If I had known that my room was going to be directly across from the reception desk, I'd have paid an extra $15 and stayed in a hotel instead of here. I booked this accommodation so that I could enjoy a rare night out with friends in the city (I currently reside three hours from the city) and was woken at 8am by a rather loud phone conversation courtesy of the reception staff. In addition, when I arrived at 14:30 on the Saturday, there was nobody there to check me in, and if there were showers that I was able to use, they were not made known to me, nor was a towel provided... I've never stayed in a backpackers where you didn't even get a towel... I paid less in a Sydney backpackers for a similar room, but I still got a towel! I've stayed in backpackers all over Australia for similar room rates, I've never once been disappointed like this.

Thank you for the review, and we're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay stay with us, and we apologize about the noise, I certainly agree that should not have happened and we will speak to the staff member on duty at the time. Unfortuantely as for your arrival time, without directly contacting us of an early arrival, our normal Check-In time, is clearly listed as 5pm. As for showers, there certainly are communal shower, with signage showing where they are just as you go up the stairs. As for a towel, we do certainly provide them for a $2 cleaning fee, all you had to do was ask. We do hope to make it up to you at some point in the future, otherwise we hope for better future travels for yourself. Thanks for staying with us @ My Place & Adelaide Backpackers
