"Party central in Adelaide"

Hindley Street is Adelaides main party street, with Plenty of nightclubs, eateries and fun things to do for people looking to party. Weekends are normally pretty big when it comes to visiting Hindley Street

"Big city life but not the safest"

The Hindley Street precinct of Adelaide has undergone quite a facelift in recent time, with the emergence of a number of new modern apartment blocks. Whilst there are some pockets of good living, it is still an area that has a long way to go in terms of safe and comfortable living.

A large driver for the development of the area is the University of South Australia City Campus. This has brought a number of students to the West End, and encouraged the development of a number of cafés, restaurants, pubs and bars. There are some excellent spots for nightlife – the Vodka Bar, the Apothecary, Mojo West and the Casino on North Terrace to name just a few. However Hindley Street and the surrounds (including Light Square and West Terrace) have more than its fair share of late night events including a few well-publicised reports of early morning violence, so high vigilence is required in the area at night.

There are some good benefits to the area in terms of location. Rundle Mall and all its shops, the CBD and the cafés of Rundle Street are just a 5 minute walk away. It is just a stone’s throw to the Adelaide Train Station if you need to head out of town, and the tram line starts in the West End and will take you to the heart of the city for free or all the way to Glenelg (a beach side suburb 20 minutes out of Adelaide) quickly and conveniently.

All in all, there are some cheap apartments available, but it is an area where you need to be very careful at night.
