This is a pub that has a backpackers attached. It's designed to be a pub primarily, not a bad thing, you don't get people knocking on the door asking you to go out for a pub crawl, you just get left alone like in a hotel. However, if you want pub crawls start downstairs and follow the street, hundreds of...

IN GENERAL It was a cheap hostel very close to the centre of the city. Having read the previous reviews we didn't expect much and so we were not too horrified by what we experienced. We only stayed for 4 nights, spending most of our days out and about and so only used the hostel for sleeping and eating. If...

Went for a quick drink before an event. Good spot, small, great view. Right in the middle of things. Nice and easy going. Don't know anything about the food, I only had a few drinks. Best to sit outside

Ok, so it's cheap. The washing facilities are free, and the location is brilliant. That's where the good parts end. We stayed on two separate occasions (the second regrettably but very short lived). The first time was in a 6-bed dorm (where the ceiling was peeling and falling on the ground), the other in a private room (where there was...

Okay, I've only been to the bar downstairs (though I never realised that they had a backpackers upstairs - I guess you learn something new all the time). Anyway the bar out the back isn't all that bad, and it was much better when you could enter through the side door. However when I visited this place over Christmas for...

The hostel was definitely not the worst I have stayed in, but it could be better. I thought is was a bit weird at first that the hostel is above a pub, so bar is reception aswell. The light in the room didn't work at first, but they fixed that. They were friendly. But they should improve on bathrooms. no...

Can't say anything about the accommodation, I've not stayed here, but the back bar is a gem. Forget what you see at the front, it's more than a pokie venue. Once inside you'll find a very cool, laid back, almost secret bar, wood paneling, grand mirrors and leather furniture....great. And being part of a backpackers they have some great drink...

Very cheap hostel at $20 per night each it's in a perfect location! Hindley street is great for pubs and nightlife The beds are very comfy and bed sheets are clean but the room (4 bed mixed dorm) is dirty. There was rubbish under the bunk beds from previous guests and the room is thick with dust. I have pet...

Even though this little hostel might be a bit hard to find, it's definitely worth trying for this price. It's really cheap, and fine for just staying a few nights. Spent nights in hostels that were a lot more horrible (and more expensive!) than this one. We stayed in the twelve bed dorm, which is fine if you bring your...

This backpackers is very central in Adelaide and quite cheap. Unfortunately it is quite dirty and not really appealing. If you want to have a more enjoyable stay, better go to Oz Backpackers which is like 10min by foot away from the center.
