Appart from the before mentioned rule to only get a cooking pot after leaving you room key as an deposit its a nice party hostel in an excellent location. Alcohol is strictly forbidden in all rooms though and can only be bought from the bar (which is a bummer if you're on a budget but brings people together I guess). Only thing that struck me as really odd was that they wanted the Credit Cards Security number on paper - which then lies around on the counter - HORRIBLE DATA SECURITY!

This is a party hostel, pure and simple. Needs a real good clean and upgrade across the board. Wifi never worked, my room was double booked for one of the evenings and I arrived back to someone new in bed and having to go down and sort out new sheets etc., for myself. Unfortunately it doesn't look like you have too many other options in town, so might just need to bite the bullet if you're staying in central Darwin!

Requested CVV number when checking in which isn't really acceptable. Beds really uncomfortable. Plates and cutlery have to be bought from the hostel for $1.50, which is very annoying - we only wanted to use plates for one night but there was no option except eating out of old saucepans. Good wifi, nice size pool, great location for Darwin.

I stayed one night and it was great. The only downsides were the amount of plug ins in my room and the lack of counter space in bathroom. There was 1 outlet in room and only sinks in bathroom. The rest was great
