I spent about 5 days here during my stay in Adelaide. I will try to highlight the good and the bad for other backpackers.
Rooms were a decent size. I was in a 6 share and there was room to put bags and stuff on the ground. Roommates were a bit messy but thats not really the fault of the hostel. The kitchen is a bit too small for the number of people staying here though. If you do alot of cooking, be warned, you will have to battle for space and equipment.
There was TV room/common area that was a bit cramped, but as a plus there was a huge balcony to eat your meals or hang out at.
Everything else was pretty much standard.
My last note is to MAKE SURE you get the right pin code for the main doors. They lock the main doors at night and you can't get in unless you have the right code. We got locked out late one night because the guy at the front desk gave us the old code. We spent the night outside waiting till about 5am for the cleaner to show up.
Other than that bad foul up, it was a decent hostel. The location is really good, probably the best part.
