It depends on what you class decent ie is it a very sociable hostel, clean hostel in good location or what.
I stayed at Hostelling International Sukhumvit when I was in Bangkok and that was a good hostel. On hostelworld it has a rating of 89% (the highest of any hostel in Bangkok).
In Hong Kong I stayed at Wang Fat hostel. It wasn't a particularly fun hostel although I did meet a few nice people there. It was good value by Hong Kong standards and was in a good location in Causeway Bay. It was also very easy to get to using the bus from the airport which stopped only half a block away. The overall satisfaction rating for that hostel is a 72% which is about the same rating as most the hostels in Hong Kong.
I haven't stayed at any hostel in Darwin, but the highest rated hostels in Darwin are Melaleuca On Mitchell at 84% satisfaction rate and Chilli's Backpackers at 80% satisfaction rate, so I'd reckon those two would be your best bet for good hostels in Darwin.
Have a great trip.
thanks for your help
