TravelPod Member ReviewsGecko Lodge Darwin
The hostel is quiet, has a friendly feel and in a good location - just a short walk to Mitchell Street. However, there were few actual Backpackers staying and lots of older Australian working men.
The facilities were also poor, only one toilet and shower were in use for the entire hostel by the time we checked out. The kitchen is very small and the cooktops do not work properly, it takes almost 40 minutes to cook pasta. The airconditioning is only turned on after 7 or 8pm and turned off again in the morning which means the rooms are very very warm in the day.
