Liked: I had no basis to rate this hostel as this was my first time using a hostel. However, it exceeded my expectations of what a hostel would be like. This was proven to be the case as i'm now staying at the Banyan View Lodge in Darwin and the Adelaide YHA beats it hands down. I'd happiy stay in Adlaide YHA again.

Disliked: Jonathan left no negative feedback.

Liked: Great atmosphere, can be social or quiet easily. Clean, decent location, free pancakes!

Disliked: As with so many Aussie hostels, wifi costs, and more power points or double adaptors would go a Long way.

Liked: The kitchens and dining hall is big and roomy. Nice couches to sit and chat. Clean bed sheets.

Disliked: The air con can only be switched on by the reception, which is ok for energy saving purposes but the windows do not have fly screens. Mosquitoes ended up flying in throughout the night and i got woken up in the middle of the night with my hands and legs all itchy from mosquito bites. It got abit stuffy in the night as well.
