I stayed here for 5 weeks from mid June. A 4 bed dorm in the dry season will set you back approx $180 a week or $32 a night in the dry season and from what I had seen this is one of the cheapest in Darwin. Located at the Mindil Beach end of Mitchell Street away from the nosier... More

Reserving a room here is a disaster. We called a few days ahead and were told to call one day before we want to arrive. So we did, a room was available and reserved for us. Upon arrival nobody at reception knew about this, we waited together with 8 other people until the (probably) manager came out and said there... More

We done a bit of researching and the YMCA came out as the cheapest weekly rate on twin/double rooms. When we arrived the room needed cleaning as there were cobwebs on the walls and tiny... More

Loved the YMCA, lovely spacious kitchen and communal area with a pool table, library, pool and even a cinema screen all well located. The rooms are ideal and much better than you'd get in any dorm hostel...private rooms for a hell of a lot cheaper than a bunk bed elsewhere. Close walk to the Darwin Esplanade and city centre with...

YMCA Top End Hostel has my vote for the best hostel in Darwin. Cheapest rates, very large area which gives you more personal space. As I was working while staying in Darwin this hostel was perfect - no racket during the night and you could wake up in the morning feeling fresh and rested. It certainly doesn't mean the place...

Cheapest in Darwin but hard to get in. Only given one month stay. Clean and quiet environment. Big swimming pool and good Internet facility. Not enough carpark but overall love to come again in the future. Friendly staff. Did not expect cheap rate to have excellent hostel.
