    I really enjoyed my stay at Sunnys. It’s not the fanciest hostel but the friendly staff makes up for it! The people here are nice and it’s a very family-like atmosphere. At first glance, it doesn’t look like the cleanest hostel but because I worked there for accommodation, I know that each room is vacuumed and cleaned daily. All in all, a very nice hostel that could maybe profit from some updates on furniture (like the sofas in the lounge area) and perhaps some lockers I would stay again :)

    Staff was very friendly and I could see they valued the importance of cleanliness. Bathrooms could use some soap and would also be nice to have hooks to hang clothes and towels in the showers. Would recommend however. Cosy and clean! 😊

    Great little hostel. Ideal location to greyhound bus stop & under 10 min walk to bus to airport!! Maybe update website with reception times as my bus got in before 7am & when I walked along the place was in darkness. However, did manage to get into room which was ideal to get some sleep after a long overnight bus. Free pancake breakfast dlish!!!! Small kitchen but clean. Rooms ok- very very cold however!!!! Don’t judge a book by its cover, it’s a lovely hostel overall.

    Very friendly staff, good location near bus terminal, free pancakes. No lockers, but it's a small hostel so I wasn't too worried. The size also makes it easy to meet people. However, I had some bed bug bites, and I wasn't the only one. I normally don't mention bed bugs in reviews because they can happen anywhere, but here it seemed to be a chronic issue; I moved rooms once but both rooms had them. Staff will spray individual beds when asked, but the whole building really needed to be treated.

    A pretty nice hostel but extremely basic. The building is very run down and old. The bedding looks very dated and it just looks like you are crashing at a mates place. No plugs or lights at each besides. There isn't much communal vibe (apart from outside) due to it looking more like a cafe with individual tables. Clinical feeling to it. No sofas or homely feel. But the guys working there are really nice and the pancakes for breakfast are also very nice. I also had some bed bug bites :(

    Very Good

    Great location close to the bus station and the bus for the airport. It is super cheap and the hostel is run-down but as far as I could tell everything was clean and the staff were super helpful. Pancakes for breakfast were a bonus, you just have to be up early enough to get them. Probably wouldn’t stay again but served its purpose for a quick stay in Adelaide.

    Very basic hostel, way too many beds and people in 6 bed dorm, too less showers and toilets for too many people. But quiet and nice, helping staff. Free pancakes for breakfast every morning were great!

    Hostel is falling apart, the place is full of bed bugs. There was a hole in the wall beside my bed and I woke up with debris falling off the wall onto me one night... When I could actually get some sleep, there's no aircon so the window is left open all night and it is a very noicey street.... Would not stay here

    commencons avec des punaises de lit sur les matelas donc faites attention a votre peau car cela vous donne des plaques rouge sur tout le corps et une démangeaison a en crevé ensuite la qualité du service de la réception est merdique, les femmes de ménage ne respect pas les travailleurs de nuit qui veulent dormir la journée pour récup le sommeil (a 9h sa allume la lumière et sa passe l'aspirateur oklm), les douches sont faites pour les petites personnes, en gros ce backpack est a éviter !!!!!🤬🤬
