Stayed at the YHA in Darwin for about 10 days, It's in a good spot, very close to everything but not on top of it all.. Air con in the rooms is quality and every room has its own bathroom as opposed to big communal bathrooms which was handy. Such a friendly atmosphere in the place, Jay on reception is... More

We stayed in a 4 bed dorm, ensuite bathrooms, and have nothing to complain about. Easily walkable to anything you would need in Darwin (not a very big place at all). They were responsive to all our questions and helped give good advice about safety and things to do. Wifi in the lobby only, they have a pool area that... More

One of the nicer hostels in Darwin. Rooms and bathrooms could be cleaner. We went two days without anyone cleaning our room and bathroom... Actually I'm not even sure they ever did. It is a quiet hostel and the kitchen isn't too bad though. Good location. They give you one tiny sheet so ask for a blanket, you'll freeze with... More

Why is de manager such a grumpy person? That question kept coming back. Hospitality should be fun! Not a weight on your shoulder!? A smile on your a face doesn't cost a thing. Sorry, but one person (in management) can ruin a experience. Honestly, the rooms were clean, there was free wifi and the kitchen was organized and clean.

No party, quite even if a lot of people stay here. Friendly staff, free WiFi in tv room and also available in some rooms, you can get premium WiFi for a better connexion. Housekeeper every day. The kitchen is not that big and there is no table to eat next to the kitchen but a bit further. Nice swimming pool... More

After a poor stay at Dingo Moon across the road i moved here for 2 x days into a double/private room. The American guy at reception was so helpful and friendly, the room was clean and spacious with everything you would expect to have in a hostel. Good pool, well stocked kitchen and the clientele are really nice here. If... More

I like to stay at a YHA if possible. This one in Darwin is very well run, very clean and very safe. The staff are excellent. I have stayed in accommodation by myself in my own room or have shared in the 4 bed women's dorm. Both are comfortable. I stayed recently for 9 days and stayed in both lots... More

located a short walk away from the busier centre it provides you what you need. staff is unfriendly. rooms are smelly and the bathrooms not clean at all. I have been to many hostels and YHA all over Australia, but this is nothing more than alright.

I stayed here for about 5 days and quite enjoyed it, but I think improvements can be made. The friendly, helpful staff and location are fantastic, like any YHAs. The building itself could use some freshening up. It looks a bit junky in places with things lying around outside or cluttered looking, however the pool area is very nice and... More
