DO NOT STAY HERE. This hostel is the worst hostel i have ever stayed in. Im a young aussie man and stayed in a private room and still felt completely unsafe. The hostel is full of residents and there are no travellers, on top of this half the residents are crackheads and junkies. There were literal cum stains on one of the beds and we were woken up at 6am to a junkie screaming out his girlfriend for 3 hours with cops involved. Stay at the YHA or tequila sunrise. I cannot stress enough how horrific this hostel was. There are also no staff on premises so complaints and security are off the cards as well as having a strict no refund policy in which they charged me the full amount 3 days before i arrived?!? If you do not want to experience crackhead adelaide lifestyle please stay elsewhere, this place is for cheap accom in adelaide, not somewhere travellers should be staying.
