The staff was unfriendly and the bathroom in the girl floor was always dirty. Broken Toilers. Room feels like it's never really been clean and I question if they even change the bed sheets. Great for party-ers as they play loud music from 12pm till late and have a bar

Poor staff
Very unwelcoming staff. Have to pay for everything and anything you use. Cheap rates cause they charge you for towels and wifi. Staff very unfriendly not helpful at all.

You pay for the wifi and you get a very spotty reception!
Agora should have a clearer wifi policy on site!

Affordable and standard accomodation
Great location (within city centre, easy transfer from airport)
I needed a place to sleep for one night only - it provided what I needed. The hostel staff were very helpful and enthusiastic. I haven't tried the food there so I don't know how good it is. There are lovely cafes nearby. Great location.

location, bar and surrounds
Stayed a single night while in transit. Nice enough but a bit dirty. But the location more than made up for it and the staff were very friendly.

Typically expensive for Darwin
Location, air conditioning, social aspect
Over priced single room but Darwin is expensive. Bed was very uncomfortable. Bathrooms were not clean. Pool area was good. Air conditioning made room nice and cool.
