I stayed in Glenelg for two nights in a private room. Interior furniture was very basic. Just a bed and a bedside table and a mirror. The carpet looked very filthy (full of stains you actually don't wanna know what it was). Shared bathrooms were ok, i had them most of the time for myself and they where more or... More

Awesome location- right near the beach and steps away from awesome restaurants and tons of shops. The bathrooms were really clean and although the rooms were quite basic there was free toast and fixings for breakfast and wifi was included in the common areas which were was sweet. and again you seriously couldnt get a better location the tram and...

We stayed at the Glenelg Beach Hostel before going on a Dolphin Swim with Temptation Sailing. I was always a little worried about staying in a hostel but Glenelg Beach Hostel changed my views. We stayed in the private room very close to shared bathroom. The room was extremely basic, it included a small work top, a few cupboards, a... More

I stayed here with my sister and 2 friends over Xmas for 4 nights. Firstly I'll say this is an amazing location it's 2 minutes to the main shopping street (jetty road) and 5 minutes to the beach. The guy who booked us in was really nice and gave us our own 4 bed dorm. The hostel is like a... More

Stayed here a week and have no complaints. The rooms were tidy and the beds comfortable, had very nice sleeps in them. The hostel can be a bit of a maze at times, but seeing as it's a few Victorian era looking townhouses knocked together to make this hostel, i dont see any issue with this as the charm and... More

Decoratively a little tired, but full of character and ticks all the boxes. Excellent location in Glenelg and very accessible to the tram into Adelaide city (20-30 minutes). The free wifi, tea & coffee as well as breakfast toast all appreciated. Staff helpful and everything works. Friday night we had live music which was good, fun and busy. Saturday there... More

After staying in a few hostels before this one - we learned you just need to get the "vibe" of the hostel before passing any judgement. This place is great for location - right on the street with tons of fun restaurants and shops and the beach an easy walk down the street. The hostel was clean and we felt... More

My first time in a hostel and fingers crossed they are all like this! Rooms are clean beds are comfy and never had to queue for a hot shower! Staff are friendly and helpful and it has its own bar with happy hour. Not in central Adelaide but located inbetween the bus and tram stops after talking to fellow travellers... More

This hostel has a perfect location - right off the tram from the city, about 2 blocks away from the beautiful Glenelg beach. The owner and staff are super friendly and will help you out with anything you need. The beds are nice and comfy, and there are no bunk beds! The bathrooms are clean. There's a really nice beer...

We got dropped off here by an Adelaide local and loved it! Great location, close to the supermarket, shops & public transport. We had a private room which was a good size and the bathroom was kept clean. Kitchen was well-equipped, nice picnic tables etc out the back, free breakfast, reasonable price for what it is! The only thing I... More
