Stayed for a night when in Adelaide for an A-League game early last year. Was booked as cheap accomodation with the bus trip that I was on, and being my first time at a hostel, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the YHA. Facilities were clean and staff were very friendly. I'll definitely stay there again.

This is the first hostel I have been too, where when overbooked we were given a trundle, and not just any trundle, the best trundle a man could ask for. And I know my trundles, even once there was space I voluntarily would pull out the trundle each night and go to bed with big smile on my face. Leaving...

Staff were friendly and it is in a good location. Bit of a let down after seeing the YHA hostels in Sydney and Melbourne. People staying there were unfriendly and no one showed any interest in meeting new people. Also a lot of old people staying here. Definitely not what I was expecting. Also, in all of the bathrooms there...
