About Backpack Oz

Are you looking for a hostel:

- where you feel welcome to relax and just hang out if you want a break?
- where there are activities so you can meet people and make new friends?
- where you don’t feel as though you are putting your hand in your pocket every 5 minutes
- where the staff are happy to give you free advice about what to do in Adelaide (not just sell you an expensive tour)


Backpack Oz is a family owned and operated business that enjoys a great reputation - and not just from the free Wednesday night dinner and daily happy hour with $3.50 beers!


* All rooms and common areas have A/C
* Kitchens and bathrooms cleaned daily (and we mean really clean - check the ratings!)
* Fantastic city location - walk to premier café/pub districts, Central Market and CBD
* Free WiFi 24/7
* Free pick ups/drop offs to bus and train station (not airport)
* Free quality Wednesday BBQ dinner – not just a sausage in white bread!
* Well trained and helpful staff who really want you to enjoy your stay and make the most of Adelaide

We hope you choose to stay with us and leave with fond memories of both Adelaide and Backpack Oz.

Cheers!
Sam, Penny & Tom Twelftree
