Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
All staffs were full of kindness and storing a luggage service was available with that made me happy. However, the bathroom was disgusting! This hotel is with the balcony of a beer bar so that customers who just have a fun of drinking can get inside anytime even when we are taking shower. Actually, some of them had seen my naked by accident there was no any private!!

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Girl checking me in was below par. No one showed me round to anything. At night you have to use the back stairs to get into your room, if your watching tv, but i hadnt been shown were they were. She didnt tell me anything - just gave me the keys and thats it. Bed was comfy, sheets clean, lots of crockery in kitchen, good location. Lots of onstreet parking nearby. PAYG washing machines Not allowed to stay here if you live in adelaide!! I got told, "on this one occasion ill let you, but we're for international guests only as we're an international hostel - its in the booking terms and conditiins". I live an hour outside of adelaide and needed something cheap overnight for work. Hence i wont go back again unless i take my uk drivers license
