Sunny's - More than just a bed; it's like staying at a mate's place!

Welcome to Sunny's, the smallest and friendliest hostel in Adelaide. Sunny's has been serving the international traveller since 1986 and has earned a reputation for providing a caring and safe home away from home while you explore our city and surrounding attractions. As one guest so well said, 'It's like staying at a mate's place'.

Sunny's is ideally located at 139 Franklin St, on the corner of Morphett St, in the heart of the city, just 100 meters from the Central Bus Station. We are only one street away from the Central Market and supermarket, banks, cafes, restaurants and pubs.

Our staff are all locals who have travelled widely and know the things a backpacker needs from hard experience, and they go out of their way to ensure your stay with us is enjoyable and memorable.
If you need advice on finding work, buying a car, getting a tax file number, getting your car fixed cheaply or just where to find a good pub, we have all the answers.

In keeping with our home away from home philosophy, we do not charge deposits on keys or bedding, our kitchen is open 24 hours per day with free tea and coffee and every morning.

Lovely wee hostel in a great location, staff are very helpful and welcoming. Hostel is small and quiet though, not a lot going on, but it’s great value for money and would definitely recommend it.

I had a great time at Sunny's!! Dave was especially helpful and gave me loads of advice for getting around the area. The location is really great and close to the central market, trams and walking distance to all the top places in CBD. The hostel has a great atmosphere too, very friendly, Just keep in mind the place is a little older and the beds are a tad dated, but I would still stay again at Sunny's!

There were no lockers inside the rooms but the team offered to put valuables in their lockable office. When I called before arriving, there was silence then a fart noise and the phone hung up which was off-putting, but it was fine when I got there. Overall a good place to stay and great value for money :) I'd recommend staying here if you're not needing extra bells and whistles!
