Having operated hostels for 12 years in Ireland, I have my own perspective on hostels and this was a very good one. They even helped me recover a power converter I left behind and got it to me as my travels continued. If you want fast internet be sure to purchase it, they have slower for free. Also, I find it a bit sad that at this and other hostels there are more people enamored with their internet connections, then the international connections they could make with the people around them.

Das WLan ist stark verbesserungswürdig. Das Gratis-Wifi musste täglich mit einem neuen Passwort freischalten werden. Ferner gab es in den Zimmern kein Empfang. Es gab noch ein kostenpflichtiges Highspeednetzt. Ich finde solche Angebote nicht unbedingt toll.

Bien situé, personnel aimable et compétent. Propre, grande salle à vivre et grande cuisine. Reflet de la ville d'Adelaide: agréable et bon enfant.
