This hostel is lovely. The room was clean, with enough power points for each guest. The kitchen was very well equipped and kept clean. The bathrooms were clean and modern. Wifi was amazing, fast enough to use Skype and upload photos/download music and films. It was quiet at night so you can get a good nights sleep. Most people staying... More

Hostel 109 is the perfect place to get some decent sleep on some proper quality mattresses! The dorms and common areas are all spotless and seemed to be cleaned daily. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed, however there's always friendly travelers keen for a chat in the lounge area. Bathrooms are spacious and clean, and there are all the facilities... More

It was an absolutely amazing place and every time I talk to people who are going to Adelaide I tell them to stay here. From Malcolm and other staff making a point out of remembering guests names to taking... More

I'd stayed at one of the busier, read noisier, hostels d/t and was looking for something quiet. This place fit the bill as its location is on a sedate side street removed from bustle of busy Adelaide. My first impression of the place was that it was split up. 109 is apparently for the non dorm cliental (might be wrong)... More

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

We stayed for 4 nights, and we were really satisfied about it!! The rooms, kitchen and bathroom/showers were always really clean and everything was incredibly organised! They have free bike rent, which was... More
