Backpacking / gap year, Beach / sunbathing

Liked: I stayed there 2 months, since it was close to my work. The location is close to mindil beach which is really nice. And Yen the owner is so nice, really helpful if you need anything.

Disliked: The location is far away from the city center, 20 min walk to get groceries. 40 min walk to the lagoon. The hostel is very old and not clean at all. Way to expensive for a hostel like this one, but thats normal price for Darwin i guess.

Liked: Very cheap. I met so many amazing people here. They put too much chlorine in the pool, but besides that everything works real well.

Disliked: At the end of the street, so you have to walk 1 kilometer to buy groceries.
