Adelaide Central YHA
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 17, 2014

You know you've found a good hostel when half the guests are "adults" (by that I mean legitimate grown-up people who could be your parents).

This is well located but in a quiet area. It's incredibly spacious and clean, in both the private room we stayed in and amenities (kitchen, TV room).

The bed wasn't overly comfortable and you have to strip your bed and bring down your sheets upon check-out. Overall no complaints and would definitely stay again.

Stayed: April 2014, traveled as a couple

Have 2-night stay in Adelaide Central YHA and personally i feel it's great.

1) Front desk/reception service: Moderate, but most of the time only 2 desks are opened.
Queue up is needed in case of the arrival of massive guests.

2) Kitchen & Dining room: Clean and very good. Cutlery set is provided as well.

3) TV space: Nice space for entertainment.

4) Reading room: Plenty of books for guests to read inside.

5) Location: 5 - 10 mins walking distance from/to bus station/central market.

6) Share bathroom: clean.

7) Wi-Fi: No free Wifi provided by hostel but can connect to the free Wifi at balcony.

8) Socket in room: Only two sockets for dorm of 4 people, please bring your own extension if required.

It's good experience to stay in Adelaide Central YHA, will consider in the next visit to Adelaide!

Room Tip: Lesser people, lesser noise.

We are an older couple and stayed 4 nights in a room with an ensuite. The whole place was immaculately clean with fantastic kitchen and living space facilities. It would thoroughly recommend it. Great Location.

Room Tip: The rooms with ensuite were great value.

For $12 you can pack your car behind the hostel.

My private room was clean and towels were provided free of charge. It was in the second floor and there seemed to be an issue with one toilet continually running water which made the pipes a bit noisy, but I was exhausted so slept well.

Well stocked library/book exchange on second floor. Very helpful staff.

Room Tip: Higher rooms at the back would have less street noise.

The good: Nice location within Adelaide, easy to find. Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Fast internet. Very clean bathrooms. Lockable cabinets in shared rooms.

The bad: Its a big hostel, and can get quite loud at night(this could be good or bad depending on what kind of atmosphere you are looking for). The kitchen was packed full and there was no room to store food. The man at the front desk on night duty was rude and not helpful.

Note: Towels are extra- with a fee. Internet also is paid.

We stayed 2 nights in a Private Room with own bathroom.
Room: great room for a hostel, comfy beds.
Location: 5 min walk down the street are some great little wine bars. Great location. Walking distance to centre of Adelaide and tram stops.
Staff: very friendly. Happy to point you in the right direct to nice wine bars that are off the main road. Happy to help with any questions we had.

Great hostel. I will be coming back when the Rolling Stones announce their next concert.
