Fabulous 8.8 From 68 reviews

Very good 8.0
Perfect stopover
I arrived late in the evening and I was greeted in a most friendly manner. My private room was immaculate. The bathroom was down the hall and likewise very clean. I left early the next morning so I didn’t really get to experience the place. Neighborhood is safe and very convenient to CBD and transportation. It was perfect for me, as I needed a place to sleep overnight between flight and a bus trip and did not require a luxury accommodation. I felt very secure there.

Very good 8.0
Room was ok . Meeting a few nice friendly people but the problems was we had 2 people (1 at a time ) that snored like a train horn all night . Luckily both of them left in the next day or do .but then it's the price you have to pay when sharing room with other people . But the best part during my staying that all girls were all in good hygiene . Wish they could have 2 pillow on each bed , it would be more comfy . The mattress is curved in the middle do it wasn't comfy either . However I would stay again as it's close to the centre Market and Rundle Mall.

Clean, spacious hostel. Not enough plug points
This large hostel was clean and well-equipped. My only complaint is that there were not enough plug points in the room. They had plug points inside the locker, but none by the beds.
