The Don Bosco Youth Hostel was opened by the Catholic Church in conjunction with the Salesians of Don Bosco in 1999. It was located in the former premises of Boys Town which had been renovated. The Hostel provided accommodation for young men and women, mainly from country South Australia, who had left high school and were studying or working in Adelaide. It closed in 2010.
