I was very disappointed with customer service. I booked a room and was told they would send an email with confirmation and payment details. I didn't receive the promised email. The very next day I emailed asking about this email and discovered not only had they recorded the wrong email address they said sorry your room is gone and we... More

I enjoyed my stay. Everthing was clean, the kitchen was not too busy. The laundry service and breakfast for free was good. The 4 bed mixed dorm was ok and it has aircon. There were enough showers and toilets, it never was to busy. The swimming pool is nice. Only one thing, when I arrived I wanted to book a... More

I stayed in Dingo Moon Lodge just for two nights, and all I can say is that I wish I had chosen YHA, which is just in front! The swimming pool was OK, but my room was too small for 4 people and they were not very clean. The shared bathrooms were umcomfortable, with tiny washbasins where you could hardly... More

I specifically chose this hostel, which is a little far from the bustling night-clubs. Its little off from the main busy places on mitchell street, which makes the best place to have quality rest time, especially when we needed some on the night times. This hostel is opposite of Darwin YHA Hostel., and just 10 minutes walk to the middle... More

The room was a fair size with plenty of storage space (double room), fridge was absolutely filthy. Showers and toilets fairly good for a hostel and the place had a relaxed vibe about it. They seem very intent on following everything to the letter in terms of check out times baggage etc.. expensive for what it is but so is... More

Dingo lodge is a fun, laid-back hostel for people that perhaps don't want the hustle and bustle of Meleluca. It's got a nice pool and our room (4 person mixed) was moderate, it had a decent roof fan and air con but was on the small side and only two plugs for everyone to share. The kitchen was also sizeable... More

Up until checking out I was pleasantly surprised with this hostel. Small and friendly, kitchen always clean and bathrooms fine. Even the laundry facilities were good. One new staff member invited me to the cinema with some friends = fantastic! Then on my final day (check out at 10am) I stayed on the premises until 4pm with my bag in... More

Location is good- you can walk from hostel to everywhere e.g. mindil beach or to the waterfront area. It's not too close to the main street which can get very rowdy at night. 4-bed dorm is ok. Just that the shared toilets and showers are below my expectations- cubicles are small and sometimes dirty, since the hostel was full during... More

Spent just one night in a family room (2 adults & 2 children) before leaving Australia. The room was clean and spacy. The pool was clean and great fun for the young ones. Cosy atmosphere and a friendly environment. "Hanging out in the evening talking with the other guests was just great" according to our 7 year old. The staff... More
