Property Description

DUE TO THE COVID-19 SITUATION WE ARE ALLOCATING ONLY 50% OF OUR BEDS TO ENSURE SOCIAL DISTANCING RULES ARE ADHERED TO. PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE STRICT RULES IN PLACE ON ALL GUESTS. THESE ARE CRAZY AND UNPRECEDENTED TIMES, BUT WE AS A HOSTEL AND EACH GUEST STAYING NEED TO DO THE RIGHT THING TO PROTECT EACH OTHER AND THE PUBLIC. LETS ALL WORK TOGETHER AND WE WILL GET THROUGH THIS.

Are you looking for a hostel where you feel welcome to relax and just hang out if you want a break? Where there are activities so you can meet people and make new friends? Where you don't feel as though you are putting your hand in your pocket every 5 minutes? Where the staff are happy to give you free advice about what to do in Adelaide (not just sell you an expensive tour)?

Backpack Oz is a family owned and operated business that enjoys a great reputation since 1999.

FREE delicious chili con carne and rice for dinner to all guests on Monday nights.
FREE Dominos PIZZA or PASTA or RICE DISH dinner Wednesday night at 7.30PM. No need to cook tonight !

We'll throw in all night happy hours at the bar on Monday and Wednesday as well (5PM-10PM)

All rooms and common areas have A/C, and kitchens and bathrooms are cleaned daily (and we mean really clean - check the ratings)!

We have a fantastic city location - walk to cafe/pub districts, Central Market and CBD!

Our free WiFi is super fast and we have a light & bright dining & common room with big screen TV.

Our staff are super well trained and really want you to enjoy your stay and make the most of Adelaide!

We hope you choose to stay with us and leave with fond memories of both Adelaide and Backpack Oz.

    Second time staying here. Its an older building but everything is very clean and the staff really helpful and friendly. Free dinners on Monday, Wednesday. Breakfast is simple but not to complain as it is free. I liked to guests staying here. Not a party hostel but a cool vibe. I'll be back again sometime I hope!

    Lovely hostel, staff are friendly and it is super easy to meet people. Mix of workers and travellers but all get involved whether it’s going out drinking, playing games or just watching tv. I was sad to leave and would go back if I’m Adelaide again..

    Not the most modern, but the staff make the most of everything at their disposal. Offering evenings with free food (no catch!, unlike other hostels). Adelaide was too warm for me but I'd definitely visit them again nest time in the area. Fantastic atmosphere and customer service

    Great location and facilities. Relatively small which is good, makes it feel safe like you know everyone. Lots of internationals there on working holiday and looking for work, so sometimes hard to meet other travellers on vacation. Free breakfast is toast but worked for me. Safe due to evening door with passcode, otherwise enter through the bar. Good value for price.

    Typical backpacker style (good). Great location and incredible value for money. I will stay there again (or at other Backpacker Oz facilities) again and recommend them.

    There was odd smell in the room and the bed was very noisy and mattress was uncomfortable (no, I don't need luxury mattress, but if you can feel the bottom, it is not good..). Room was clean. Location good, easy to find and walk to the center. Basic nice stuff. Free breakfast and wifi. Wifi was working and not working. Cheap private room.

    Bit of an old building but kept up pretty well. What it lacks in new amenities it makes up for with cleanliness. The staff is nice and they try really hard to get everyone interacting with daily events. Lots of long term guests which throws the vibe off a bit. Seems like most Australia hostels are like this though. Location could be better.
