Good price and quality. ”

Clean and quiet place, not crowded. Facilities in very good conditions and clean. Simple breakfast but enough for the price u pay. Although it's noisy on weekends until 1am as there is a pub working in the hostel balcony.

Located at the centre of Adelaide CBD. Very convenient to go anywhere in the city. Cleanliness was okay. Small kitchen but well-equipped.

The rooms are located next to a bar. Can be loud during the weekend but I had no problem during weekdays. Decent place to stay if you plan to travel most of the day.

extended stay in adelaide with options limited.”

An easy and accessible bunker to tide over the harder waters that don't easily subside. A surprisingly cost effective resting place to recharge the jaded batteries and catch up with shopping, dinner and walks.

Above average”

Rooms and kitchen are clean, but reception staff not that friendly, also no raw milk for Breakfirst, also everyday questions for check out even though booked for 2 days , especially that man Syed, toilet and shower are clean, but only the attitude of staff that makes not happy, central location , close to transport, Good kitchen with gas and all utensils, Check out time 9.30 am too rushy, and they put notice that they charge $20 late fee if late by 10.30 am and after 10.30 am they charge one full nights charge. that creates tension and pressure , and cant sleep peacefully the night before check out.other than that everything fine.

Guest always bring many outsider in and sleep together sometimes they are drunk and the room is next to the bar which is always noisy till 2-3am be careful ! Worst experience ever if you’d like party or messy roommates please stay this hostel

The staff is nice. Just to make sure you check out on time or there will be a charge. Many restaurants around and it’s near the Rundle Mall so it’s very convenient.

NIGHTMARE.”

Based on my real experiences, imagine when you have to negotiate with rude lady receptionist about the early checkin and payment stuffs that you are already gave them a notice. Dirty bunk bed with heaps of fresh and dry rubbishs under the bed. Noisy at night start from 6 pm- midnight most of the time (I spent 3 nights) plus unrespectable by roommates(you might got lucky unfortunately I got a jackpot). Last, just can't wait to move out, it's totally nightmare. goodluck.
