Friendly staff basic accommodation
It was cheap and available
My stay was brief due to a late arrival into Darwin and an early departure in the morning. The staff waited up for my arrival allowing me to check in, they were helpful and friendly

Never stay here
My stay here was very disappointing. I enter an extremely messy room to be told by the girls sitting on the floor, that there is no spare bed here. It turns out there was a girl, who wasn't suppose to be there. Does the hostel not keep a record of who is staying there?? The receptionist moves me to a different room after I complain. The 2nd room is slightly better, but still extremely messy as no storage is provided. After getting settled I wish to wash my clothes. At this point I find out that only 1 washing machine and 1 drier are working. The other machines are all out of order, which they have been for over a week (I was told by other backpackers). Not acceptable for such a big hostel. I would not recommend this hostel to anyone, and I will certainly not be staying there again.
