This hostel is really good value, with things like free wifi (that actually works!) The staff were really friendly and had some good recommendations of things to do around Adelaide. The room was clean and comfortable and the facilities were really good. We enjoyed our stay here!

A quiet clean hostel with good facilities. Not overly crowded allowing you to have your own space to watch tv or cook in the kitchen spaces. Clean bathrooms and bedrooms. Nice location near the parks of the east terrace. Helpful staff although not based in the building
