I booked 2 nights for myself and my girlfriend back in April with the intention of finding an apartment in Adelaide, I am checking out today...3 months later! This is a smaller hostel than some of the previous hostels I have lived in in Oz and it definately feels much more 'homlier'. Trevor is the owner, an interesting and friendly...

I stayed here a couple of nights and strongly recommend. Trevor, the manager, was very welcoming and helpful. There's free internet and a nice kitchen, lounge, and balcony area. It is also very quiet. My only complaint is that it's not as centrally-located as some of the other hostels, but the free tram is just a block away. I would...

I booked this hostel based on all of the great reviews and was excited to stay there and booked several days. Unfortunately, I did not have a good experience. I had been traveling for three months and this was my worst night sleep in a hostel. I have shared many rooms and was excited to have my own room. It...

I stayed at Hostel 109 across the two weeks I was in Adelaide for a small conference held at Adelaide University. This was also the time that Adelaide is most 'alive' - the Fringe Festival, Clipsal car races and the Adelaide Writers Festival were all on at the same time. The hostel was an incredible place to stay during this...

My boyfriend and I stayed one night to attend a wedding. We'd stayed here before; both this occasion and the previous one in a double room (private room, shared bathroom). This place is great value - clean, quiet, great facilities, most of which we didn't use but it's good to know they are there! Very short walk to the Central...

This place has amazing facilities and is the cleanest hostel that I've ever seen. The staff were welcoming and helpful and the kitchen was brilliantly kitted out for preparing your owns meals. Easy access to anywhere you want to go in Adelaide and was more than affordable. The free wireless was an excellent bonus to the whole situation. You won't...

I lived at there one night, but the accommodation gives me great impression. It is one of the cleanest hostel I have ever lived before. I reserved a single room at there. I think the room is small, but it meet my demand. The drawback of the single room is lack of sunlight in the daytime. In general, I am...

The hostel was very nice and friendly, and we stayed in a twin room for two nights. The hostel is located close to downtown (within walking distance). Free high-speed internet is a big plus, as it is quite rare to find. It is good value for money, and I would recommend it for all travellers as a budget option. The...
