Great Location, but it is really expensive for what it offers. The smell in the common areas is quite unpleasant, it seams they don' throw away the trash bins quite often. And the beds and the linens smell like they have been washed, but you can find hairs on your bed. My room was on the basement, and when I... More

Expensive hostel, beds are good - individual lights and plug sockets at each bunk. Steep stairs so awkward to get luggage up. Showers and slight disaster, one was broke and the other took ages to get any bit warm. Expensive hostel but good location, 5 minute walk to union square. Check in staff not really interested in her job or... More

Very happy with my stay at the Adelaide. Most importantly it was clean! And breakfast really generous and delicious. However, DO NOT book via 3rd party website like Expedia because will need to spend a lot of time and patience to make changes to your dates.

I stayed in the 6 bunk female dorm on a Friday night and found it to be quite nice. The bunks were all along one wall with curtains for privacy. The other guests in the room were all quiet and nice. Everybody was respectful and polite. I am in my early 50s and was very comfortable there. The other women... More

Stayed here for a few days last week. The beds in the shared dorms are pods which are really comfy and warm and there was loads of room for my things. A bit annoyed to arrive back and find I couldn't access my wine as they close the kitchen at 10pm. There was a dude called Aaron cleaning the kitchen... More

This 66-year-old stayed four night in the Adelaide Hostel on a business trip, and will go back there with my wife for a fun vacation. The Elizabeth Room was clean, comfortable, and quiet with an en suite bath. Meeting travelers from around the globe was a wonderful bonus. Fully-equipped kitchen with a good continental breakfast every day. And if you're... More

This place is the definition of a good hostel on itself. Great location, great amenities, facilities, comfy beds, plentyful breakfast, decent showers, and friendly staff. Breakfast was amazing. There was so much to choose from and so many varieties of bread, bagels, fruit, etc etc. All beds had personal shelves, light, locker and privicy curtain. They were also built-in, so... More

Good location, within walking distance of union square, friendly staff, free breakfast. Top bunks a bit awkward to get up and down due to the position and height of step from the ground if your taller than 5 foot 4 you ll be fine!
