“Really excellent backpackers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Rooms are clean, fresh, and spacious. There are lockers (bring your own padlock) which are huge actually. Bathrooms and toilets are also really clean and big. The kitchen is so well designed. It is huge kitchen but which allow semi privacy or open sharing, up to your mood. The common place is also huge. Everything is huge here indeed, and this is enjoyable as you can relax or meet up. There is also a tennis table facility in the common room. Excellent backpackers, one of the best I have seen in this country!

I stayed here for only 2 nights in a private double room - which was massive (room 108) :-)

The staff are excellent - really friends, full of knowledge and passionate about adelaide and the things to do there. There is lots of information about local jobs/nights out etc available freely in the reception area + a book in the room with local bus times etc - really handy when you're short on time.

Free pancakes for breakfast or cereal/banana bread available at reception.

Bed was comfy, shower was hot, the rooms and common areas were clean and the hostel was quiet in a central location.

Room Tip: Room 108 is the only one i know but was a great room

I stayed in a 4 bed dorm. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms comfortable and clean. Bathrooms clean and ample showers (hot and powerful). Great shared facilities, including large kitchens and lounge. Cook your own breakfast available for $5! Short walking distance to Rundle Mall and museum districts and convenient for public buses to airport. Guests of all ages including loads of young people but also a few families and retired couples as well as cash-strapped 30-somethings like myself.
