Hostel Stories is a research project aimed at finding out more about migrant hostels, reception centres and camps in South Australia.

This project seeks to remedy the gaps in our historical record about the hostels by bringing together the memories of former residents with extensive archival research to compile the most comprehensive information to date on temporary migrant accommodation in South Australia.
