We stayed here for a couple of nights mainly because it is affiliated with the company we did our Uluru tour with (Mulgas adventures) and it wasn't bad, but we did move to the YHA after the trip which was much nicer. The hostel itself is alright, the wifi is only in public areas and a bit dodgy at that....

The highlight of this place was the very friendly staff. The place is what the name says- backpacker motel and that's what one gets. Our room was very spacious but the shower needed a bit of a deeper cleaning, the sink was barely enough to brush ones teeth, the pillows are in dire need of a refresh but hey, it...

Very nice hostel with ensuite bathroom and big matresses. Close to everything in Adelaide. Staff is friendly, offers shuttle buses to the airport. The bathrooms could be better equipped. Prices are fair.

Haven is a big hostel so really noisy. There are ensuite bathroom which is not really good in a 8 dorms room with just 1 shower and 1 toilet in same room. If you like to stay in a smaller and really good hostel go to alice lodge backpacker.

I didn't like this hostel. It wasn't clean - I pulled out a huge amount of hair from the shower drain. Not a very social envronment, terrible wifi (needs upgrading but hasn't been), awful breakfast, cheap white bread and jam, not worth bothering with.
