We stayed in this hotel during WOMAD festival. We booked for two nights but ended staying only one night as the room we booked has no windows at all and very very small (althought it was a triple room for two persons!). We upgraded to their family room with a window which cost the same as in a decent hotel.
There was a loud band playing in the semi-basement with no sound insulation at all so imagine.., we were lucky the band played quite good. We had no other choice than staying a night since I could not get back my payment for two nights. Their policy is no cancellation refund for 40 hours, so if you don't like the rooms then badluck, 2 nights money from your credit card is gone. My advice is to view the room first before paying.
The good thing, spring beds are very comfortable. The building is an old beauty, which with a bit of imagination & refurbishment could be a lot better hostel.
The rest of the trip we stayed at majestic minima hotel on north adelaide (great area) which was excellent and worth every cent.
