    Hard to point a finger at anything wrong with this place. It was quiet, when I stayed there but they have a bar downstairs that are very nice. The location is amazing 5 minutes walk from the ocean and beach. The staff is very sweet and helpful and the room was beautiful with no bunks. You can catch a ride directly from the hostel to Kangaroo Island, if you book such. Kitchen was nice and big with a dining room in the middle. No lockers in room. I wish I had more nights there.

    Very close to the beach and places to eat - so location is great. They have a bar on-site and sell cheap pints which always gets a positive response from me. There’s a big TV room and kitchen as well. All the beds were singles in the room I stayed in which is preferable to bunks for obvious reasons. Would definitely stay again.

    Location here is great. Bedding was spotless. Building security good, just a pity no lockers. Great free parking around, and public transport great. Would certainly recommend.

    Overall I was super happy with my stay at Glenelg. The few things I was disappointing with is that there are no lockers in the rooms themselves, but the do offer storage at reception, but that can get kind of annoying if you just want to lock up a tablet while you're out for the day. Also didn't like that the washrooms I used didn't have proper hooks/ledges to put my clothes & toiletries. Instead I had to put it on the ground instead...

    Great location, bathrooms always spotless clean. The other common areas could have been cleaner. All single beds which is great but mattresses and pillows could do with being upgraded and also the need for security lockers as there is none. Staff are great and overall a very homely feel about the place.

    Only stayed here for one night after our flight in from Perth. We got here late in the evening but thankfully the man came out to book us in. The dorm didn’t have lockers and people were smoking inside it which wasnt pleasant. Free breakfast was good and staff were lovely.

    The shower did not work for days. When I finally found one with warm water, it was only for a very short time.
