Score from 45 reviews Good
Very friendly and helpful staff (especially Sam). Free bikes. Smoking area on patio. Good size room, reasonable aircon and ceiling fan. Lovely old building, whose large rooms haven't yet been cut up into stupid cubicles.
Kitchen is too small for the amount of people staying there, and poorly set up, constantly bumping into people, not enough counter space or fridge space. I realise that it's an old building, with no room to expand, but....And kitchen closes at 9:30 PM, which is way too early! Some people are still eating their dinner in the lounge, then there's a pile of plates and glasses left behind.
great atmosphere and great to use as a base to stay at while exploring Adelaide. Staff are super friendly
dripping tap but can be easily fixed
Staff willing to help, including dropping us off at the train station. Found it pretty clean for a hostel.
For someone who likes a big filling breakfast, I found the provided breakfast of white bread and corn flakes not enough, but hey it's free so can't really complain.
Generous breakfast of bread, peanut butter, margerine and vegemite available.
You will be charged more if you are taking taxi called by the hostel to the airport as the taxi will start at same side of the road as the hostel. Alternatively, you could just cross to the other side of the road and hail down a taxi which will take a shorter route to the airport.
Very very good, helpful and friendly reception.
Not the best room I got but still acceptable although quite small compared to "the guesthouse" just in front and managed by same reception. Kitchen little small.
Lovely helpful and knowledgeable staff, good facilities, free pool, nice communal area. Room was nice.
Very nice, clean and spacious room. Quiet and comfortable.
Didn't get a towel.
Quiet, cheaper than most places in adelaide
No hot water in shared bathroom upstairs for 20% of my stay. Having to go downstairs to shower. Having to leave window ajar for aircon to work (barely)
When I arrived I was told my booking was cancelled, without prior notice. Was left without accommodation for the night.
Friendly staff, close to city center; simple breakfast. Big room where you can meet other travellers
Location medium. Not very far from the center
Toilets were not clean. Rooms need refreshments
Dorms are too small, Hardy any Space to Place your bag when all beds are taken!!!
Nice location and good atmosphere in backpackOZ
No water to drink after pm9:30...
if don't lock the kitchen at 9:30 that will be great.
Staff friendly, comfortable bed, free breakfast n free BBQ every Tuesday night.
Good job boards, loads of info on tours/ things to do, everyday there was a new list of things to do locally for that day including budget options, free pool table, DVD selection, communal area was big with plenty of space, nice atmosphere
We were in a dorm with an older bloke who didn't go anywhere or do anything all day- just festered in the room and so it always smelt and was always dark and his clothes were everywhere but I don't think the hostel can stop this stuff, that's just circumstantial and all the other rooms seemed like people got up and opened blinds and doors.
Everything in this hostel
There stuff was really helpful and friendly. Free breakfasts that is toasts cereal coffee and tea.
The room was really freeze.I couldn't sleep well till morning.Also when someone used tap,I heard sooo noisy leaking sound.
The attitude of the staff, our special thanks to Fenansha and Penny!
The location is great, people in there are cool, facilities are complete and we slept well because it is a rather quiet place. I would definitely recommend.
But not have power plug in room
The location was good and convenient. I've been there for a week and the security was satisfying even though I was back to the hostel late on certain days. The bed was clean and I was also satisfied with the bathrooms. The staff were helpful too. I made new friends there. It was also the 2014 FIFA World Cup when I stayed there and I got to watch the matches with bunch of friends there. It was an amazing experience staying there and I'd definitely recommend it to my friends.
Would be great if the breakfast could be provided until 10am because I couldn't wake up that early.
Just nearby from the public transport. Very convenient if you take public bus from the airport to Backpack OZ. Room is clean n spacious. Breakfast and wifi is free. Definitely will come here again.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Facilities were good. I enjoyed my stay.
Not enough space in the room
