"Staff were really friendly me helpful. The door code to get in late at night was useful. Also, really nice lounge area/kitchen even though I was only there for 1 night and didn't cook, looked like a quality kitchen."

Liked: The rooms are really clean and the staff are very nice as well. Clean and spacious showers upstairs and lots of information available for traveling.

Disliked: The kitchen doesn't always have enough utensils to use, which is quite annoying sometimes. The hostel customers sometimes don't clean the dishes after their meals, making the area a bit dirty. There was an incident involving someone stealing a wallet from another girl in my room, but I guess it's just abnormal. The room actually has a locker which not every single hostel has.

Liked: Easy to find, my first time in Adelaide! Inexpensive to stay. Nice staff, helpful. A great place next door too, to hire a bicycle for free all day! Close proximity to CBD shops, and Rundle Mall - Coles, Woolworths, Kmart, Myer, and heaps of other shops. Art Gallery, Museum, State Library are not far from Shakespeare either. Lockers in room. Good mattress on bunk bed.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike.

Liked: The television room is large and comfortable with couches, books and magazines. It is for this room that I came to Shakespeare's a second time.

Disliked: It's filthy! The kitchen is cleaned every night but by 10:00 am there is food and dishes and mess everywhere! There seems to be very little discipline or incentive among many of the guests to be tidy; perhaps it's the long-term residents setting a bad example?

Liked: J'ai passé un excellent séjour dans cette auberge très chaleureuse, familiale, propre ... L'équipe est très accueillante et disponible. Je les remercie pour leur professionnalisme ! L'un des membres de l'équipe a passé environ une heure et demie au téléphone pour organiser un séjour à Kangaroo Island qui a été extra ! Propreté, sécurité ... Elle figure parmi mes préférées ! N'hésitez pas !
