owner is very friendly and helpful.
