    Great location and friendly staff. Booked to stay extra nights than planned. After doing a tour from Alice spring to Darwin we arrived at this hostel. Luckily alot of the people on the tour stayed at the same hostel. We didn't really meet any new people in the hostel. The bathrooms and rooms are cleaned everyday. Rooms are small but they have big lockers that can fit a backpack in so if you have your own padlock your belongings are secured all the time. 4Aud a day for wifi.
