We stayed in YHA for 1 week although a little bit more expensive than other YHA we have stayed in, we had no problems at all. It is close to the CBD and quiet enough at night, kitchen was good although got a bit too busy at peak cooking time. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm with ensuite, beds... More

The staff wasn't that friendly and the construction was annoying. It was quiet though and if you weren't trying to work on your tan the pool was nice. There weren't any power points right next to my bed but there were plenty in the room for everyone to have their own (6 bed room). I also wish there was somewhere... More

Best hostel experience during my stay in Australia - clean, good facilities (including fridge, table in the room), friendly staff. I had room to myself, no so cheap, but at least you get good quality for that money, unlike some other Aussie hostels.

This is by far In my opinion the best hostel in darwin... But the choice isn't great! The rest of the hostels in darwin are dirty and very small rooms... Yha has big rooms and clean private bathrooms and a great clean pool.... The majority of the staff are great and very helpful... The only thing that let's this hostel... More

Always had a cold shower, no hot water. I understand YHA is about 35 dollars a night but then I thought about it, this place is getting about $210 per night per room, given that I think they could perhaps provide better mattresses. I will admit my dislike for this YHA my have been the other guests in the room... More

Hi Dion Thank you for your important feedback and our apologies about the difficulties you had with the hot water. We have a number of tanks and one of them was out of operation recently, requiring repairs. This obviously affected your room at the time you wanted to shower, so again our apologies for that. If you are ever having... More

I stayed here at each end of an Adventure Tours trip of the national parks. I stayed in a double room on the first floor on two occasions, and the rooms were very clean and well presented. I did find that the room rate was a big on the high side, but as I am not a YHA member I... More

Travelling as a couple, we were a bit worried about sharing a 6-bed mix dorm with other people but our roomies were great and trustful. The room was big, clean, modern with private bathroom and a fridge. Aircon was a bit noisy but I had my earplugs and had one of the best sleeps of my life. The room we... More

Typical YHA with good value for money. The room we had was better than average as it was quite spacious with a double bed, bunk bed and it's own ensuite. There were three of us and we had plenty of space for suitcases without them being in the way. There are limited car parks which are allocated on a first... More

When I was looking for accommodation in Darwin I was pretty amazed by how bad the reviews were. Coming from SEAsia I would never have to pick anywhere under 4 stars so I was a bit unsure. However, I was pretty happy with the accommodation and I'm not really sure why there are so many bad reviews. The room was... More
