    Clean and comfortable. Must have caught the owner on a 'non-stimulant' day as trying to get him to comprehend I was wanting to check in was an interesting exercise!

    A Unique Experience

    There are a number of hotels in Coober Pedy that have been dug out so that you live underground. The Radeka is a great example. We had a twin room that was 6.5m underground. When we arrived Coober Pedy was in flood (this only happens once a decade) and we had to drive through 1 metre of water to reach the hotel. Fortunately it was completely dry. The Radeka is a back packers with shared rooms and dorms. It is clean, has plenty of showers and a bar. It is in the middle of town so there are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby.

    Being underground there was little air movement but you quickly got used to it. It was a unique experience and we loved it.

    Room Tip: Choose and underground room to get the true experience.

    Living in an underground cave is pretty cool, if only I could stop myself from storing food in my cheeks ready for the winter- it pays to be prepared!

    The hostel is nice enough, but the old fella working the reception turns into a right knob when you ask him any question (only answer: okay, just go somewhere else). Okay for 1 night.

Von Adelaide ging es nämlich in einem Rutsch bis nach Coober Pedy und schon nach dem wir Port Augusta passiert und noch einmal aufgetankt hatten, fühlte ich mich wie am Arsch der Welt.. …

    ... down some delicious free pizza? Underground, of course! Apart from a mouse incident in Imelda's room, it was just like sleeping anywhere else! Since Coober Pedy is the opal capital of the world (pretty sure about that one), we spent the next morning learning about opal mining and even trying our luck in the public noodling area. I've got mine stashed away somewhere safe. I can't remember where, so definitely super safe. Too bad I wasn't as lucky as a tourist ...
