I stayed 4 nights there. Noisy sometimes, but has a large living room, nice staff, cheap prices, is centrally located, and has free parking. Mostly young people in their 20s, so noisy and used the word "like" thousands of times per day.

Stayed here for 2 nights and had a very good experience. Very friendly staff. Great value for money. Generous size lockers with sockets for each person. Great atmosphere in common room. Great location close to China town... would happily stay here again.

I stayed at the Adelaide YHA in a private room with ensuite, with my sister for a long weekend. Overall a great experience. The hostel is a 5-10 min walk just out of the central city area (Rundle Mall). The facilities at the hostel looked great, rather large communal area/tv area. We didn't get the chance to use the kitchen...

Centrally located and easily accessible from the airport and to get around. Room is neat and simple. Bed, pillow and blankets are provided. Of cos the quality of your room depends on who you get to have in your room. Overall it meets the basic requirement of a simple and cheap accommodation. I like it that there is no party...

Very nice, clean and modern hostel in the CBD, near all the shops and malls. It's the most expensive hostel in the city so 1 or 2 days is fine. Lots of facilities. Every day activities. Very welcoming staff.

This hostel was fantastic. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location and rooms are well kept and spacious. Also there are two plugs in the lockers in the room which is great to charge your valuables when you are not present.

Stayed here for two nights as part of an organised tour in September 2016. The hostel is in a good location and you can easily walk into the rest of city from here. We were checked in quickly and given a dorm room on the second floor. The hostel is really modern and does have a lift but we headed...
