Good 7.8 From 22 reviews

The Guesthouse - Hostel, Adelaide, Australia
Very basic room and not a quiet night
Very basic rooms, you get what you pay for I guess - however, tidy and clean. Struggled to sleep as it was quite loud - the hotel is right next to a busy street with trucks and ambulances, and my room was unlucky being next to the entrance to the hostel with some loud heavy door, and behind the kitchen. Breakfast is very basic toast and cereal (not even milk...)

Basic room, great location, awesome staff.
This is my second time staying at the Guest House. It's simply, centrally located hospitality with incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Both times I've arrived from Melbourne slightly after the 10 p.m. office curfew and both times someone has stuck around to help me out. The free bikes out front are a huge bonus!

Comfy, convenient and cheap
Basic but had everything we needed. Use of full kitchen was great and saved money to be able to prepare some of our own meals. Having to share the bathroom was not a problem as it was cleaned thoroughly daily. Excellent location - walking distance to everything we wanted
