    Good location, walking distance to local attractions and shopping. Central base without breaking the budget. Close to hire vehicles and tour options to explore attractions outside of Darwin.

    We had a great stay at Down Under Harriet. The room was spacious and clean. The toilets and showers were clean as well. The indoor kitchen upstairs was a little messy and the fridges were over full. But that should not unsettle a hard-boiled backpacker. ;-) To the person writing the replies for the hostel here: It does not make a good impression when the hostel writes salty comments on non-positive reviews. We would recommend to stay friendly and businesslike - for your own sake.

    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 😊

    Nice place to stay, and free laundry which is always a plus. The people here are all very relaxed and chill it's just a nice place to stay. Also good kitchens and also has a freezer which is nice for when it get hot so you can keep ice cream and water in it. However the upstairs showers didn't have hot water in them, but the downstairs showers do and are very good.

    Very Good

    I wasn't sure what to expect given the owners unprofessional responses (it's very unique), but the place was recommended. Everything was clean, it was a nice place in a good location. I thought being emailed the details was a nice touch Only 2 toilets and 2 showers was a bit of a struggle, but again they were in good working order and clean. Code system to get in means people bang on the doors at 3am. That's not the hostels fault but for a small place, I think a normal key would be better.

    Decent place to stay for a few nights. Good atmosphere due to the smaller size of the hostel. Free laundry is amazing. Cleanliness and overall maintenance needs attention.

    CAUTION: This hostel has bed bugs and cockroaches in the dorms. The management is aware of this problem but doesn't care about it. According to the staff, the hostel has been closed in the past cause of this problem.

    The only part of the hostel that was clean was the bed. The kitchens were disgusting. No lockers for your stuff. Reception closed at 6pm so I just came in at 8 and they had emailed me the info to get in without even checking in. All the people seemed like they knew each other and were quite cliquey. Have a complaint? The response is CU in NT. Left the next day to go to a different hotel, would much rather pay more money to have the extra comfort. One of the worst hostels I've stayed at

    Very disappointed by this place. Bathrooms were dirty. I had no blanket or sheet. And there was a number at reception that no one ever responded to.
