    Nice cheap place to stay, family atmosphere, close to Mindil beach and just a short walk to the party places on Mitchell street. Kitchen could be a little bit bigger, but a big common area

    This hostel was class, not the cleanest but ok for a few nights. Chilled out atmosphere not a party hostel but good for a few beers. Its family run so a very welcoming stay. Its about a 20 min walk to Darwin centre but there is also a bus run into town. Would Defo stay again if I am in town.

    The bed is really comfortable. The owner is really nice, he printed a file for me when i couldn't find any other print stores. I think the location is perfect, not far from the city center, enough space to park my car.

    Owner is super friendly and accomodating. Good location, walking distance from all the nightlife but far enough away to be quiet. Only downside is the rooms/bathrooms are really dirty, like layers of scum coat the bathroom.

    Pros : The hostel is located a at a convenient spot, just a few minutes walk away from Mitchell Beach and the bus stop is just directly opposite the hostel. There are buses to get the city centers. The reception was really helpful and kind to us, he answered to all of our inquiries/requests. The kitchen is equipped with many cooking utensils. Cons: The beds we slept on has bed bugs and I felt itchy after sleeping on it. The toilets and bathrooms cleanliness has room for improvement.

    The owner was really lovely and helpful! The location isn’t too bad. Around a 15min walk into the city. Hostel is pretty chilled although a lot of people there are working. Although the rooms were clean - and had a fridge in, the rest of the hostel wasn’t that clean. Kitchen area was partly outside and quite dirty, and the toilets were pretty unpleasant. The shower had a hole in the ceiling and needed a good scrub. If it were cleaner this would be a great hostel.
