Great becaude the Hostel had free wi-fi. But to wash one machine of washing was 4 $ so was the dryer. I think it's too dear.

Reception has limited hours, and entrance looks automatically. It might be a long wait outside unless other guests let you in. Booked a private double room, but we got a private 6 dorm with bunks instead. We got a 4 AUD discount because of that, but still not what we expected. It was clean. Walking distance to railway station (15 min) and main streets. Wifi is very unreliable.


Lovely atmosphere in hostel but wouldn't recommend visiting in the winter as very cold. Staff only work limited hours so if you want to check in before 9 am then there is no hope! They take a break after around 1pm and appear back at 4. Fine if you don't need help but if your getting in on the adelaide bus don't book here or you'll be subjected to three hours of terrible coffee at the bus station whilst you wait for it to open. Otherwise ok.


Not impressed at all. Chose this hostel because of the reviews. Don't understand how people have rated it. Reception is only open 7-11am and then 5-7pm. It is very dingey, hardly any natural light and almost all rooms have no windows. It was very cold, no heaters in the room. Worst was there was only one shower working and it was SO dirty. Hair everywhere, even with flipflops I felt very uncomfortable. I don't usually give bad reviews, but I was really disappointed.

This is a lovely small hostel which made us feel comfortable and at home right away. The french girl (sorry, we didn't catch her name) working at the front desk was friendly, helpful, and hard working. They have a great location within walking distance of many pubs, cafes, and markets. Their wifi is really good, especially by Australian standards, and the free parking is a huge plus. We would definitely stay here again!


Very hospitable, relaxed and enjoyable stay.
