If you don't mind feeling like sleeping in a prison cell, this place is for you. Run down rooms, bad stench throughout Guesthouse and room, uncomfortable bed and pillows with stains, jail cell bars on the windows and stuck window shutter. Windows stuck open so we were stuck hearing the traffic of a Saturday night. No peaceful sleep eventhough The Guesthouse is supposed to be the peaceful accommodation. Complaied at front desk after we checked in and was promised a call and that something would be done about the stuck window, but it was ignored. Not a good stay at all. Bad stench, sleep and the discomfort from beds and pillows didnt make this a good overnight experience in Adelaide. Thank goodness hadnt booked more than one night. Wont be staying here again.

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. We pride ourselves on cleanliness and friendliness and am sorry your room had a 'bad stench' even with the window 'stuck' open. We clean the hostel thoroughly everyday. We also take security seriously which is why we have security bars on the downstairs windows. Being centrally located in the city it is hard to control the noise on a Saturday night. Good luck for the rest of your travels, The Guest House

Good value for money

Cons: The breakfast, at least porridge (i.e.oats) could be supplied
Good value for money, moderately quiet and clean. Only the provided breakfast was disappointing.
