YHA Adelaide Noisy and Unfriendly

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 18, 2007

I stayed at the YHA in Adelaide last year. The staff were completely disinterested, unhelpful and unable to assist with anything including travel arrangements, suggestions for city sightseeing etc. The room was an adequate size but the hostel was terribly noisy. The whole place looked like it could do with a good coat of paint, carpets were dirty and hostel was rather gloomy. However it was the best of the YHA's that I stayed at in Australia which doesnt say much for the YHA's in Australia in general.

Unique Quality: Facilities were poor.

This YHA hostel is one of the best I have ever stayed at. Great kitchen and eating/lounge area. You can also rent movies or surf the Internet.

Rooms are comfortable, clean and have lockers. Bathrooms were a good size, functional and always clean.

I stayed at the YHA on my last trip to Adelaide and can't complain.
It's very well equipped with a large kitchen and community areas. There are a lot of internet terminals, enough washing machines and dryers, never had to wait for any of these.
The rooms are reasonably large, I stayed in a 6-bed dorm which was ok. But don't forget your earplugs, walls are rather thin!

Central location, friendly service, clean facility

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

I last stayed at the Adelaide Central YHA in November 2001, so if anyone has any updated information, please share with us. When I stayed there, I found the location to be quite convenient--just one block from the bus station; close to Chinatown and pretty good restaurants on Gouger Street. I didn't care much for the environment on nearby Hindley Street, hanging out more on Rundle Street, with the cool, hip shops, restaurants and great arthouse cinemas. Booking is convenient--best to do ahead of time, and online, as the hostel fills up almost every night during busy seasons. I would recommend it--it's one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in.

Unique Quality: I liked the Adelaide Central YHA because the staff was helpful, the facilities very modern and clean; great storage space (you get your own good-size locker within your room, and they have lockers for storage if you have to check out and stow your stuff for a few hours. The kitchen was large, and they showed movies in the big entertainment room at least every other night. Onsite laundry facilities were quite convenient; Internet access was good and quite cheap, too. The only "tip" I would recommend is to try to snag a bottom bunk. The bunk beds, although new, had these skinny metal ladders up to the top bunks. Unless you were wearing shoes or had pretty thick soles, it was not very comfortable having to climb up the ladders (especially in the dark if you came in late.)

I'm rather pleased with my stay with YHA. This budget 2 storey hostel is perfect for students or backpackers. Not rowdy crowds. Soothing and nice ambience indeed. Located about 5 mins walk to city shopping mall and central market.What's more....about 3 mins walk to central bus station. Peerrfect!

Unique Quality: The commual kitchen has all the necessary cockery wares and fridges provided. Hence, one can save money rather than eating out all the time! Other facilities include: daily movie screening starting at 8pm, 2 pool tables, plenty of sofas, foxtel tv room, reading corners, public coin phones at every level, vending machines. Local tour infomation can be obtained at the reception. Internet cafe are also avalible till 11pm.

Directions: 108, Waymouth street

You can't beat the YHA

by written on February 27, 2003

While there are many backpacker hostels here as in all Australian cities, with the YHA you know you are getting a good standard, with all the usual mod cons and a friendly atmosphere, run professionally and best of all they don't charge you lots of money when you lose your swipe card.

Unique Quality: Can be booked online, has internet , 24 hour access and republican staff who are easily wound up when you remind them of the referendum result.

Directions: At the West end of Waymouth street by Light Square
