This is one of the best hostels I'ver ever stayed in!
The owners are a young couple with a cute little boy who also run the place and live upstairs. They want to provide people with a fun stay, not just take their money like most other places and it shows!
Everything at Port Adelaide Backpackers is very new and clean, since they just openend. The rooms have aircon and nice beds, the kitchen has plenty of cutlery/crockery/tools (you'd be surprised how many places barely have anything).
We spent some rainy days there, but the hostel offers lots of entertainment itself. There's a pool table, book exchange and video game consoles to use for free. Free wifi is also included. There's a TV room with DVDs to borrow and watch.
The rooms are very cheap, although, since it's about 12km away from the CBD you'll end up spending the same as for a bed in town with the bus rides - but I'd say it's worth it 100 times over!
They also offer work for accommodation. My boyfriend and me asked for it upon arrival and in the following days, the owner came up with little jobs for us to do in exchange for and extra night. Thanks again for making it such a great stay and for actually caring about the guests! :)
