Good accommodation
It was really good except that the guys who had shared the room with me, they messed up the room. Free breakfast was good I loved pancakes!! And also socializing free dinging as well:)

A great hostel!
This is the type of place that reminds me of why staying in a hostel can be a delight. The people working there are incredibly friendly and helpful, Dan and Augustine in particular. Tequila Sunrise is a place where people meet new people, hang out, and just in general be a nice kind of small community. There are repairs going on and other things in the works to make it an even better place. The location is great as it is close to shopping, restaurants, bars, and the tram without being so close to get the noise of any of them. If you are looking for a hostel, I recommend this one!

A good and economic hostel
The location of the hotel is excellent, as it is close to the Glenelg tram station of Pirie St and the Adelaide Firefly express bus station. It was also only 10 mins walk from the hostel to the Adelaide train station. I stayed at the male dorm with 8 beds. The bathroom and the kitchen was generally clean, and there was not much noise at night. The bedroom I stayed in was comfortable as there were two huge fans reducing the heat in summer nights. Every day there was a free pancake breakfast at 8 - 9am, which was quite nice as there were not many good breakfast options in the Adelaide CBD. The wifi was great as it did not have any MB limits (as I remembered YHA imposes a limit of 250MB for free wifi).
