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.

The hostel is okey/ quiet but nothing is especially good. + clean + in the city centre - defect aeration in room without window !!!!!!! - 34$/night is too much for a 4BD If you like it quiet in a small building with less/relaxed people its definitely the right one for you.

We booked here for an overnight visit, but liked the place so much returned here later in our holiday for a longer stay. Place is quiet, clean and even has computers for guest's use (BETTER THAN WORKING WITH A SMALL SCREEN) There's a large kitchen (clean and tidy) a tv room with dvd too. Toilets and bathrooms clean. Close to... More

Really good hostel. Probably the best one I've done in Australia. Clean, quiet, comfortable and nice staff. The situation is pretty cool, 10 minutes far away from the city (town), the market and the bus station. Free wifi and 3 computers are available for the guest. In this hostel I really feel like at home. Thanks so much.

Thanx Josh/Trevor/Myra. Have stayed here before. Relaxing hostel. Small capacity gives a homey feel. Parks nearby for exercise. Free WiFi/Computers/coffee/tea/sugar/milk/washing powder/hair dryer. Free bikes to cycle down to the beach for a swim or through the parks and gardens. Attracts the pleasant, quiet guests. Definitely coming back.
