You know it's a good place when a competing accommodation recommends it! From the minute I arrived to Hostel 109 I was met with a warm friendly staff. I've travelled to over 50 countries and stayed in countless hotels and hostels. It doesn't matter how fancy a place is, if the staff aren't friendly then it's not a good place...

My husband and I stayed in the new section, Hostel 109 is certainly 'flashpacking' comfy queen bed, clean linen and towels with an ensuite!! Close to food and a couple of pubs and although the hostel is walking distance to Rundle Mall we used the Tram mostly. Tram is free in CBD area and the stop is not far. We...

We stayed in the new section, everything was brand new, very clean, very comfy, Trevor and his team were very welcoming, the position of the Hostel is very central to the south east corner of Adelaide City, and in walking distance to city centre.

We spent two weekends at Hostel 109 during Mad March and have to say it exceeded expectations - brand new rooms with ensuites (super clean), great upstairs communal kitchen and very quiet (yet well located) neighborhood. Great customer service and excellent value for money. We'll be back!

Good location as its close to the tram line, walking distance to market, grocery store, downtown although the tram is free within the CBD. Lots of restaurants, bars around. Josh was a big help with directions to airport,. Its a must to take bus to Glenelg beach. Also plenty of places near hostel to rent bikes from. The hostel has...

We had such a great stay at 109 Backpackers Hostel! The staff - Trevor and Josh - are so friendly and welcoming!

The hostel is well placed and has good accommodation. The staff is kind and helpful. They gave me a very useful advice on the good places to visit around Adelaide and how to get there right. They act quickly when you have a problem too.

Trevor was a very experienced welcoming owner to my first visit in Adelaide. Rooms were very clean and people staying there are engaging. Hostel 109 is just a short walk from all the main scenic spots and great Irish pubs and the location allows great scenic tours by bike from Hostel 109. Very good value for money.

Located a bit out of the centre, but within walking distance to the main-drag, this hostel offers spacious dorms with comfy beds and lockers, enough bathrooms with good showers, good kitchen, decent common-area and friendly and helpful staff. Wifi is fast and stable. The atmosphere is lacking. Don't know why. Some guests are long-term residents. It is a good place...
