Staff were a bit odd, sometimes welcoming sometimes not. Pretty boring hostel And very hard to meet people. Good if u want a quieter stay and are looking for work. I wouldnt recomend if travelling on your own and wanting to make friends. Also my room mates never locked the door and it was always left open!

this hostel was great if you wanted to meet people and make friends as it has communal seating areas including a massive bbq, a pool and a tv room. although people liked to party here ,it wasn't a party hostel per sae. the rooms were good and pretty clean. the kitchen is small but has everything you need and the bbq area has some hobs too. staff were great and although the hostel has its rules, they aren't there to restricts the backpacker. i would stay here again for sure and even recommend it!


The room was clean and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful. With the hostel being so close to the heart of the city it was very handy. I enjoyed my short stay and would recommend the Darwin YHA to anyone who likes the atmosphere of a hostel.


A few nice staff members that were very helpful. Overall I liked the place. They cleaned rooms each day. Internet was down while there. You need to pay for Internet in hostels in Darwin anyway.

I usually enjoying stay at yha hostels but this was a big let down. I was sharing a room with a functioning alcoholic who was getting wasted every night spilling food everywhere and leaving the door unlocked when going to sleep and leaving the room. The room and shower were dirty. Shower door was broken. The lounge and dining room where unpleasant (poor furniture, set up, decor) lacking atmosphere. Wifi was down for 2/3 days and I was refused a refund. Friendly staff. Comfy beds.


No lockers Good location Nice pool
