              Position good

              room tiny, with no where to hang clothes. One power socket hiding under bed which we had to move to use power. Very little cutlery, plates or mugs.

              So clean! The kitchen facilities are EXCELLENT totally clean unlike some other hostels in Adeliade. The girls dormitory is bunk bed free and in a lovely period room. Shared bathrooms are clean. Nice free breakfast and good bar. On the tram line, close to the beach & the cafes.

              Sometimes a little loud at night because it is near some bars. But this didn't bother me so much. It's quieter than most youth hostels. May have also been because the window was open and my room fronted onto the street.

              It was cheap and good location.

              The room was quite warm as there was no air-conditioning (but I understand that as the price was cheap according to the location).

              The location, ten km from downtown Adelaide, and four kilometres from the airport, made it convenient when we arrived late at night after a long flight. It is also a two minute walk to a beautiful white sand beach. The building is attractive from the exterior, being sandstone, and dating back to the nineteenth century. There are shops and cafes right outside the hostel. Buses and trams to downtown Adelaide are within a minute's walk. The person on night duty kindly stayed open for us after we had advised them we would be arriving late.

              The common areas were very unappealing, with old furniture that was worn, dirty and stained. The areas were generally unclean, although the rooms, toilets and showers were clean and adequate. The light 'breakfast' that was included consisted of tea bags, instant coffee, powdered coffee creamer, three loaves of white bread left out for guests, and large jars of jams, all left in a kitchen area that was uninviting, at best.

              9.2

              Location is ideal without the usual added cost for the beachside convenience.

              The door would rattle everytime someone came through the main door.

              Cheap and good location - all we needed for footy trip!

              The bed was clean and comfortable.

              To get to any reception on arrival we had to pass dozens of drunk people partying which carried on till all hours of the morning spilling out the street, Bathroom facilities outside and not up to scratch. Advertising continental breakfast, which consists of bread, margarine and squeezie bottles of marmalade and jam, tea and coffee and no milk. Self service. This is not a continental breakfast as we know it. Price was exorbitant for that accomodation offered.

              Friendliness of staff and initially the hostellers who I met whilst there

              Hostility by others due to my snoring nearly caused a fight

              Close to the airport

              The barman telling me I couldn't have my wine in my room. That put me off having a drink at the hotel. I won't return

            • Single

              Bathroom on my floor out of order. Inconvenient for toilet use particularly in the night. The keyboards on the computers were filthy. They need to be kept clean. Unhygenic. Otherwise I liked it there.

              Fast service, cleanliness, location of the hostel.

              I upgraded to a queen single room for $50 more a night alot better option especially when you meet someone and want more privacy at a great price so I stayed another 2 nights.

              The breakfast provided in the price is only toast and jam or marmalade, breakfast cereal should be added to this aswell.

            • Single
              5.8

              Location and coopers pale ale on tap

              price to much for this kind of backpackers compared to rest of world

            • Couple
              6.6

              Liked the location, and the bar downstairs and the staff were very friendly.

              For the price, expected a bigger room. Didnt like the fact towels were extra, especially seeing as it's a backpacker place. Also being female didnt feel secure not having a lock on the shower doors itself, only the outside door which meant if you locked it no other person could use the other shower.
