“Best Backpacker stay in Coober Pedy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

This is the best place to stay for backpackers in Coober Pedy!
Low price for as much underground stay as you can get in town.
The owner is very friendly and helpful and can help you organize everything you want to do in and around Coober Pedy.

Stayed August 2012, travelled as a couple

If you don't have to stay in this accommodation, don't. Hostel style cave with basic basic facilities - a steel bed, flimsy old sheets, very old thin pillows, and only an old curtain for privacy in each cell. We called it Alcatraz down under. The ablutions were poorly cleaned, the light bulds in several of the cells did not work, and the code to access the cave was known by other tour guides so we did not feel our possesions were secure.

Unless you are on a bus tour I suspect you would not stay here, and that would be a good thing.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else in a motel in Coober Pedy
