More staff needed - one staff member was very helpful and informative, but at the expense of other guests who were waiting. 20 minute wait to check in. Not so clear that check in was at BackPack Oz rather than the Guest House. My room was on the main road & the blind was broken, so it was not a quiet night. I manually unrolled the blind so at least I was able to block out most of the streetlight. The TV didn't work (no remote). Facilities/hostel were fine, a bit tired. Girls hair on bedsheets.

20 minute wait to check in is not acceptable - we will 'check into' how this happened (pardon the pun). We replaced the remote control and the blind is being fixed this weekend. Thanks for commenting and we are sorry we did not meet the standards that we normally reach as one of the top 3 rated hostels in Adelaide. Happy travels.


The hostel was very clean, secure and well equipped, however the room i was staying in was fairly noisy due to its proximity to the kitchen and bathroom. It was also on the ground floor with a window right on the street which meant there was a lot of car/foot traffic noise and talking from other guests smoking outside. On the whole it was a nice place to stay but if you stay on the ground floor i'd recommended bringing some ear plugs to help you sleep.

Thanks for your nice comments ... we might put up some No Smoking signs out the front and ask the restaurant next door to direct smokers to the other side of the building. Happy travels!


Perfect Location, Free Bikes To hire, Sister Hostel OZ backpackers really just Across The street. Dominos pizza also next door with pizza from 5$. Rooms really big and nice , with AC and private Washbowl. I would definitely stay there again !

We hope you can stay again one day! Happy travels!


Enjoyed our two nights here and had very good sleep. Bedroom, bathroom and kitchen are all very clean. The sink in the room was very handy - don't need to go to the communal place to brush your teeth! Would like to recommend to others and would like to come back next time.
