Great Place to Stay

Location, Friends, and Atmosphere
When I got off the J1 and made my way to the hostel, I didn't know what to expect. Low and Behold, I had the greatest time of my life in Our House and in Adelaide. One of the best parts about staying here is location, location, location!! You're right by public transport, the Rundle Mall, restaurants, clubs, fitness name it!!!!! The people you meet there, whether staff or travelers are the nicest you will ever encounter! The only complaint I have is the mattresses were a bit rough and the chances of hot nights with little to no AC. Other than that if I plan on returning to Adelaide this will be the place I'll return to! Thanks Our House!!

Smells like sewer, stiff mattresses, nice staff

Location, location, location
The staff are great but the joint stinks like poo and disinfectant. Lockers are tiny and beds are rock hard and have no plastic covers. Happy I didn't get bed bugs.

Good place to stay in Adelaide CBD

Central location, good value and additional services
Second stay at OHB. Best option for CBD accommodation. Happy with the shared room. Early check-in acceptance. Clean toilet and shower room. Comfortable lounge with Foxtel. In fact, I did enjoy a number of WC Football matches.

Adventurous Adelaide

the only best thing is its near city and restaurants
This is one of the worse backpackers hostel with sofa/bed have mites or bugs and the place is very run down. All tenants are either working in the streets or they are hobos. very scary experience, should have paid a bit more for slightly better hostel.

Location unbeatable

central location yet quiet; good kitchen
Prime spot close to most attractions but in a back street so quiet. Not enough bathrooms (especially main floor) for if the place were full. Lots of kitchen space and good facilities; breakfast (basic toast and coffee) a nice extra.
