Located Near

Right slap bang in the middle of the city. Close to absolutely everything worthwhile. Walk to the Central Bus Station for interstate buses like Greyhound or Firefly, Coles and Woolworths supermarkets, Adelaide Central Market & China Town, Museum, Art Gallery, Botanic Garden, Rundle Mall and heaps more... Seriously handy location for all travellers. And if you want to party all night long - just head towards any of the hundreds of pubs and clubs located around the city.
