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.
