While I only stayed in youth shack for 5 days, I must say it was a great experience. The beds were very comfortable, the rooms were cleaned daily and mopped and the wash rooms were always clean and tidy. I didn't use the kitchen facalities but from what I saw they were quite good.
Even though our room was above the bar, I didn't really have much complaints about the noise, as whereever you stay in Darwin you are bound to hear the night life of the strip.
Great place and would happily stay here again
