Right in the middle of things Hostel 109 is a great choice with good shared facilities, comfortable rooms and bed, lots of hot water and friendly host and staff. The wifi is the best I have experienced in awhile.

Originally we had not planned to stay in Adelaide after purchasing a 4WD but after a dear friend of ours suddenly arrived into Adelaide and checked into the Hostel (as they offer a variety of helpful services such as free bike hire) we decided to stay the night. We were so glad we did! Our room was really nice and... More

Nice and simple hostel with helpful staff, wifi is a bit sketchy in some places but it's free, located very close to the city centre. Single room was a bit small but was clean and furniture was in good condition. Bathrooms and showers were also very clean.

We got a double room in Hostel 109. There were no window on the street, the air of the room was though not so fresh but everything else was good. Toilets and bathroom were very clean, the staf was really kind and the kitchen was huge.

I already stayed in a lot of Hostels but this is the number 1. They should rename to Hostel 1 because it have all you need to feel like home. Josh, the Manager, and Trevor, the Owner, are 5 stars Mates and always ready to help. Rooms are comfortable and a lot of easy going guests. I would not be... More

Owner and staff are always friendly and helpful. Small, comfortable, pretty clean hostel with free computer use. Always felt comfortable here. Location is in walking distance from pretty much everything. Showers could have been hotter and wifi was a bit touch and go but everything else was great. Would definitely stay again.

Great location, friendly staff, but a dark and dingy hostel with a horrible smell running through the hall way, probably due to lack of ventilation and lack of windows. For such a great price and a great location, the hotel is still good value, but from the other reviews, I was expecting more. I wouldn't recommend this hostel, and I... More

A short stay for the Clipsal 500 V8 Supercars in early March. Hostel clean & staff helpful & friendly. Rooms are on the small size. Central location with plenty of places to eat/drink nearby. Would definitely recommend for short stays.

I stayed for a total of 10 weeks here from December to March. I arrived late and had no trouble getting through the (electronically secured) door and finding my key and room. The staff are incredibly polite and helpful, knowing a lot about city and South Australia in general and were always keen to help with any concerns people had.... More

I love this hostel! It's so clean, and it's quite small which I thought was great! The kitchen is fully equipped, showers are great (although a little micro management is needed). There's a tv as well. The beds are great! Female rooms have 4 beds. The guys who run it are so friendly! As are the people that stay there.... More
