The guesthouse is part of oz backpackers across the street and is very quiet and relaxed with no dorms just privates. Shared bathrooms are clean and pretty modern. Showers nice and hot. Good kitchen always clean. Nice roof terrace and courtyard. Laundry is cheap and fast. About a 10min walk to Rundle Mall and 15min to the museum's and galleries....

The hostel gets a pretty good clean every day and the bathroom and kitchen facilities are better than most. I had no problem with the wifi and the staff that checked me and out were pleasant and helpful. The bed was comfortable enough. It's really close to the Adelaide Central Market which is one of my favourite places in Australia...

We had a great stay at The Guesthouse. Rooms are a good size, beds comfy, air con if needed. Showers were hot and had good pressure. All shared areas such as bathrooms and kitchen were really clean. Friendly staff and great location. Pillows were a little too flat, wifi didn't work and it could be a little noisy. However, I...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 10 days and it is quite honestly the cleanest hostel we've ever been to. The bathrooms and kitchens are cleaned everyday and are spotless. It's a great hostel for the older backpacker, workers or those wanting a quieter environment but you can still join in with the younger ones across the road at...

I got 12 hours between my coaches. At first I thought I'll just hang around in Adelaide but I was really exhausted after sitting in the bus for 10 hours so I decided to find a hostel to sleep. It was written at this hostel's official website that guests can check-in at 6am and it was shown in the booking...

Dear Dorothy We are sorry that you had such an unpleasant experience with your check-in and we thank you for taking the time to write a review but there has definitely been some communication breakdown here. It actually “clearly” states on our website that reception is open from 6.00 am until 10.00 pm and “check-in” is from 1.30 pm onwards....

It's in a good location for the cbd. It's across from a fire station that was pretty noisy. It's clean with a free breakfast. There's no parking and its really expensive to park on the street. We did find out at the end though that there is 2 hour free parking behind it.

“The girls dorm (rm 10) is okay. It's quiet at night, but can get noisy & smoky during the day from guests in the courtyard.”

“rooms looking out onto courtyard are quieter”

“Room at the rear position (room no. 8) away from the roads is the best in term of quiet room for a good quality of sleep. Ask a map from the receptionist to explore the Adelaide CBD by walking.”

“Ask for one away from the street off the ground floor.”

“I had a room on the 2nd floor, at the back. It was probably quieter than the front ones on the road - but not much traffic at night anyway, and not near any loud clubs etc.”
