Cheap, budget, basic
Central location
I had a private room with shared bathroom but the experience was very basic. This hostel is great if you want a no frills cheap as experience - you may as we'll go for a dorm room as the facilities shared for a private room are the same but you pay three times the price. If looking for a cheaper private room spend an extra 40 bucks and go for a travelodge or cheap motel instead. That said this hostel is in a brilliant location and the staff will help with airport transfers etc. plus, a good place to meet other travellers.

Just a so so experience.
friendly staff, central location, close to restaurant
This is quite a noisy hostel since many working holiday youngster are staying here for longer terms.The double deck bed is a bit too high. it is a bit difficult to climb up to the upper level as the gap of the stair case is quite big.That was smell in the room as well.

well located backpaker hostel in heart of darwin
th best things were the location and proximity to shops and supermarkets
i enjoyed my stay at chillis the staff were friendly and helpful.the rooms were clean and well designed for dorms.It was only a 2 minute walk to the Coles supermarket next door and restaurants in mitchell street all walking distance.The only fault i could find was the loud music blaring out all night every night but this was one of the quieter backpackers compared to the others.

Appropriate choice for backpackers
Close to nightlife, cheap for Darwin, all hours check in
. Having stayed at hostels, Chilli's is far more suitable for a backpacker looking for a quieter (but still not quiet) night. If you want the party scene, go for the Youth Shack which has a bar inside. This is not the type of place to stay if your looking for comfort, quiet or really anything, but the cheapest room possible. so many may be drawn to stay here, but I would strongly recommend you scope out one of the other great deals on Agoda for accommodation As flights in Darwin can arrive and depart at all times of the night, Mitchell St can be a pretty scary place to stand and wait for someone to come and let you in to the hostel at 2am in the morning. If you are arriving outside of the reception hours, I would recommend obtaining the night manager's number prior to arrival so that they are ready for you when you arrive. Chilli's has a no alcohol policy in all rooms, which I think is a good thing! Shared bathrooms are standard in all rooms.

Wouldn't do it again
Central to the Darwin hub.
If you are a backpacker and prepared to rough it then hey, no problems. If you are a person who likes a little bit of value for money then don't bother.

dorm room in budget hostel
location, cant think of another 2
standard as most backpackers, dorm bed was ok, places to hang out, fairly secure. close to the bars etc. of course if you want anything more than that you have to pay for it. just stayed the one night. does what it says on the tin.
