I arrived at 2am on a Saturday and the parties on Mitchell St were still on (there are heaps of pubs next to the hostel), so you could hear some noise inside your room. The beds were weird because some of them have a plastic cover, but soft enough to get you to sleep eventually. The bar is good, with... More

I recently backpacked around Australia and this was definitely my favourite hostel. The room is basic, simply with beds. The bathroom was down the hall but good. But what I loved about this hostel was that it was so much fun! It's in an awesome location, right in the middle of Mitchell street. There's a pool and bar which sells... More

Stayed here for one night before picking up a campervan. We had a room down the back with ensuite. It was clean and quiet. Kitchen not the best. Staff friendly and helpful. Did not use any of the other amenities

This place is geared towards drinking and partys. The bar is always loud and it does a great deal on cheap beer. If thats not what you are looking for this wont be the hostel for you. The kitchen is terrible (some hobs dont work and it lacks the main utensils you need to cook). The pool is great to... More

9am arrival so asked when may be the earliest time for checkin. The response of possibly 1pm was reasonable and after confirming my reservation came 'we are a licensed venue so no alcohol can be bought in from outside'. They were the only words of welcome. No offer of where to place my bags, no advice as to where I... More

Avoid this place if you travel with your family or your partner: noisy young backpackers (there is bar playing music at the top of the hostel), uncomfortable rooms with nothing more than cheap beds (our was broken) and dirty shared rooms are what you should expect.

The pool area is cool, but the water like darwin is very humid and unsatifying to get into, id much prefer the waterfront.... More

This is a very central hostel, hard to miss. More of a party hostel, can really only meet people in your dorm, as everyone heads out to the balacony to party. The kitchen is small and all the hobs either don't work, or have little power left in them, cooking is nightmare. on to the good side, the staff are... More

One of the best placed backpackers anywhere in Darwin. Beautiful outside drinking/eating area with a pool. Don't expect to be staying at a quiet place! Mitchell street isn't well know for quiet anyway. Toilets and bathroom weren't the cleanest I've seen. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm, bed was comfortable and the room had a great aircon. Overall cheap rates... More
