    Good address/location,

    Mix up with payment, made in advance online by a relative, had tax invoice etc. and had just driven 9 hours from far north of the state to visit grandson who is terminbalkly ill in wch and did not need the run around I was given when trying to check in it was so unneccessary!Frankly all too hard - we won't do it again .

    .

    The motel was dirty,smelly. The toilet/bathroom was an embarrassment. No refrigerator or even a mirror to shave. The mirror was in between the bed and there was no access to it. There was loud noise all through the night and sleep was impossible. Should fix propoer windows and make it sound proof to some extent. It was a really a very bad experience.

    Room was spacious. Location was good.

    Room wasn't clean - bathroom was unclean. Bins hadn't been emptied and drawers still had rubbish in. Room was not secure - someone used a key to enter our room twice! Told reception who said there had been a spate of attempted burglaries. They said that the main door key would be changed at some point but showed little urgency or concern over the issue. I wouldn't stay there again because of this.

    staff are very nice. It near city , only 10 minutes walking. a bit noisy but if you travel with friends, it's a good choice. service and facility is good.

    Location to our event and facilities in room, helpful staff

    Noisy, having to drag luggage up 2 flights of stairs

    It was cheap booking online.

    All the online bookers were put in the front facing mixed dorm. No curtains and bright lights all night. No corrective action taken by hostel even after asking for a curtain to be put up.

    accommodated to my very late check in, which was fantastic!

    I arrived late to my room, and didn't have any sheets/blankets. I didn't realise bedding wasn't supplied. Was bedding extra or did I just miss out? And the curtain did nothing to reduce light coming in.

    Nothing it was filthy and would never go back. not fit for a dog.

    Every moment i was there i was sick from the filth mold and noise .

    Loved the goon lounge.

    Not enough blankets

    Was made very welcome by the Owner who was most helpful with my any and every enquiry.

    It had a bed in a room.

    The "5pm to 5am" dance club outside my window. And the lack of working lighting. But It was cheap and the room I booked was flooded so they moved me into a six bed dorm by myself for no extra charge (as they should). Since I was there for 5 hours it was all good.

  • Single

    Staff was very friendly and helpful; entire place was very clean.

    Didn't matter much, as the restrooms were nearby - but the description incorrectly states the room would have a washbowl.

  • Single

    It was in the cbd of Adelaide and therefore convenient for being picked up for a ten day trip to Alice Springs.

    Thought 80 dollars was very expensive for a very basic room. The toilet cistern had a fault and I was moved to dismantle it in order to stop the constant flow of water. A tap also dripped and I put something in the plughole to muffle the noise. Which would have been fine if I had only paid 20 dollars for the room but not for 80 dollars. Thought breakfast was included but no sign of how or where and leaving early in the morning anyway. Thereofre a good experience ass a talking point but not for comfort! Couple of blokes sitting on settees outside the room drinking and talking until quite late too so not exactly peaceful and annoying since there was a sitting area for general use inside!

    Good location and cheap(ish).

    Dirty, decrepit, noisy, uncomfortable. Cheap but awful.
