Nice budget option! Good security on the dorm door! Private room was nice but slightly loud as the sound from the next door bar boom into the room! Parking on site which was convenient! 24hr reception which made it good to check in late! Pool upstairs & rooftop area was great!

The staff is friendly. Great location, right in the middle of the city and action for evening night out. Room is standard as showed in picture. not supper clean but acceptable. It’s a hostel so I can’t expect more. If you are backpacking it’s fine but if you are not then look for something that’s not hostel with drunk young people.

The staff were terrific but the building and furniture have become old and very worn. Over used and not maintained. Wall paint peeling and shower only a dribble. Not a shower. Good hot water in sink tap and good Airconditionimg, which was a relief.

I'm glad the staff made your welcome, and I apologise that you found the building not up to standard. We are currently undertaking a programme to bring these back up to an acceptable level.

The hostel was very fun and vibrant and gave lots of information on tours around Darwin.

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!

Hi Julia, I'm sorry to hear that you found the music too loud. We endeavor to accommodate everyone and generally don;t have music on until lunchtime. We also provide a dining room and TV to chill out in. I'm glad you found the bedroom quiet.

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.

We try and keep the kitchen tidy, but ultimately that relies on the co-operation of guests.
