On the main drag, decent size rooms. Clean bathrooms and nice large spotless kitchen. Arrived in the early hours - not a problem - tours - not a problem. Swimming pool had clean water in it although needs a lick of paint. Would go back.

Lovely clean rooms, lovely staff, free wifi. What more could you want from a hostel? No bar on site and a good kitchen. Also a great pool and other guests are very friendly and considerate. Great location away from the noise of Mitchell street but still close enough to the fun!

I visited the YHA in 2004 while it was still located closer to the centre. They have now moved to an older building at the end of the street. Location is quieter and lots of parking around... but I was disappointed by the hostel. The old building was spacy, modern, clean, etc. The new hostel is very run down looking.... More

Great budget place to stay, staff super friendly, knowledgable and helpful. We stayed 3 nights in a room for 2 with bathroom. Clean and quiet. Good pool and kitchen and laundry. Would stay again. We are a retired couple and enjoy being around young people.

Stayed for 2 nights in a private room. Good location and quiet, clean and organised kitchen! Very expensive for what you get. Room was very average, ac didn't work properly, fridge smelled but bathroom was fine. Paid extra for premium internet but it only worked in reception. Staff was helpful and friendly!

“Located on Mitchell Street – Was convenient to all activities, walking distance to restaurants and public transport, supermarkets. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. Limited car parking area which was always full. Had no trouble with bed bugs in double room with ensuite.

I recently stayed here for 2 nights in a 6 bed female dorm. Max on check in was great, very friendly and helpful and even told me places I should visit whilst I was in Darwin. The hostel is away from the noise of Mitchell Street but within 5-10 minutes you can drink and dance the night away. The kitchen... More

I stayed in a 4 bedroom with ensuite bathroom. I found the bathroom and sleeping area to be tidy and comfortable. The staff at the desk was easy-going and helpful. Great location in the CBD. I didn't use the kitchen so I can't comment on that. I would stay here again.

I needed last minute overnight accommodation, so I thought being a YHA and in Darwin, this should be a good place, however I should have read the reviews. Price was good, rooms were ok, Beds were comfortable and I got a good sleep, however finding out during the next day that I had received over 100 bed bug bites which... More

Very good standard throughout, most of the staff were friendly and helpfully, one guy made it feel like you were bothering him by saying hello though. The room was a very good size, A/C didn't work properly and when we asked if it was working we were told yeah that's how it's ment to be... We'd have been better off... More

YHA_Backpacker, Front Office Manager at Darwin YHA, responded to this review

Hi Adam YHA appreciates your review and feedback. The A/C in the room should definitely have been sufficient and it will be investigated further and maintenance called in. If you have problems with issues not being addressed, please always ask to speak to the hostel manager who will act on it. Thanks again. More
