      Smack bang in the middle of the life of Darwin! Bars, restaurants etc. round the corner. Taxi rank just outside. Swimming pool and bar buzzing with backpackers.

      Was not good value for money at $89 for a double with a shared bathroom.

      The morning staff was very friendly and helpful thou the same can't be said for the afternoon next evening staff.

      The room looks very clean n well kept however we suspect there is bed bug. However since the place looks generally very clean this might just be a one off case.

      Location & price

      Early morning check-out was a problem for not just myself, but several other folks. We were supposed to to call the night mgr. According to the note on the door however, none of us had a phone?!?!? Actually, he was inside the office but wouldn't open the door for approx. 10-15 minutes until one of us finally yelled through the door that we needed to leave!!

      Water was switched off at one point. When it came back on, my room was flooded, damaging a number of my books and soaking my clothes. Toilets were pretty disgusting too.

      Had some big bugs in our room the first night. Afterwards the bugs was gone, a massive rage of ants came in, and played along with our bread and honey - that sucks bigtime!

      well its full of drug smoking pill popping drug addicts and i paid 100 a day for a double room and they turned the airconditioner off from 12 midday until 7pm. never ever go back there again and the night manager patrick needs to learn some manners.

      Room was clean. We were in the back of the building, little noise.

      The room was clean. That is the only good thing to say about our stay. Everything else was filthy. They charge for towels, deposit on room key. Band plays loud, very loud. Young crowd who are drunk, beer being spilled on the floor, no supervision. No urinals in the men's bathroom and they are cleaned once a day, poorly. All in all, the worst place we have stayed since we have been touring your great country from May 12, 2012

      Located close to lots of places to eat. Easy to get to the airport shuttle

      Wasnt a very friendly feel. Quite noisy at night, especially seeing as it was a Monday. The bathroom was gross. No toilet paper in any of the toilet stalls. An alarm was going off at 3am for 40 minutes which kept me awake.
