Great vibe's in the hostel and great breakfast. Godo place's to meet people. But like most people say here, it could need a nice makeover.


Awesome pancakes for breakfast. Free coffee all day long. Old mattress. Got a free parking space and I booked at the day of arrival, perfect.


Nice little Hostel with a great and friendly staff. The pancake breakfast is delicious. The kitchen is a little bit to small, when many people try to cook at the same time. Also the fridge could be bigger. But everything is clean!


The staff was helpful and friendly. Location is very convenient as it is next to the bus terminal. The hostel needs some maintenance and uplift as it gives you the impression of a doggy place although it maybe be clean. There were many long term stayers in here who were quite messy.


My 2nd home when visiting Adelaide.


Do not look at the actual building as this will put u off, it's not the best hostel in adelaide, it could do with being knocked down and rebuilding. The rooms were cramped and dirty and the beds were well passed there time. But 20 minutes after complaining I had a new mattress on my bed and had an ok stay. The staff are fantastic and the pancakes are a real delight. If you not bothered about the cosmetic side I would defo book here just for the pancakes!!!


Although the property requires a refurbishment I would happily return due to the excellent services. Dave was a mine of information and made our stay particularly enjoyable. We also enjoyed the pancakes at breakfast. A great vibe in this place.

The kitchen had cockroaches in every time I went in there. The hostel was very cramped and the dorm room was boiling hot!!! It needs air con. Good central location and great that there is parking.


Stayed a week. A very homely place with fantastic staff and a nice atmosphere. The facilities are pretty run down and some renovation might be needed but everything is very clean. You get pancakes every morning and the beds are comfy! The wifi is free and pretty fast. Would love to stay here again!


A nice cozy hostel with excellent staff, they'll help you out if you need anything and will make your stay as enjoyable as possible.


Such a cosy place, you instantly feel at home - it's not the biggest, the cleanest or has the most facilities, but the managers will help you with anything and everything! They have free pancakes every morning aswell, that are just delicious!
