We were very confused by this hostel. We phoned 'Kookaburra' but ended up here?? We had a 'motel' room which was lovely - very clean and tidy with own kitchen and bathroom at a very reasonable rate. The rest of the hostel needs a little work - limited washing machines and the communal areas need work. If you stay in one of the motel rooms (some are 4/6 share dorms) then it is a good place to stay - not so sure about the main building!

OK but not one to go out of your way for

I turned up on spec and got the last bed available in the place - probably worth booking ahead if you're planning on staying here. The vast majority of people seemed to be workers rather than travellers. I stayed in 10 bed dorms with ensuite bathroom, which isn't a great idea with so many people - I ended up using a shared shower in another part of the building that had a good selection of cobwebs. The kitchen was rather small so got crowded quickly. The staff were helpful and the other residents were friendly, but I probably wouldn't choose to stay here again.

One of the best I've ever stayed at...

Palm Court, you've captured my heart. This has to be one of the best hostels in Australia. Most rooms are 4-bed dorms (with ensuite!), though there are doubles and a couple large-family dorm rooms. Great pool, large kitchen with all the amenities, air-conditioned rooms for those hot nights, and a great outdoor communal area for socializing. One complaint would be the lack of a tv room, but that only forces you to meet some more great friends! Bring some music of your own, and the manager might just let you blast it out of the hostel sound system. Of the few hostels in Katherine, this is the jewel in the crown. A stay here will be well rewarded.
