best place to socialize
I found that the location was the best you could have in Darwin. there were plenty of people around to socialize with and the bed was pretty comfortable. one of my only complaints was how loud the door to the dorm was everytime you opened it. my roommates were nice , but expect to find junk all over the floor. it seems like a lot of people who stay her only come to party and work. the staff isn't helpful at all and are actually kind do of rude. you'll find the people you meet are much kinder.

Wouldn't stay here again
Really disgusting kitchen!! Hostel feels really dirty, some people in reception are a bit rude. I wouldn't stay there again and I would never recommend anyone staying here.. There's a lot of good hostels for the same price practically next door.

pros and cons
Overall staff was very helpful and friendly. This kitchen was utterly disorganized and not pleasant to work in. After the floor of our room was mopped it stayed wet and when I hung my damp sarong to dry it got wetter. The shower area was very nice and clean. As far as they area is concerned there are many bars and my roommate witnessed an altercation wherein a couple of drunks made a scene in a restaurant. Also there were headlines in the local paper of a woman being beaten just down the street from the hostel.

The staff is attentive and engaging
The staff is far and away the best thing about this place. They are very helpful, and attentive to needs. I ended up with bugs in my room (cockroaches and some beetle that came in with rain) and the staff was great about spraying the room the day of he report and the day after. One member also looked into the bus schedule for me on his own phone when I was trying to get out to a semi-local crocodile park. The pool and sundeck are a great place to hang out and relax. The bar is a bonus and convenient for hot days. However, the property shows its age. It is not as kept up as it could be and the lack of wifi is annoying. You can access wifi for $4 for 24 hours, but it doesn't work well off the first floor. There is also a storage place for luggage which is nice, but it absolutely reeks of mold. My bag was in there for five hours and still reeks. As I mentioned, the staff is definitely the star of this place. In addition to the bug issue (it is the wet season, bugs happen, the staff responded very quickly), myself and another girl in the dorm had a problem with a guy who arrived after us and kept setting the AC entirely too low for our comfort. He would act like he was fine keeping it at the preset 23 degrees, but when one or both of us left the room he brought it way down to 18. One quick conversation and the gentlemen on the swing shift moved the guy into his own private room.

This is a great budget accommodation. We stayed here for a week. Perfect location. We were here in the wet season so it was quiet, not sure how it would be in the dry season. My only fault would be they ask you not to turn off the a/c and the room was freezing!
