This is mainly for backpackers BUT we also enjoyed staying here. The room (double with own bathroom) had just the bare basics (bed, and small cupboard), but clean with a comfortable bed and air con, which is a must in Darwin. The young persons at the reception were very polite, friendly and helpful. The best part of this accommodation however... More

To be honest, when we first entered "Mom" (how the hostel calls itself), we were quiet shocked. Loud music from the people, drunk people at 5pm and a real party-atmosphere. The rooms are absolutely simple and don't have a real window. But after nine days camping in the outback, wie figured that the beds were quiet good to sleep in.... More

This is in a good location and the staff are really nice and helpful. But unfortunately there are no rules or enforcement of just plain common courtesy and drunks are allowed to carry on all hours of the night with stomping, loud music, loud voices and slamming doors. Considering we had paid extra for a private room and were not... More

One of the girls that was sharing the room with me arrived at 3am and had sex with another girl (she wasn't staying on the hostel) while we where all sleeping (not a nice way to wake up). Where is the organization of the hostel that said that "we do not allow non-guests to stay here at night"? Besides that,... More

If you are into all night partying, loud music, drinking, and random noise until 4am, then this is the hostel for you. But bring your own linen as they don't give you any. And bring your own cookware, plates, and utensils, as you have to rent theirs and they are unbelievably disgusting. Don't even store food in the kitchen as... More

We arrived after midnight and Mitchell Street was still buzzing. We decided to book into the Malaleuca because the only major Trip Advisor negative review....seemed to be "lack of sleep from rowdy guests in the swimming pools"...right up our alley we thought "who needs sleep on holidays??" So we booked in for 8 days... The good....you ARE in the centre... More

If you just want to party this hostel is fine otherwise stay away from it. I stayed there for 5 nights and had only 1 night that I was not woken up by people partying or banging on doors. The girl at reception was very rude when I was checking in. The air conditioning in room didn't work and I've... More

Rooms cleaned regularly, good shower area, bar with cheap jugs, central Darwin right next to clubs etc. I had an allergic reaction to the strong detergent the use (happens sometimes) and after deciding to cut my stay here short, the manager on reception refunded me the rest of my stay plus one extra night to buy any creams etc needed....
