I'm not sure why this place has had such bad reviews. It was cheap, clean and had everything you needed from a hostel. We asked for a quiet room after reading the other comments, and were given a room on the second floor over looking the pool. Considering it was still pretty close to the bar, we hardly heard anything... More

Not much going for this place really. Incredibly overpriced but most places are during the dry. It's central location means it is attached to a late night bar, so unless you're out on the town yourself, I wouldn't recommend it for a quiet nights sleep. Shared bathroom door wouldn't close on the mens so anyone could walk in whilst showering.

Nice apartments and clean, cleaning staff very nice and helpful, the owner/manager she was not so nice, people from the bar can enter during the day. I had my bag stolen around swimming pool area, so bad end to my stay.

One night in a private room "with window" (because we could choose without any for 10$ less). So actually it was like if there was no window.. Small kitchen at the ground floor. The room was not really good. And they ask you for a 300$ deposit if you pay cash or by debit card. Just enough for one night.

The Ashton Lodge was exactly what we were looking for when we came to Darwin! Right in the middle of the city, so everything was in walking distance. Its surrounded by restaurants and bars with the waterfront only a ten minute walk down the road. The room was exactly what we needed: clean, standard and a decent price. Not to... More

It was the cheapest place we could find in Darwin last min and stayed for 3 nights. It is perfect for people wanting to stay in the middle of all the action in Darwin CBD and plan on spending most nights out. We found falling asleep easy and stayed on the top floor so had no problems. Rooms are standard... More

I read the negative reviews before staying here but pretty much due to my budget and lack of options I booked a double room with shared bathroom facilities - Room 14 (first floor).

It's v conveniently located at mitchell Street; yet the room we stayed on is quite quiet despite the noise along the street. There's a bar at the lodge which looks petty cool and... More
