I was traveling alone and staying in the girls dorm for 3 days. The room was very clean and tidy. It's a good place to make new friends, and the BBQ dinner on Tuesday night was awesome~~ Staff are nice and the location is good- near to adelaide central market and victoria square. Highly recommend~~~

I've never stayed a place like this before, the room, kitchen and the public area were always clean. Free BBQ on every Tue was awesome, and the killer pool was nice and fun. Staffs are always friendly as well. Well, a place to call ' HOME' for me in Australia.

To be honest this is my first time to live in backpacker hostel, and that was fantastic. OZ is quite small, but everyone here is nice, especially stuffs, they are really kind, and concern everything about customers. Another things, free breakfast is awesome, free Tuesday BBQ dinner is awesome, free internet everywhere and free pool table are awesome... I booked a private room for my first hostel experience, and that was really clean and tidy room, and so does the public bath room and toilet. Thanks OZ and OZ's stuffs, if I get chance to go to Adelaide next time, I will surely live there again.

I realize that you do not have to pay much to be here and the wifi is free(only works well in the public area) . A small light per bunk would have been nice especially for those night time trips to the WC. Two electric outlets for 6 people is not enough. Although it was quiet there and they did have air conditioning. There was a full kitchen , pool table and large TV in the lounge area.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Tours would pick you up and drop you off at the hostel. The rooms are small for six people with no place to put you stuff. Not enough electric outlets. Only one main light so when that was out you were in the dark!

Friendly staff

Backpack Oz is 10-15min walk away from Chinatown. If you are going to the other part of the city basically you have to rely on 99C, the free lop bus service. What impressed me the most was the nice and friendly staff during my stay at Backpack Oz. They did clean up everyday and the room and public areas are clean and tidy, which provided a pleasant environment to all the travelers.
