Enjoyed my one night stay here before travelling to Alice Springs. The hostel owner was friendly and gave out plenty of free wifi which reaches your room (usually only common area!). This allowed me to do research on trips/tours, book my next place to stay and catch up with people from home. The bed was very comfortable and I had... More

This is a very special place, offers a peaceful surrounding, even the chickens are relaxed. Coco is a nice and helpful host and has a lot of knowledge about the area, people and nature and has a lot of hints, what to do.

Best hostel in Katherine (actually there are only 2), Coco is a very nice host. The hostel looks a little bit old, but the room is very clean and comfortable, the air conditioner works well. The location is good too, very close to the Mcdonald where you can have free WIFI and air con.

Great for a cheap, and relaxed time. Great art work, with Awesome Didgeridoos which were some of the best I've played After a hot day, the balinese shower out the back refreshes you then sit back and talk with the friendly locals with a cold beer. Walking is easy to the shops (Woolies), with a good working kitchen. Coco, the... More

Situated near Woolies in First Street you can walk everywhere. The hostel is basic but friendly and the Artwork (aboriginal ) itself makes the stay worthwhile. Coco is a mine of information and even if you don't want to stay in a backpackers a visit here is a must.

This backpackers is basic, with camping ground and two kitchens. The owners are friendly with very relaxed and laid back attitude. The hostel is quiet, stayed in total nearly 5 weeks. Recommend it. Katherine is an outback town so expect the randomness.
