I have stayed in many better budget hotels as this was one was quite noisy and not very clean. However the price was good and staff were very accommodating. Quite good location close to the central markets. If you want good value but don't want to stay in a hostel this would be a good option.

I will start with a positive note, the receptionist was lovely, and had a good attitude and made checking in and out easy, unfortunatly the good things end there. Stayed here for 2 nights with regret. Yes it is a cheap place to stay but it still should have been at least a bit better standard! (Have stayed in budget... More

I made the mistake of having my wife book a hotel (and I use the term loosely) room for us for a one night stay before leaving on the train tomorrow. We just checked in a few minutes ago and I am completely disgusted with her choice. I am typing this from our room which bares a remarkable resemblance to... More

I stayed two nights in this hotel and found it very convenient. Price is reasonable. Located 5 minutes from the central streets, very near is the tram stop, you can use it to approach Glenelg and all city center. Staff was very responsive and polite. They upgraded my room for free. Wifi was perfect. The minus is that there are... More

Everything was just ok. The checking-in was fast and efficient. The room was small but there was a clean bathroom, air-conditioning, fridge, kettle, TV and FREE Wi-Fi in room! The walls are thin but we had a good night's sleep. Near Adelaide Market and Chinatown (good and cheap food in the food court). It was ok for a few nights... More

This cheap accommodation is excellent value for money. Rooms were spacious and included windows, TV, comfortable bed, bedside tables, portable closet and desk. In the room there was also a fridge, kettle, free coffee and tea, cutlery and plates. The bathroom was small but sufficient with clean towels provided. However, no body wash or shampoo. Shower was clean. In the... More

Your comments about providing body wash/shampoo are being studied seriously with a view of doing that. Thank you for helping us raise our stand of service. Paul. More

I stayed two Saturday nights whilst enroute through Adelaide to the Flinder's Ranges and back. This place is exceptional value for money.
