    Accomodation in general seems to be overpriced in Darwin. The YHA is probably the best deal one can get. The small kitchen is well-equipped; rooms are clean, functional and somewhat spacious. The staff we were in contact with is helpful and mostly friendly.

    Our dorms were a little grubby, could do with fresh curtains. Linen is supplied, we had to go back and ask for towels for showers. Bathroom was just OK,floor was pretty much wet all the time due to poor drainage from shower. Kitchen was exceptionally well stocked with crockery & cutlery, great for preparing own food Close to Supermarkets, shops restaurants Would definitely stay at YHA again.

    Great hostel just far enough away from party central. Stayed in four female dorm and my critique would be lockers for luggage needed. Also stayed in private double - which was perfect. Probably not do good for disabled travellers as stairs to most rooms. Overall great, peaceful, clean stay

    I was really positively surprised! I booked a 6 bed dorm and the atmosphere was great! Own bathroom in the dorm was just perfect! The location is just right, not directly in the 'party-zone', but close enough to walk in less than 5 min. The staff was really helpful organising day trips and with general questions too! Thank you!

    I was having a bad start to the day until I checked in at Yha, Max gave me a free bottle of water and sat down and talked to me about my troubles. The whole staff is very friendly and helpful, the kitchen needs work and the rooms get crowded but overall nice hostel in the heart of Darwin.

    I am a big fan of YHA hostels in general, but that one is not the best - seems like all I like about other YHAs is missing here - staff don´t look like they enjoy to help travellers, common areas are neither sufficiently big nor welcoming and they are closed early, no lockers, chair or tables in rooms, no nice smoking area, no recycling bins in the kitchen... Having "private" bathroom at room could feel luxurious when there is two of you, not six - especially when there are no common facilities. Swimming pool is not going to fix it, location between kitchen, those few places to eat and noisy sport bar is not really happily chosen. Plus warning signs suspecting you from "bad behaviour" everywhere and the fact that it was the most expensive and also the most unfriendly YHA I ve been to - never more!

    Basic accommodation in a location close to the action but far enough away to not be too noisy. Good having a pool, but some bathroom features needed repairing.
