    Loved my stay here. Nice chilled out vibes in the hostel, quite a few people staying longer term but everyone I met was super friendly, would stay again for sure. Also way cleaner than MOM up the road

    I only stayed for one night but I liked this hostel, it was chill as, seemed like a decent group staying there at the time, facilities were good & clean, Max from front counter was super nice and accommodating. Was a bit of a trek to the waterfront but other than that seemed like a good location, security was good as you needed codes to get into front gate. Definitely not a party hostel but thats exactly what I wanted. Have a few more Darwin trips planned and will definitely be staying again.

    They were helpful in facilitating a late night check in - our plane arrived after midnight. Only annoyance was we'd booked a twin room and arrived to find a double bed. Mild apology was offered the following morning.

    This place is working hostel vibes, if you're going to Darwin solo and/or to party this is not the place for you. That has it's positives because you can get a great night's sleep which is awesome if you're in Darwin for adventure! My sheets, mattress and pillow were probably the cleanest I've ever had in a hostel and the bed was comfortable despite rattling furiously when I moved! Bathrooms need some work!

    We are 2 not young women. When we arrived we were told that the hostel was for under 65’s. Apparently that criteria is in the fine print, although I could not find it. We had booked a twin room and we were shown to a room with a double bed. When I pointed that out the host started shouting at me for complaining. We felt very unwelcome. He did get a mattress on the floor for me. The room was dark and dingy and the air con noisy. We could hear other guests, although not overly noisy.

    Drink banged on door at 4am. Got into my room bleeding and fell out of top bunk bed bleeding on floor comatose. Then he took curtains and used as a blanket bag couldn't sleep through that. Also none of the electric cook tops in kitchen working gas not connected to bbq. Too many people have alcoholic people leaving there also too many smokers.

    The room I stayed in was a private room that looked like the sheets had not been washed, it was tiny for a ridiculously expensive price. When I arrived there was no one to let me in even though there were numbers left to call no one answered. There was a lot of commotion that happened inside and outside that made feel extremely unsafe, when notifying one of the managers they said police had been called but no one ever turned up. Really disappointing for the amount I paid for this private.
