    Very Good

    Yeah this place is fine for a night or two. The bed was comfortable and people were quiet coming in late but the showers were a bit grim. We also only managed to find the building because we happened to walk someone who asked if that's where we were going and told us it was on the wrong place on the map.

    Not really a hostel. But reflective of how far behind Australia is compared with hostel standards across the world. This is not so much a backpacker hostel, more for long term stayers who are working 18-30 yo. Alot of couples sharing beds in rooms. Bar very loud until around midnight. Staff very welcoming (thankyou). Big kitchen and comfy common area. Overall an acceptable stay but nothing to write home about.

    Best location! Less that 5 minutes to Rundle Mall. Nice terrace to sit outside. But rooms next to it hear the music very loud. Bathroom smells like chlorine, showers don't work that well. Stuff was ok, but not super nice. Atmosphere was rather gloomy, Hostel was pretty empty when I was there. Would try another one next time. Kitchen is good. Good wifi.

    Private room customer. The room we were assigned ( 3 people) was incredibly small, no air con, just fans to plug in, view onto a storage room, noise from the public bar underneath, but worst of all, no lift! The room opposite us was better, bigger, had air con and was vacant. As we found out too late. Why we had not been assigned this room is a mystery. I also expected to get at least towels for free as a private room customer..Was charged $2 per towel! No toilets/ showers on our floor.
