"Staff were really friendly me helpful. The door code to get in late at night was useful. Also, really nice lounge area/kitchen even though I was only there for 1 night and didn't cook, looked like a quality kitchen."

Right slap bang in the middle of the city. Close to absolutely everything worthwhile. Walk to the bus station for interastate buses like greyhound, Coles and Woolworths supermarkets , Adelaide Central Market and China Town, museum, art gallery, botanic gardens, Rundle Mall and heaps more. Seriously handy location for all travellers. And if you want to party all night long just head towards any of the hundreds of pubs and clubs located around the city.
