    Great hostel, awesome staff This is the second time I’ve stayed in this hostel and it hasn’t disappointed both times, the only thing I would change is the kitchen it needs more storage and updating but that’s just my preference it’s still fine

    The hostel is centrally located and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Unfortunately when I got into my 4 dorm room (the only one staying) it didn't seemed that it was cleaned before as there was stuff and hair laying everywhere on the ground and the lookers and sink was also dirty. Kitchen has everything that is needed-however a few more fresh towels would be nice.

    Place was filthy - rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, hallways. Never any toilet paper. Full of long termers and locals that gave it a creepy vibe. Tiny rooms. Loud music from bar next door went till late every night and came straight through the louvre windows. Plus side - the staff were lovely!

    Dirtiest, most rundown hostel I've ever stayed in. Mouldy walls, broken switches, cobwebs, used bowls with food rotting, grubby floors and surfaces and lumpy mattresses with springs exposed. My room smelt like mould, body odour. I got 'upgraded' and the private room wasn't any better. I ended up going out and picking up a local so I didn't have to stay in that room for the second night. I'm regular in Darwin and will not be booking there again.

    Bad wifi. Noisy. Not atmosphere at all. Lots of long term and locals living there. Packed rooms. Coachrakes all over the place. Toilets very dirty. There are lots of hostels in the same street, you can get a way better deal for the same price. Wouldn't ever go back again.

    Die leute waren überwiegend älter und seltsam. Alles war nicht sauber bis auf das Bad. Wir wollten gar nicht in der Küche kochen. Im zimmer war man auch nur zum schlafen.
