Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was looking for something cheap enough and away from the main strip in Darwin which is Mitchel street, was quite concerned as i read reviews but none of the posted ones were recent so I thought ONE NIGHT and if it is as bad as the reviews Back to Mitchel street. The front desk service was polite and efficient [good start] the kitchen area was clean and the rooms although dated were also clean and tidy stayed for a week happy out. Very close to everything in town and the rooms and linen clean wasn't asking for much more than that on a budget

Dirty rooms, noisy plus rooms that thin like paper you can here next doors conversation, I would never stay here even if I got paid to stay there, I'd rather sleep on a park bench than stay there again, it should be closed down or donated to a homeless shelter

The internet pictures profoundly misrepresented this backpacker accommodation. We stayed in two different rooms and found both to be really dirty and in need of repair (e.g. broken chairs). Taps leaked, drains were clogged and the air conditioner dripped constantly and noisily on to the bench top and floor. We had cockroaches for company and frayed, stained towels in the bathroom (although these were, on request, replaced). The communal kitchen was disgusting and we did not use it. However, staff were helpful at all times and apologetic about the lack of cleaning and weary facilities.

Totally agree that this place is horrible. I went based on the comment that it was comfortable and quiet. It was neither! The rooms are in deperate need of a renovation and good clean up. There are ants everywhere. I booked a triple room, paid more, thinking I will get a more spacious room. Instead I got this funny room that totally looked like a former shower/locker room turned hotel room. No kidding! The shower/toilet area is as big as the room itself. You can clearly see that there were 3 former toilet cubicles. One they converted to shower cubicle, one toilet remained, the other toilet cubicle they happily put a closet in front of it and viola, you got your ward robe. The toilet bowl is still behind the 'ward robe' for goodness sake. And there are all sorts of insects crawling/flying in because some of the window panes were broken and not replace. The air conditioning is super noisy and not cold! The room, after the double and single bed, hardly have any space to move around. When we told them we wanted to change to a bigger room because we have 2 huge suitcases, they tell us to put the suitcase on the single bed so there will be space. Hello? We booked a triple room because there were 3 of us? So where is my friend going to sleep if we use the bed for 'storage'? Last but not least, the bed is full of bed bugs! We didn't realise it until the next morning (we wanted to move out immediately but everywhere else is fully booked) and personally I got like 40 bites on both my hands and legs and even on my face and neck area. The only good thing is that the front desk people are really friendly and helpful but it doesn't make up for the conditions of the room at all. Totally not coming back!!
