There's nothing particularly wrong with the room but it is bit like a hospital. Just very basic. Seemed expensive for $100 but maybe this is Darwin prices. Unbelievably loud music at bar lucky my room was at the back. Depressing kitchen, pretty grimy with no equipment.

We booked Melaleuca knowing it's reputation as a party hostel because it wasn't for us. But everyone who seemed to be going out every day looked like they were having a great time. There are loads of events and nights advertised and people do try to get you involved but it's clear that you have to 'fit the mould' to... More

Hostel is located on the mitchell street/party street. The hostel is clean, beds and shower are ok. No free wifi in the hostel. You can have free wifi just outside the hostel from peterpan travel agency.

This would be a great hostel to stay at if you are looking for a party every night. They have different events going on most nights of the week and have specials with Monsoons (the pub down the road). My friend and I weren't here for a party so it wasn't exactly what we were looking for... There wasn't really... More

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
