MD5 digests are 128-bits (16 bytes) long.  When represented with just 16 bytes, the digest often appears as "garbage" because parts of the digest may not map to printable characters.  For this reason, digests are often displayed in hex.

When displayed in hex, an MD5 digest appears to be 32 bytes long (because two characters are being used to represent one byte from the digest):
