I have nothing negative to say about this hostel. It was everything I expected it to be for a youth hostel. Good comparable rates, clean, dorm accommodation, friendly fellow travelers, accommodating staff. I showed up day of and got one of the last available beds because it was busy season and I hadn't prebooked. I went up to the desk... More

Second stay at this YHA. Good value close to everything in Darwin. I stayed in a private room with a double and a bunk, ensuite, small fridge and tea and coffee making. Place was being renovated last time I stayed and in a much better state this time than last. Room had a ceiling fan and an air conditioner. I'd... More

We stayed here for a few nights in mid September. The hostel is located on the main street (Mitchell) but a short walk from the centre so it stays quiet. We stayed in a 6 bed dorm which was fine, air con worked well and it was clean enough. The kitchen is very small and quite dirty, there were a... More

I've stayed here a few times and like that it's located on Mitchell St but away from the hustle and bustle of the pubs. It's close enough to walk to everything which is good. The rooms are clean and there is a fridge in the rooms. There is a pool and a kitchen, TV room and computers in the foyer.... More

Small, standard YHA facility. Great, safe atmosphere with helpful staff. The rooms were great and the eating area around the pool was a great place to 'hang out'. Short walk to town and regular bus available.

Average, clean and quiet non-party hostel with good location in Darwin CBD. There is a nice pool available for guests. Only down side is that WiFi is poor and costs. Overall; a bit pricey though, but I'd stay again.

Positives : Close to city centre with plenty of restaurants and bars at a walk able distance Room was neat and clean. Negative : The family room Room # 17 where we were put up didnt have proper cross ventilation. Good enough to spend a night. Neutral : Unlike most YHAs which have a common shower but this place didnt.

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
