"Anything goes with the Froggy Spirit," John, a resident-worker told me the first of three nights. That is, however, with strict, sensible rules: kitchen and pool times, no glass, no noise after 9 pm. Canned beer is OK and lots in view. "Froggy Spirit" is an atmosphere of helpful mates -- perhaps 70 % of the residents are men, half of whom appear employed and living on the cheap. While others have called attention to less than desired cleanliness, it is backpacker-clean-tidy-neat with everything comfortably (or not) worn, casual. Across from a park the property has that wanted tropical look. A plus, if you have wheels, is limited parking; Darwin is not car friendly. One computer is free to use.
