I stayed here from feb 2013- November and had the best time of my life. The staff are very helpful and friendly and do the best to make your stay as comfy and fun as possible! The beds can do with being a bit softer but they are getting new ones apparently! It's clean and a perfect place to meet... More

Best location for a hostel on Mitchell Street, being the only busy street in Darwin! Arrived in a nice clean 4 bed dorm (which we got at a discounted rate by booking through Peterpans) we had clean sheets on the bed, free air con and an en suite which was small but clean. Kitchen was large enough but we didn't... More

Myself and two others stayed here for a week in a six bed dorm, the hostel is in a good position and the staff were happy and relaxed. Wasn't a proper party hostel as we expected but it depends on the type of people that stay at the time you're there. The bathrooms were always clean and tidy but the... More

We stayed for a night, just before taking the plane with our three kids (12, 9 and 6). The place is clean and the staff super friendly. We were there on a Saturday and therefore were expecting the worse in terms of noise and action (based on what we had read about the place). On the contrary, although a little... More

I had a really good stay at Maleluca. Even though laundry machines where almost completely out of order and dryers swallowed my money, but the staff at the reception was very helpful and returned the money. Unfortunately I had very noisy people in my dorm so I chose to go to a single room for my last night which was... More

Great people, great vibe. Pete knows how to get the party started! MORE DEEP HOUSE!!! Really into the music that gets played it changes everyone's mood from bad to awesome. Cheap drinks and there's always something fun happening every night. I love this place!

The hotel/hostel is well located in the center of Darwin. Restaurants and shops (Smith Mall) are very close. The Darwin Harbour and the bicentennial park are in walking distance. Don't miss the crocosaurus tour. Nice pool. Good place to meet people.

Bed was absoluletly buggered. Aircon dripped loudly constantly day and night on or off. Floors got soaking wet. Guess it was 2 do with a/c and humidity. Key card readers are terrible to use often had to go to reception about it. Price would b good if everything worked properly

We stayed for 1 night only. It was ok, big kitchen, clean bathrooms. The room was ok, enough space. Aircon was a bit too hard and internally regulated. Staff was friendly. Good location. All in all an average stay at an average hostel. Too expensive though, but that's the case everywhere in Darwin :-)
