Hostel 109 is located close to the city center of Adelaide in a incredibly calm street. The staff is friendly and helpful. Good rooms, wi-fi, free coffee, tea and seasoning. Only downside is the shower water that goes from hot to cold sometimes. 5 stars for sure.

I stayed at Hostel 109 in April whilst travelling up the west coast of Australia. I used this hostel as my base to do the weekend tour of Kangaroo Island and the 10 days tour of The Red Centre. The staff all greeted you with a smile and remembered your name, so it felt like I was coming home after... More

Good location, short work to the city centre. The English Manager was really helpful, asked how to get the Glenelg and Henley, he knew which bus numbers to get on which helped out massively. Kitchen was big with plenty of cooking spaces, lots and lots of fridge/freezer space perfect for a busy hostel. Shame you can't choose the guests you... More

Charming hostel with great kitchen and outdoor patio! One of my favorite places I've stayed! The check-in is across the street but the staff is friendly! The rooms come with a desk which was nice to have for personal computer space in the room. And there are free bikes to rent on Thursdays! I would stay here again!

First time in a hostel for a while and I expected something very different from what I found. Upgraded to a double private room I had my own tv and fridge (had to buy some beers just to go in that baby) it felt more like a hotel than a hostel. Great facilities, easy access from the street and a... More

I was recommended the 109 by a friend and I was not disappointed. The hostel is very clean has all the facilities you might need plus more. My room had its own fridge and TV. There is a communal kitchen with pretty much everything you could need if you wish to rustle something up to eat yourself and there is... More

Fab hostel. All the usual amenities - plus a few extras! They are mostly internal rooms - but with windows looking onto these internal spaces which have skylight light. Doubles are two singles pushed together made up as a double - never ideal, but ok. And here you couldn't feel the join, and it just made it feel like a... More

Great for what it is, a comfortable, clean and economical way to stay in Adelaide. Good if you are on a budget as it has it's own laundry and shared kitchen facilities. For us, it was unusually quiet for what was essentially a backpackers hostel.

Stayed here for 2 nights before my kangaroo island tour. The owner was very friendly. They have a good kitchen and free internet use. The walls are a bit thin but other than that it was a good hostel.
