A very successful business licensed for 68 Persons with high occupancy and a range of accommodation options.

A pivot in business direction as a result of the Covid-19 impact on short-term tourism has significantly reduced costs, made the business simpler to operate and allowed the business to continue achieving profits each month since the Australian and South Australian Governments closed borders in March, 2020.

Hostel 109 Flashpackers was established in 1980. Current owners of 7.5 years have substantially upgraded the premises and business with redevelopment of the Reception to provide an attractive and welcoming space and by incorporating the hotel standard rooms on the ground floor with a consequent increase in both revenue and profit.

Hostel 109 Flashpackers can be configured to accommodate 55 persons in 27 rooms or to focus on private accommodation. The hostel offers a range of accommodation including male, female and mixed gender dorms and single, twin and double private rooms with shared bathroom, to the newly established hotel standard queen rooms with private bathrooms. All rooms are equipped with reverse cycle air-conditioning.

Hostel 109 Flashpackers also offers an in-house travel and tour sales advisory receiving commissions on sales in reception. Excellent reviews from many industry websites, along with word of mouth referrals, contribute to consistently high occupancy rates. Hostel 109 Flashpackers is consistently rated in the Top 3 hostels in Adelaide.

Prior to April, 2020, South Australian tourism was booming. Visitors to South Australia continued to increase year on year. On the basis of data from STR, October 2019 was a record breaking month for hotels in the city. The current owners have been moving the business up-market to a slightly older “Flashpacker” demographic who are more willing to spend at higher rates for better quality accommodation.

New owners would have the opportunity to maintain the current business direction or capitalise on the considerable opportunity to further improve the standard of accommodation in the hostel section of the business to take advantage of the Flashpacker section of the market when short-term tourism activity returns.

Other opportunities present themselves in the near to medium term, with the soon to be opened 340 bed Calvary Hospital, just 200 metres from Hostel 109 Flashpackers expected to increase the number of people staying at the Hostel while undergoing procedures or supporting relatives who are doing so.

Freehold titles, premises, business, websites and domain names, all marketing materials, along with plant, equipment, furniture etc. Full financials and assets register can be provided to genuine interested parties.
