“good times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2010

I have been staying at shakespeare backpackers for about five months. I have enjoyed every day of it. Great staff good times nice people good balcony to sit down and have 1 drink that leads always to many. I would recommed for people to stay here and the location is the key. We are like one big family.

The location was great and the staff are amazingly helpful & friendly. This backpaker is perfectly located regarding Adelaide's transport facilities : 3m far from the airport pickup or the central bus station. It is a good place to lay your head down. Kithcen was very clean and has good facilities. Lots of seating area in lounge with big HD TV was good, showing movies. Comfy mattress and plenty of space in the room. Bathrooms were very clean compare to other hostels. I saw atleast they have trained cleaners who clean. 24hr staff. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and it was great. What more to say?

JUST AWFUL ! Unluckily I had to stay there for 3 nights as all the other backpackers were fully booked. In this time our room never got cleaned. I slept in a 19 square meter room with 8 other girls, it was suffocating. The light didn´t work, and we complained again and again, but it took two days for somebody to put in a new neon tube. The window was broken, and has been for a long time judging by the dirt on the glass panel. The dirt on the carpets is putting you off. Our room never got cleaned, but they emptied the rubbish bin (because they wanted the bottle refund). The couches, which once have been yellow, were covered in dirt. There is a guy working there, who is very aggressive and always bad humoured. People like this shouldn´t run a backpacker. The website is a big lie. NEVER AGAIN !
