Terrible, do not stay here!

Pros: Unfortunately, there is nothing to be liked at this hostel.
Cons: Starting by fixing the beds, cleaning the rooms/bathrooms, ask guests who are disorderly and rude to leave, clean the kitchen fridges, secure area.
Unfortunately, this hostel was the worst that I have ever stayed in. People were drunk and unruly during daylight hours, and throughout the night. The room was not clean, and the bathroom was disgusting. I stayed on a top bunk and as I got up to get on the bed, the guard rail fell off! I paid for 3 nights, but only stayed one. It is one of the few times I've ever felt really unsafe in a hostel. There are many other reputable hostels in Darwin - don't stay here!
