    We had a good clean room in this hostel and we found the staff were helpful and friendly. At first I thought the kitchen was a little small but it seemed to work fine for everyone their so that was probably just some initial prejudice of mine. The hostel is located within easy walking distance of the main necessities such as food, drink, transport and entertainment.

    Darwin YHA not up to the high standard of Adelaide but generally OK. Staff though, excellent. Couldn't fault their helpfulness in delivering and bringing down my heavy suitcase for me from the second floor. Many thanks.

    The hostel works well enough but there's not much common space, so the kitchen and eating areas are often very crowded.

    Some of the hostel staff were very friendly. The kitchen facilities were very good, but the kitchen wasn't very clean. Expensive hostel for the service provided. Lots of extra charges for things.

    Nice pool area. Small kitchen but not too much of a problem- just gets quite busy! Hot and stuffy rooms (even in winter!). Great stay - loved Darwin!

    More far away of the center than other backpackers (even if its only 4-5 min walk) And more expensive as Well! Safety is really poor : no lockers in the room (You CAN let some valuables at the reception but its not practical!), food have been stolen from me! Seem That There is no video in the food storage room or nobody Watch it. No hot shower in the evening! (Why???!) No covered provided!

    Feels a bit more like a motel than a hostel, with rooms being placed along a balcony and communal rooms located quite separately, but the room was clean, bathroom quite pretty, staff friendly and location terrific. Coles and other shops just around the corner, but still no disturbing noise from pubs outside.

    No lockers in the rooms. Terrible aircon which makes some beds freezing and some too hot. Dripping aircons in all the communal areas. Found a dead cockroach in my bed when I removed my sheets. Decent pool area but the kitchen is tiny. I've been to eight other YHAs and always been pleased with the standard but this one was just disappointing.

    I just LOVED the shower in the rooms! It's detachable shower heads, so you can get a proper good shower and rinse! Heaps good water pressure too! Super friendly staff, you can harass them as best as you can and they'll still smile and say hello every time you walk past :) Lovely BBQ/ beer garden area Only thing, I wish there were another fridge in the kitchen. Cuz that was a bit full
