Backpack Oz Adelaide Reviews
Alright, not the best Apr 15, 2011
The first thing I noticed when I was looking into hostels in Adelaide was the lack of higher rated ones. So basically picked the best rated hostel on hostel world and that was backpack oz.
It's centrally located, and about a 20 minute walk to the zoo and the botanical gardens. They have social events at night, although it didn't really seem like that many of the guests were all that interested to partake. Maybe they just had a big night the night before I got there.
The rooms are big enough, but they are pretty drab and the 12 bed dorm gets a little hot at night. Plus if you have to go the toilet in the middle of the night and you are staying in this dorm, expect to wake everyone up with how loud the door is when you open it.
It was fine, but I would try a different hostel next time. No bugs though!
