Our House Backpackers is both accommodating and authentically decorated with Australiana graffiti, while all the staff there are down to earth and I was happy to meet all of them however briefly! If you're looking for a friendly place to spend your vacation then I'm sure you'll enjoy this hostel. Reddy, here's that quote (turns out it's about how it's... More

When my friends and I stayed here in early December 2014, we experienced various problems. The free Wi-Fi is extremely slow and almost unusable. The mattresses that my friends and I slept on were extremely tough, hard. One of my friends chose to sleep on the wooden floor boards every night we stayed there because it was more comfortable.

Location is an advantage but not only. Staffs also friendly and room is clean. They also provide breakfast (toast and jam). If you just want to stay for few nights in city center, this is your hostel.

Service: The guys working there were friendly. Value: Good value. Sleep quality: Okay. Cleanliness: A bit dusty in the rooms. Kitchen is always messy. Drying towels and washing sponges are dirty, possibly make dishes dirtier than before. Location: Good; close to the shops, train/tram stations and Anytime Fitness. Rooms: Quite big but the placement of lockers is a bit inconvenient.... More

OHB is based in a great location in CBD, which is good if you're looking to spend a few days in Adelaide. The dorms has many beds and are air conditioned, the staff is very friendly and they have a nice little bar in the hostel if you want to play pool and enjoy a beer. The only thing I... More
