There wasnt much i liked, except the bedroom was quiet, good storage lockers, and well away from the bar. I liked that there was an extra fridge on the girls floor which had space. Saved me from the bun fight in the kitchen. The price was good also. Didnt like the bar, constant noise, lack of quiet places to relax, lounge around. Kitchen was like a sauna, no freezers, very limited fridge space. The plastic bowl provided with a deposit was way too small for my apetite. The bar detracted from any good aspects of this hostel. There are so many places to party in Darwin. Even in the morning i couldnt escape the musak. One thing playing in the kitchen and something else by the pool. Both coming into your ears when youre waking up. TOO MUCH NOISE!

It‘s cool that you can go swim in the pools or that you can watch Netflix for free. I didn‘t liked the kitchen though, because it‘s always messed up.

Loved the place, especially the swimming pools and bar area on the roof. My single room was OK but a little bit humid (due to season, certainly).
