This hostel does not have anything spectacular as such that would set it apart from any others, yet it is one hostel that I found myself most comfortable in. The rooms are basic but clean, the pool is spotless and the toilets are okay. But the atmosphere in the place is good and it is easy to both socialise if... More

The staff was friendly but the people staying there didn't want to socialize with anyone new. Seemed like everyone staying was living on the floor of the hostel rooms for months. The floors were covered with everyone's belongings. It was hard to get to top bunk because you had to climb over all the items scattered throughout. No lockers in... More

Stayed here for two nights. Has a great big pool area, a great backpackers for socializing, and drinking then going out etc. It's also in a really good location and the bed in the 8 bedroom dorm were so COMFORTABLE. But for the price of it (I know all aussies backpackers are dear) they could atleast have lockers. There was... More

dingo moon lodge is the best hostel in darwin. relatively cheap (for darwin) and enough far away from the party scene at mitchell street to be able to relax around the amazing pool but close enough to be there in a few minutes if you wanna go out. whether the staff is friendly or not depends on which backpacker is...

We stayed here for 2 nights. It is okay, the rooms are a good size, although there aren't lockers and the bunk beds didn't have ladders which was annoying. The included breakfast is always a positive and is good. It's in a good location at the end of Mitchell Street, close enough to walk to everything but far enough to... More

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
