A towel should be provided for dorm stayers, not very good at informing where all areas are and what facilities the place offers. Didn't know where I could smoke as well as where I could do laundry or make a tea. No one was around at the time I needed to know these.

Absence of reception staff and printed information about how to book in/check out/get help, left me confused when I arrived until an off-duty employee (?) turned back when he saw me outside, wondering what on earth I should do (because no-one answered either of the phone numbers provided). He gave much-needed assistance initially, otherwise I would have been very worried. Place is basic but quite clean - which is all I needed for a brief overnight stay. Couldn't get the television in the room to work, and (again), nothing printed in the way of information/instructions to guide me, let alone a 'real person' to ask about it. I'd stay there again, but only because I finally know how things work there now - except for checking out woth no staff.

Port Adelaide Backpackers

Pros: Good location. Clean bathrooms and free wifi.
Cons: There should be physical staff at reception. Even if there is a bell to press and they could come down to assist.
Location: Dominos pizza right across the road is great. Close to the river and historic building and museums.
I could not believe that to check in I had to talk to someone on Skype at their "virtual reception desk". It was hard to understand the person on the other end, extremely offputting and in short a very unfriendly process. If you needed something like a towel, or bowls and cutlery the virtual receptionist can't help you!

Pros: Air Conditioning, as it was a very hot night in Adelaide!
Cons: Not an ensuite, this was not really a problem and had I read what I had booked more thoroughly I would have realised this!
Location: Accessible
Facilities: Basic; Value: Reasonable; Service: Polite; Cleanliness: Clean; It was great that there was parking nearby!
