This hostel has 3 amazing virtues...Location, location and location! Situated on Hindley Street and at a stone throw away from Rundle mall and the historic beehive corner, its location can’t get any better. Hindley Street is Adelaide’s (declining) red light district with several adult shops, restaurants, pubs, bars and cafes on both sides of the street. This place is above... More

Now I've stayed in various accommodation thru my travels and I would have to say that this would be up there as one of the worst. Kitchen wasn't clean - there were pans that still had fat and bacon on them in the cupboard. Cutlery was few and far between. And as for the rooms.... The bunk beds were so... More

Centralized location - very near to Rundle street where there are lots of shops and malls. There are also quite a lot of eating places nearby. Room was decent, beds were comfy and we had a good night's sleep. The shared bathroom was a little old and dusty but cleanliness was acceptable.

On arrival we were told to leave because we did not have international passports. After a while of explaining that we had booked &... More

Also good for meeting people because it is not that big, everyones friendly and the staff was very helpful, helped me with carrying up my luggage and organising transfer to the airport etc which...

Well firstly I got to be honest and say that the cleaning isn't fantastic. Some areas are good and others are not so great. It's liveable and is a backpackers. The location is great and staff are friendly. The backpackers is above a gambling shop that stays open late but there's never been noise from it. There is also a... More

Awful room, dirty, sink wasn't clean. Double bed was just a fold up bed thrown into room and cost 60$ a night. Layout of hostel is terrible, old and musty. We were put opposite the "kitchen" where it was constant noise, of people playing music late into the night despite others trying to sleep. Had to spend 4 nights here,... More
