                Typical party hostel in town centre”

                We just stayed one night and choose this for the location. Booked a double room which was barebones - just the beds and nothing else. Particularly annoying was lack of a plug socket so you can't recharge your mobile too. However, people seemed to have fun at the common area so should be ok for backpackers.

                The place is 12 minutes to Adelaide bus station and Chinatown. The place is clean. Has a very early free breakfast and check out at 6am so that you could catch any early bus or Tours.
