    Girl checking me in was below par. No one showed me round to anything. At night you have to use the back stairs to get into your room, if your watching tv, but i hadnt been shown were they were. She didnt tell me anything - just gave me the keys and thats it. Bed was comfy, sheets clean, lots of crockery in kitchen, good location. Lots of onstreet parking nearby. PAYG washing machines Not allowed to stay here if you live in adelaide!! I got told, "on this one occasion ill let you, but we're for international guests only as we're an international hostel - its in the booking terms and conditiins". I live an hour outside of adelaide and needed something cheap overnight for work. Hence i wont go back again unless i take my uk drivers license

    Superb location

    Glenelg Beach Hostel is brilliantly located just a few minutes walk to the beach and a generous selection of cafes, restaurants, bars and shops. The tram stop is also so close which is a great way to get to and from the city centre. The actual hostel building is in the form of old style terrace housing with high ceilings. The on-site facilities are fine but could do with a revamp, but that would no doubt increase the price. Staff were friendly and helpful.
