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.

... put your hands on or over the gating along the edge....because we already had a visitor eyeing us off. A fairly large croc swimming towards the boat..eeek!
Headed off down the river to start with....saw many crocs in and out of the water. Some great stories and info about the crocs and when the wet season hits. After feeding a few crocs we turned around and headed back up the river to find 'Brutis' one of the larger croc. First we came across 'The Dominator' sound asleep ...
