    Hi guys, we love staying at The Guesthouse, but pretty please: room 2 (where we’ve stayed several years in a row) desperately needs a new mattress cos the current mattress is so old, sags in the middle & is uncomfortable & difficult to climb out of. Apart from that: see you again in March! :)

    We stayed at the Guesthouse for one night and it was very clean. Soap, towels, wifi, and breakfast were provided and it was in the best location - a few minutes walk from all the fun but those few minutes allowed us a quiet night's sleep. The increase in quality of our private room was well worth the few extra bucks more than a dorm. Highly recommend.

    Had a list of things available to do in Adelaide on each day which was so helpful to plan and explore the area! Really quiet and chilled even in a 6 bed dorm.

    Stayed in the guesthouse. You could tell it was older but I appreciated the thoughtful touches (extra bathroom shelving, 24/7 kitchen etc.) The free dinner and breakfast didn't hurt! Very social atmosphere

    We love this place & stay there every year during Womad. The only things I need to mention this year is that the mattress in room 2 needs replacing (it sags in the middle so 2 people can’t sleep flat & you have to really climb out of bed), and the aircon’s remote control is on the blink. (The aircon still works ok but changing the settings is a frustrating exercise as the remote’s screen doesn’t work properly) Love the fridge, kitchen, free tea and toast, location, etc, etc. See you next year!

    The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. They were willing to take the time to explain how to get to various venues and made some excellent suggestions on where to go. I stayed in the guest house and even though it is an older building it is kept very clean. The bathroom showers are the best! Tons of hot water and well kept. My room was large and had a comfy double bed, two pillow and a tv. There were windows that opened and if you wanted an air conditioner. A great place to stay.

    I stayed in the six bunk dorm but there were only four lockers which seemed a bit odd. Otherwise, the hostel did what it said on the tin. Thanks.
