    Staff friendly and helpful in explaining local environment. Very laid back which seems the way in Darwin.

    No lockers... was kinda shocked by this! Unacceptable in a shared dorm no matter how safe you think it is! Key card system rather than keys and a password would be better too (like most YHAs) Staff gave good advice but I felt like a hindrance to them sometimes.

    Positives: Nice location, nice pool. The door to the en-suite in our 4-share dorm did not lock. There were ants all over, both in the room and in the kitchen. The kitchen is *way* too small for a hostel that size, is not very clean, and is not air conditioned. There is nowhere indoors to eat your meals unless you bring it up to your room, and not enough space outside to sit and eat.

    Very good equiped shared kitchen, nice pool area without plugs for laptop though, no smoking and drinking area at pool, smoking area is more like a carpark and very loud due to the neighbours water pump or so, ok rooms steril and funktional, overall clean but without an atmosphere, staff mistly doesnt make u feel welcome and obviously see it just as a work place.. maybe recommendable for families

    Darwin hostel is close to food and bars. Tours are well publicised and pick up is at the door. The local buses are nearby and good value. The pool is good, relaxing, as is the BBQ area. Kitchen and laundry are also fine. Our ensuite room was comfortable and quiet. Thanks to the friendly staff who were always helpful. As a YHA life member, travelled extensively Darwin is one of the good stays. Ta.
