This is a party-hostel, beware of it if you're looking for backpacker-like calm and peaceful stay! It it loud, very busy and crowded with drunk jerks. The personell seems to be overstrained and is sometimes rude. You feel like a number. Everything is regimented... You even need to lodge a deposit for getting a pot, plate, knife, fork for use in the kitchen... what a silly rule! Furthermore the signs that tell you everywhere what to do and not a absolutly crazy and annoying!


The best place to stay in Darwin! If you like to have a laugh and meet new people! Everytime I go to darwin I stay here loved it everytime! :-)
