8 Shakespeare International Hostel. 123 Waymouth St (150m north of Bicycle SA. free bike hire & central bus station). A good compromise between cleanliness and price, this hostel attracts an eclectic mix of long term residents and tour parties leaving early from the nearby bus station. It has a large lounge for socializing, and the kitchen is kept surprisingly clean. Will not store passports safely, so pay a bit more at the YHA a few doors down if this is a concern.
