“unorganised, unwelcoming, cluttered.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2010

the first night i checked in, altho after 8pm, ( reception already closed) the receptionist was drunk, the night i was return from a tour a guest rang to tell me my luggage was in their room, when in fact they had been checked into my room, i think there should be a more organised night time manager. the place is cluttered, it seems the staff favour the long term stayers rather than the short term guests. no communication.

This hostel is not conveniently located. It is on the outskirts of town. A man slept in the door stoop next door each night and urinated on the sidewalk. After 7pm guests (and any of their acquaintances) can let themselves in with a key. The desk said it opened at 7am - but I know on Sunday morning it was still closed at 8:30 am.
The facilities are run down (broken shower knob not repaired for instance) and stunk of old cigarettes. It was not very clean - there were hairs, thick dust, etc. on the side table beside the bed (and the room "smelled" funky).
The other guests are very inconsiderate - and there aren't even any signs posted to suggest respect (or quiet after a certain time). A large party (music, squealing, shouting, arguing, etc.) was held on the balcony outside our room until well into the wee hours of Sunday morning - so much for a place to sleep - NOT!
We stayed 3 nights at $60 per night for two of us (in a small double bed) - there was no free cheesecake, no free rice, no free coffee, no free breakfast, and no free towels.
I'm not sure what other accomoadations Adelaide has... I wish they had a YHA there like the one in Melbourne.

  • Liked — Friendly desk staff - when it was staffed.
  • Disliked — smell and noise.
