Centrally located and easily accessible from the airport and to get around. Room is neat and simple. Bed, pillow and blankets are provided. Of cos the quality of your room depends on who you get to have in your room. Overall it meets the basic requirement of a simple and cheap accommodation. I like it that there is no party...

Very nice, clean and modern hostel in the CBD, near all the shops and malls. It's the most expensive hostel in the city so 1 or 2 days is fine. Lots of facilities. Every day activities. Very welcoming staff.

This hostel was fantastic. Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location and rooms are well kept and spacious. Also there are two plugs in the lockers in the room which is great to charge your valuables when you are not present.

Stayed for a night when in Adelaide for an A-League game early last year. Was booked as cheap accomodation with the bus trip that I was on, and being my first time at a hostel, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the YHA. Facilities were clean and staff were very friendly. I'll definitely stay there again.

Stayed at Adelaide Central YHA from Christmas Day 2016 onwards for 2 nights. When we arrived at the front desk, we were greeted by a happy and cheerful receptionist. She took down our details and when I told her that we had been driving for 10 hours in 41°C heat; she offered us icy poles. She even cut it up...
