This backpackers is very central in Adelaide and quite cheap. Unfortunately it is quite dirty and not really appealing. If you want to have a more enjoyable stay, better go to Oz Backpackers which is like 10min by foot away from the center.

Cheapest hostel in Adelaide and location is perfect. I stayed in 12 bed mixed dorm everyone was very respectful coming in at night. Good... More

...that defines what the hostel has best. PROS: Easy to reach from airport using bus; close to tram stop; opposite police station; located upstairs a bar with jackpot machines; McDonald's very near and other restaurants on the same street; a short walk away from Rundle Street and most attractions on North TCE (see map), including Adelaide Oval and Adelaide Zoo....

Not the greatest of places to stay if you are visiting Adelaide, however I was on a budget and this is truly on par with the definition of budget. Staff were friendly and helpful though as they work downstairs serving the drinks and attending the slot machines downstairs. If you're not comfortable with having to be in such an environment...

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.

First of all, I stayed in this place over a year ago.. so If it is under new management it could be alot better now! A friend booked a room here for a group of us. On arrival we were told to leave because we did not have international passports. After a while of explaining that we had booked &... More
