Only stayed one night due to a 24hr layover in Adelaide so didn't really get to explore the city. The woman was friendly the hostel was clean and the bunk beds comfortable as not squeaky which is awesome. TV room and kitchen and sweet little balcony to chill on. Has breakfast included but didn't get a chance since we left early. Would have stayed longer if not leaving.


This hostel was in a good location, the staff were very helpful and the rooms were pretty clean. The only downside was that the wifi was really bad.


A small but lovely hostel :-) only stayed here a week but seemed clean and was very central! And a good price!


Had a privateroom for a night. Had a fair bit less ventilation than i would likebut was comfortable. The hostel is in a great location and the buildingitself is so nice and homey. Great kitchen, big loung and an awesome balcony. Great social feel in the place.

The hostel is a bit away from all the action downtown but very good. Wifi is consistent and not painfully slow. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Liked this hostel much better than some of the others in Adelaide.


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!
