Good location in Darwin, bathrooms were okay often out of toilet paper, staff were friendly and helpful and gave good info. Kitchen is disgusting, so small and no where near enough space for people, not even any seats to sit at most days. Felt like a bad atmosphere from other backpackers in the hostel especially as a lot are long termers, I wouldn’t like to stay here as a solo traveller, good luck finding anyone that isn’t French if you’re a different nationality

Decent place to stay. Lots of longterm volunteers though which affects how clean the room is. The location is great, and staff are friendly, but dont tell you that you need to rent cutlery, plate and mug or plate or much really about the hostel/where you can find the study room etc. But other than that everything was fine.

The room was fine, it was nice to have a sink in the room. They only give a top sheet, but I asked for a second blanket because I was cold. The WiFi didn’t work well on the upper floors. The water was always boiling hot in the sinks and the showers. At times, it was too hot to even stand under or wash my hands for longer than a few seconds. Especially when it’s so hot outside, I did not want a crazy hot shower. It’s a busy hostel with a DJ and a lot of people. The free food events were nice.
