About Backpack OZ

Be smart and don't just got for a hostel with the lowest rate - you get what you pay for!

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 because of the free Tuesday night BBQ dinner and daily Happy Hour ($3.50 beers)!

All rooms and common areas have A/C, and kitchens and bathrooms are cleaned daily (and we mean really clean - check the ratings)!

We have a fantastic city location - walk to cafe/pub districts, Central Market and CBD!

Our free WiFi is super fast and we have a light & bright dining & common room with big screen TV.

Our staff are super well trained and 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!
