    The room was very small but comfortable bunk beds. The hostel was VERY small and the people were all very friendly. Due to the fact I was there during renovation I got cheaper rates and some of the facilities were being built still. Great location and everything in Darwin is within walking distance. Receptionist very casual and flexible about checking out.

    I only stayed one night but my stay was enjoyable. The staff are super helpful and the location is pretty perfect. The rooms are small but the beds are comfortable. Free WiFi and free laundry, what more can you ask for. I would definitely recommend staying.

    “Newly renovated” is misleading—they are CURRENTLY renovating with you inside. The place is a shambles, paint & tools lying around for days, bathrooms half-constructed. The outdoor area is alright but doesn’t have its advertised jacuzzi (was told it would be “ready in a few days”, never happened). The worst was the dorm—the AC barely works & ceiling fan was broken so top bunks were SWELTERING. It’s nextdoor to a bar too, & even with earplugs I couldn’t sleep. The bunks didn’t even have ladders.

    The room itself was quite dirty and smelled of mold and we were not given sheets until late at night. The kitchen was poorly stocked and was always dirty. The showers were either being renovated or were not good and the toilets were not very clean. Overall, the entire set up of the hostel is quite poor and I was disappointed. I left early because of how gross I thought it was. It was one of the worst hostels I have stayed at in my travels. The only positive is Dominos is right beside the hostel.

    This place was gross. I've stayed in many hostels and this was by far the worst. It was dirty and unorganized. There were piles of random s*** everywhere and a ton of clutter. The property was open at the most random times of the day. There was no real customer service. I lost the padlock pin and could look through the window and see the list of all the padlock combinations to let myself back in which is unsafe. I wouldn't stay here again unless I had absolutely no choice.
