We spent over 2 weeks at hostel 109 and had the most positive experience. As other people have mentioned, Malcolm and Deb went above and beyond to look after their guests, it was such a delight to be treated so well. Malcolm was so warm and welcoming when we arrived, we really felt like we were his guests and not... More

This is hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Great staff with wonderful service provided, including email communication. Best of all, the facilities...from the kitchen (well-stocked with equipment, respected by fellow users, spotless, ample fridge space, 3 stoves) to the bathrooms (cleaner than the one at home :P), computers, super fast wifi, tv and dvd in common area,...

It is difficult to enumerate all the positives of the 109 Hostel. My choice of where to stay in Adelaide was through the countless positive comments I found on the internet on the 109 Hostel and I'm hoping that my comment also motivate others in their choice. Worth checking out! * Excellent communication by email from the time of booking.... More

I wanted to check in after reception was closed, so the owners sent me instructions on getting into the hostel and left a key labelled with my name. Because I booked directly through the website I had not left a hostelworld/hostelbookers deposit and they did not ask for one. I booked two nights, separated by another two nights in between...

My friend and I stayed here for just one night but we would have loved to stay here longer! The kitchen is the best I've ever seen in a hostel, it had everything you could ever need, from a sandwich toaster to a smoothie blender! There are loads of computers with free fast internet and there is also free wifi.... More

This place was ok. Clean enough, good kitchen, friendly staff. The rooms were not that great - without direct sunlight - but we slept well nonetheless. Not to close to were the action is in Adelaide, but at the same time is was a quiet place, and the city is not that big anyhow. Free internet is a lovely thing... More

Pros: Excellent if somewhat small kitchen. Very good laundry and toilets, showers likewise with good pressure and unlimited hot water. The best self-serve computers I've ever seen. Every room has a window. Security on the front door, although someone will always let you in with them if you say you're a guest. Large screen TV and comfortable armchairs. Cons: The... More

I've stayed in a number of Adelaide's hostels through the years. Hostel 109 is not only the best of Adelaide's bunch, but one of the best I've ever been in. It's a purpose-designed building that approaches small hotel design. The owner and the rest of the staff are friendly and can offer practical tips about nearly every tourist-worthy place in... More
