Very cold, heater not working, very expensive for minimal comfort. Party noise at night from the street
Cheap & central but dont expect much else. Clean but old
Weird people live there. No reception limited kitchen times & facilities
Very good location considering the price. Clean and quiet .
Rooms arent heated so it was super cold. I slept in clothes plus blankets. Reception is hardly ever staffed you have to call a number on the door.
Freezing room. Loud renovations. No staff manning reception and when I called the number on the door I got yelled at by a ride man telling me it was his night off and to call the other much smaller number located somewhere on the door. Luckily I chain locked door as on my lat morning cleaner woke me up and tried to come in before 8am!!
the worst backpacker i ever did
In the heart of the city.
Second time I have stayed first time it was 46 degrees and the aircon didn't work and he wouldn't move us or give us a fan to use. Second time different room it's 6 degrees and no heater at all the blankets are thin as anything. Not happy pay the extra $20 and stay somewhere nice this place is a dump
Good location, we got to check in early.
Very poor conditions.
Homeless guy knocking on my door. Staff was rude.
Nothing spoon and knife.and one of staff is not good.
At this price, beds are all the same. What I was impressed with, was the quality of the five "roommates". All very nice, polite and great "stories". This motel must be doing something right, in order to attract such quality people, from all over the world.
Can't think of anything!
... I'm drawing a blank...
EVERYTHING! My stay here was hands-down the WORST time I've ever had in any kind of accommodation in the country! The room was absolutely filthy, there were stains on the towels and bed linen (some of them looked like it might have been blood), it looked like the carpet hadn't been vacuumed in months! The shower had zero water pressure, I had to cup my hands and catch water to throw it over myself and there was never toilet paper. I was kept up all night from a light right outside my window and there was no curtain to close and it was too high up to put anything in front to block it off. Even if I could have blocked the light, there was constantly noise, including a small child running around screaming until midnight! I booked a private room but then had a knock on the door at around 1am because the manager had decided to put someone else in my room with me! Even when I tried to check-out, no one was in the office until 40 minutes AFTER check-out time! Myself and 2 other people had to line up outside waiting to get in and they were almost late for their flight because of it! Seriously, AVOID AT ALL COSTS! It might be one of the cheapest places in Adelaide, but there's a reason for that! If it means spending an extra $10-20 a night to stay somewhere else, it is definitely worth paying a little extra. I got no sleep at all in the 3 nights I stayed here.
staff very helpful
The staff there very kindly give me lots of advices about my trip.
Noisy at midnight
good location, kitchen is bland-new, staff is very kind,
Someone was screaming but it's not hostel's fault.
It is the cheapest hostel in Adelaide and quite well located.
Cheapest price attract a certain type of residents. I did not feel secure all the time.
It was a clean spartan room.
Overpriced for what was ($90 a /night for a shared bathroom and a single bed) but beggars don't get much choice.
It is extremely cheap - you get what you pay for. There are no surprises here - bed was lumpy, bathroom door (mixed dorm) didn't close, no shower curtain, very basic - but at $20 a night, what do you expect?
Main problem - extremely noisy. My room was right above a nightclub and I couldn't get to sleep until around 6am when people finally stopped yelling outside my window.
We got an upgrade to a double room with private bathroom for the same price...
... But it was still way overpriced for what it was. $90 for a dirty backpacker room. Very loud all through the night until 6am. No one had any respect for anyone else. Everything looked disgusting and very old, such as the air con and shower. Really not recommended - pay an extra $50 to get a hotel room. This place is so not worth it.
To call this a motel s stretching it. Even for a backpackers, it was a very basic - desparately in need of renovation. Location in the West End of city is not so convenient
No air conditioning. Filthy, cramped kitchen. Noisy guests throughout night outside our door, with no night porter to control. A carpet that has not been cleaned this year. A t.v. that could not be plugged in! Why bother???
horrible never seen something like this! Shame to find that with booking. I have travel during a month in Australia and it is the worse by far
I was in town for a music festival, so for a place to sleep and shower it wasn't too bad for the price.
Only one bathroom to share between several full dorm rooms.
the bed was comfortable and clean the shower and toilet worked close to cbd price was reasonable friendly staff
the room was unclean a club right next door that operated until early morning if i had know the nature of Hindley St I probably wouldnt have stayed there
its a dump. noisy all night from the street. filthy. hot.
cold showers dirty rooms unconfortable beds unfriendly stuff
