    Very disappointed by the staff of this hostel!When I arrived the girl at the reception didn’t even bother to tell me about times and layout of the hostel, she just gave the key of my room and showed me which one it was. The guy at the entrance is grumpy and rude. Kitchen is really dirty. No decent cutlery, you have to pay $10 for your own set.. fine, but not even a proper knife to chop veggies or cut the bread! So Disappointed! Good location though ;)

    This was a horrific hostel to go to. The older more permenant guests make it a very unsafe, uneasy atmosphere. Overall the worst hostel I have ever stayed in during my travels across Australia and Europe. I wouldn’t pay more than $7 a night for this place. Let alone have paid $22. Very dissatisfied, when I went on my tour the next day even the tour guide knew the standards of this hostel.

    The hostel was really unclean; goes for showers kitchen and rooms, personnel was either incapable or extremely unfriendly. Beds were not cleaned when people left. Never put in a review before but the review is just way too high here which results in people (like us) going there while it’s one of the worst hostels in Darwin.

    Wasn’t impressed at all!!! The bathrooms were incredibly dirty, grout everywhere and sinks not properly cleaned. The room I was in was a mess, looked as though it hadn’t been cleaned in ages, stuff from previous people were still left lying around. Mattress’s were falling apart. Some of the more permanent guests were quiet unnerving.
