    Darwin Hostel is my choice of hostel of all in Darwin, yes it needs renovations and a bit more cleaning ,but keep in mind the turn over of staff in Darwin is high , I loved the good vibes, chilled & happy🍸just what I'm looking for from a backpackers ☺️ the pool was refreshing & not overly chlorinated👍🏼 beds were comfy but does kinda depend on your luck a bit , they look like they are swapping to new mattresses but haven't done all yet 🤷🏽‍♀️ Liam was really nice,very helpful & insightful 😁

    Nice hostel with lots of outdoor hangouts. Found it very chill, and always there was someone cleaning. Would stay here again.

    Nice place, and good air conditioned rooms for a cheap price. Kitchen wasn't clean and neither the toilets. Good place for just a few days in Darwin though.

    I think the reviews for this hostel are pretty generous, I only stayed one night but probably would have changed hostels if I had a longer booking. The manager was lovely but the facilities were not very clean/well maintained & more significantly in my dorm there were 2 people who had been living there for 2+ years, it felt like I'd walked into someones bedroom as they had a lot of belongings and I felt like I was encroaching on their space. Really weird vibes, wouldn't stay again.

    The hostel its self is fine… just should be advertised better that you can’t have any guests here under any circumstances; not even during the day. Also just little things were disappointing - like no bin in our room and the gates are locked pretty early but staff didn’t think to let us know or give us the code. We got stuck having to jump the fence on our first night.

    The location is good and the backpackers that live there are friendly but it is a really dirty hostel. I don´t really feel confortable there because I found always all the areas always dirty: kitchen, rooms, toilets, common areas... I think that the price is too high considering the level of cleanliness.

    I think the reviews and rating are pretty generous for this hostel. Wasn’t very clean or well maintained. Staff member checking me in wasn’t overly friendly or helpful and seemed unenthusiastic. Location was decent with shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. I wouldn’t stay again if I visit Darwin in the future.
