Nice underground hostel in perfect location which fits exactly backpacker's needs. Very competent personell and large choice of activities to do or book. Because of it's peculiarity beeing built underground strange atmosphere downstairs. Security deficit: No lockers in doorms!
This was a quirky town and a quirky hostel where by now you've gathered you sleep below ground. You will only need 1 night here as there isn't a great deal to do in Coober Pedy. Due to the intense heat you will find yourself spending most of your time indoors/underground. There isn't any A/C above ground as it isn't cost effective so the TV room and kitchen area are just fan accommodated so it gets quite stifling. The kitchen had a lot of ants. Definitely worth a stop here.
$35 per night is too expensive for this hostel, especially when there is no breakfast, no wifi and no bed sheet included. The dorms have no doors. Sleeping under the ground was a special experience and the staff is very helpful!
Awesome staff allowed us to check in at 5 AM after we got off the bus so we actually got sort of two nights for the price of one. Living underground in a cool cave in such a hot town is both a relaxing change compared to sweaty nomads places and an awesome experience all in all with the cave walls and interior and everything. One of the best hostels during my 5 weeks vacation in australia.
