  • 2.0.Poor

    Having just travelled through South America I was looking forward to an Australian quality hostel. I booked a private room which is separate to the main building. It was so bad that I cancelled my remaining two nights stay. Firstly there was no towel in the room & the bed wasn’t made. Apparently towels are ‘for hire’ so I had to cross the four lane busy road back to the main hostel to get one. Secondly, the electronic security key would not work when I got back late at night (11pm). Again, I had to walk across the four lane busy road, in the rain, and phone the after hours emergency numbers to get a new room key programmed. This ordeal took about an hour. Thirdly, there was no hot water the next morning in any of the showers. Again, I was asked to cross the busy four lane road and use the showers in the backpackers. I could see that the hot water service may not be repaired quickly and if had enough of these third world standards so I asked for my money back and checked out. The angry British girl in the front desk tried to refuse a full refund saying it was ‘against policy’. I told her it wasn’t a cancelation due to change of mind, it was due to dissatisfaction. She was unbelievably rude and hostile and reluctantly refunded some (not all) of my subsequent prepaid nights. I’ve travelled to all corners of the globe - from Kampala in Uganda to San Pedro Chile In the Atacama Desert. This is the worst hostel I’ve stayed in.

  • 4.0.Fair

    If you don't mind feeling like sleeping in a prison cell, this place is for you. Run down rooms, bad stench throughout Guesthouse and room, uncomfortable bed and pillows with stains, jail cell bars on the windows and stuck window shutter. Windows stuck open so we were stuck hearing the traffic of a Saturday night. No peaceful sleep eventhough The Guesthouse is supposed to be the peaceful accommodation. Complaied at front desk after we checked in and was promised a call and that something would be done about the stuck window, but it was ignored. Not a good stay at all. Bad stench, sleep and the discomfort from beds and pillows didnt make this a good overnight experience in Adelaide. Thank goodness hadnt booked more than one night. Wont be staying here again.

    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...)

    방이 많은게 좋음

    백팩오즈에서 체크인하고 가는겁니다. 동일한데서 운영하는데 게스트하우스가 백팩오즈보다 사람 적고 시설이 더 깔끔함. 일단 자정넘어서도 내내 시끄럽긴한데 백팩오즈보단 덜함. 그냥저냥 인사하고 들어가서 자기시간 보내기는 괜찮은 곳. 화장실에 샤워실 겸하고 각각 층마다 있고 변기3개 샤워실3개가 한 층임. 슬리퍼는 주변 마트에서 걍 대충사세요 3-4달러면 삼 현지마켓에서 안팔면 차이나타운 개가까운데 거기가시면 엄청많이팔고 일단 차이나타운이 먹을것도 많고 영업자체를 늦게까지해서 자주가게됨 단점은 딱히 없고 장점도 딱히 없음. 그냥 가격이 최대장점인데 돈값에 비춰보면 주변 호스텔중에서도 최고라고봄
