    This is a lovely, atmospheric, well located hostel for exploring historic Port Adelaide, with good facilities at rock bottom prices. Only down side is there are no staff only a "virtual receptionist" Unfortunately this did create some issues which are currently under investigation.

    Ended up in Port Adelaide because everything in the CBD was booked—very happy it was. The area itself is very nice especially the beach. I recommend renting a free bike and riding along the coast. The hostel was about as expected for the price. The thing I found very convenient was that all the rooms have codes to get in rather than physical room keys. I wish all hostels would do this... much easier than keeping track of a room key.

    Rooms were extremly messy and durty and so was the one and only bathroom on the entire floor. Besides that, the common room and kitchen equipment were fine and the location as well. Staff was nice, but no personal contact which makes it a bit unpersonal.

    Stuck around for ten minutes.. Were directed by the Skype receptionist to a room that had been covered by a sign made by its current tenant claiming it’s ownership. She seemed very uptight that we were entering “her” room and upon entering found that all of our blankets and pillows were already in use on her bed, which she was sharing with her boyfriend, despite it being the girls only dorm. She promptly returned our dirty sheets and pillows too us. The room also reeked of smoke. Money back plz.
