    Really enjoyed our stay. All the staff were super friendly and were always more than willing to do anything for you. The hostel is perfectly situated for pubs, restaurants and other entertainment. If you're thinking about staying here - don't think - go for it, you won't be disappointed!

    Overpriced, but ok otherwise. Could do with some TLC like a fresh coat of paint, but that seems to be like most of Darwin buildings. Quiet and not a party hostel thankfully. Really needs a bigger kitchen. TV Room next to room 32 is a good escape. Cameras around the place so good security from that aspect.

    I could not recommend staying here. I checked-out the same day. This was mainly due to the state of the room I was staying in. I have stayed at many YHA's before but could not recommend this one!

    We had a comfortable 4 dorm bedroom with a bathroom attached to it. Because the room was not fully booked, we were allowed to share it with two.Also, we got to check in a bit earlier than usual because we had come in at an extremely early flight. Very friendly and helpful staff!

    For a hostel, quite quiet at night & like most hostels here is right in the centre of town, but lacks some basic necessities such as somewhere to sit and read or use the internet.Charging $4/hr(wifi) on top of $33/night is a bit much especially after coming from Asia. If you have a car then you have a place to go but for most hostellers this would not be an option. Full of workers not b'packers.

    The only good thing was the location, which is why I booked this hostel. Thankfully it was for only one night, I've backpacked throughout the UK and Europe and I've never encountered this level of filth before. The room was a disgrace.

    The staff were on the whole indifferent. Wifi was expensive and often cut out. Despite being a YHA member I was charged the full price. Unable to check in early despite the hostel being half empty and the same upon check out. I work as a journalist so I was not impressed with my stay here. I believe there are better and cheaper places to stay.

    Quality of facility was all depending on the room I stayed. Some were good in condition whereas some are old and and generating too much noise. Air conditioners were old and noisy, took 2 days to cool down room.

    Had a great time. Excellent service and value for money. And I return to Australia, probably when the price of beer is cheaper, I will certainly be re-visiting you again. Many thanks, especially to Karen on the front desk Michael

    -No Lockers in the Rooms. - no space in the rooms. - Bar in same building (noisy, smoke) + nice TV Room (like cinema) There was just one friendly STAFF (she was dark-skinned), she was always greeting by entering or leaving the hostel on front door and she was giving you a "you are very welcome" feeling. the other STAFF member mostly just watching the people (coming/leaving the hostel)...or didn´t answer if i greet them. I sadly have to say, this is the whorst YHA that i have visit in the last 5 Months.
