Great deal for the price - rooms and bathroom really clean! Unsure about the aircon in the room that can't be adjusted at all though.., Has an issue with the booking as two of us were booked in for one night however one needed the stay extending, we had called up prior to arrange this and it hadn't been done. When we arrived tried to sort this out and found the guy on reception extremely patronising.

Kitchen was a mess: half the cookers didn't work or you couldn't figure out how to make them work. A simple sign would have helped, but nothing. Rooms had to be kept at 21° cause otherwise they go damp. Ok. But blankets would have been nice. I was freezing even with an extra sheet. Bathroom and kitchen on the other hand were a sauna. Staff was somewhat friendly but didn't seem to care much.

Wow we're do I start what a disgusting hostel I wouldn't even let my dog sleep there! Doors are insecure the place is riddled with damp and mould the walls are dripping with condensation the staff are unhelpful to not allot of knowledge about the area! I met a girl the day I checked out who also felt the same. The showers are useless and the water pressure is really low . This place is in desperate need of a revamp I've taken photos which I'll also be adding to trip adviser!

Great location and good atmosphere. The bed was terrible. The beds have vinyl mattresses and the vinyl is cracked - shocking!!!! Will not stay here again

The hostel in general is quite good (location, pool/bar, staff) but my room was uncomfortable for 2 reasons, the old plastic-covered mattresses and the strange air-conditioning which made everything in the room damp including the walls and carpet, even though i kept it between 21-24deg as i was told to at check in.

Perfectly situated for exploring Darwin, and close to bars/pubs without being noisy. Room was clean, and cleaned every day, including new towels. Staff were helpful and friendly. Pools were good addition. Good rooftop area.

positive: staff are friendly and helpful with convenient location. there are lockers in the room, can hire hairdryers at reception, female section on 3/F negative: the water is not strong enough for showers (just one is ok) on 3/F and need to borrow cultery at reception, just two plugs in sharedrooms which is not enough. still value for money, recommended

Really nice hostel

I really liked this place. I meet some great people here and the facilities are great with a fun bar and pool area. It's a very lively hostel so expect that and Darwin is party central (sick in the girls bathroom sink as an example). The staff on the front desk were really helpful during my stay and they know loads about tours in the area. They will book them for you.

In every room there should be more energy plugs, as for a room with 4 beds there's only 2, and because there're so close sometimes only one fits. The rooms are also too cold. I understand the reason of the condensation, but is too cold comparing with the outside temperature.

Well organized. I would stay there again. Worth the money - decent facilities - staff are helpful. Weekends can be noisy but fine, just added entertainment

Great vibes on the balcony. Bar and pool setup was great, with ample opportunity to make new friends or chill out on your own. Huge kitchen. Toilets smelt like public toilets though.

Good atmosphere for nights out, staff friendly and helpful. Location right in the middle so very good. Tours and days out easily booked. Despite the positives, the room and bathroom facilities weren't the greatest. In a modern era, two plugs between 6 people isn't good enough. When debt ridden Asian countries can offer plug per person, I'm pretty sure you can with a bit of work. Bathroom one morning all three toilets were covered in sick and unable to be used, not your fault but still not nice.

It is placed on the main street of Darwin where are a lot of shops, pubs and restaurants. But it is not too loud to sleep in the night. You get a card as a key to open your room. The bathrooms are very clean and there are free hair dryers.

Rooms kind of austere but outside rooftop bar good.

About 15 min walk from the main city area. Welcoming staff. Good communal areas and washing facilities. Can purchase meals and drinks in the evening.

The room is not mopped and the bed sheet is not changed everytime a new person is coming. I think they should clean it. Being cheap should not mean being dirty.
