    I stayed in a few hostels in Darwin and this was my preferred one; you get a great free breakfast and the common areas are pretty nice. My main complaint: most of the bunk beds don't have ladders to the top bunk - surely this is really unsafe??? I'd also love it if they could get more than one power outlet per room, but to be fair this seems to be a problem in most Australian hostels.

    Had a pleasant experience at DUH. Small family run hostel that they are currently working diligently to upgrade. Free bbq and breakfast were a plus! Keep up the good work 😊

    Very Good

    Hostel is quite small, room was very small for 6 people, and there is no storage or lockers, so everyone’s luggage is all over the floor. My bed had no ladder so was quite hard to get onto, and the mattress was very thin, so you could feel the bed frame. The outside area at the back is cool, with plenty of seating and places to chill. The kitchen facilities are pretty good with lots of fridge space.

    The location of this hostel was good; relatively close to the beach and the lagoon and the city centre. The staff was friendly, although they did not have such a simple thing as a band aid. The showers and toilets were new as it seemed, but weren’t cleaned properly as there was a bloody pad for multiple days left in one of the showers. The laundry was for free, which is great. They also had a nice free breakfast everyday and a free BBQ sometimes.

    Despite comments of having refurbished all areas, they still are not great. Kitchen is dirty and small. We booked for 4 nights but only stayed 1 as the room was unbearably hot. Being in Darwin aircon is to be expected but this place does not and smells so bad throughout.

    In a few words: disgusting, unwelcoming, unfriendly and very unhygienic. Never again.
