Arrived early and was met by an unfriendly/hungover member of staff (who was replaced soon after by a cheerful chap anyway). Breakfast was lovely - unusual mix of cereal, tinned fruit and boiled eggs. No toast but not missed. Wifi I never got, might have been my tablet. Generally a grubby backpackers - the room was filled with long termers... More

I've booked into that hostel because of all the positive reviews I've read before but I ended up being quite disappointed. There's a free car park which is cool, the balcony is also nice. They have a sauna, yes, but on a warm day you won't need that because the rooms turn into saunas as well. The staff was friendl,... More

Simply the best hostel I stayed in in Adelaide! Its smaller size allows you to meet everyone quite easily and makes you quickly feel at home in a big family. The place is clean and well maintained. Some cool events were organised in the common areas (quizz night in the kitchen or movie marathons in the TV room) but the... More

Lovely staff people, good facilities, everything you need is in walking distance. Made a lot of friends there and I had an awesome time there! All in all its nice, affordable and a good place to stay for more than just a few nights. Hope you'll enjoy it!

Beautiful atmosphere, lovely balcony and staff very helpful! I spent four months in My Place and there is nowhere else I would stay if ever back in adelaide. Kitchen is fully equipped and you'll always find someone to share a good meal with. Perfect location, right in the CBD, walking distance to everywhere else in adelaide, and with the great... More

This Hostel is a total mess and an unbounded cheek... it was dirty, noisy and especially the kitchen was discusting. All the guest were loud and ruthless. The free breakfast is a bad joke and only the bums who live at this place are able to enjoy this... The location is not too bad but i would never ever spend... More

This hostel is in a good location, the staff were lovely, common room comfortable and the balcony a lovely place to chat over a beer. BUT there are only two toilets per each sex (one blokes toilet had a light out so you couldn't close the inner door for privacy) and three unisex showers. Basically fine is you need to... More

The review wouldn't let me choose the year I stayed so I chose February 2013. I actually stayed there in February 2009. I practically lived there for 2 weeks when I first moved to Adelaide in 2009. The owner was very nice and helpful. There were about 7 beds in the room I was in. The area is decent, the... More
