Very good accommodation for the price
location, staff, worth the money
The location is very good, around 5 minutes to/from the bus station. Free dinner on Tuesday (didn't try it though, came back too late). Free use of bike. Staff is very friendly and helpful when you need them. If you're looking for a budget accommodation, this is the place you're looking for.

Nice, clean and friendly hostel
free BBQ night, friendly staffs and nice vibe!
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.

Clean, Comfortable, Nice staff
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~~~

Amazing hostel
Customer service, facilities
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.

A good budget hostel
clean rooms, air conditioner room and free simple breakfast
We were placed at the guesthouse not the hostel, room is quite big for hostel level but the free wifi is only available at hostel
