    Darwin YHA is in a great location- close to the bars, restaurants and shops, but just far enough to be quiet. The staff are all really friendly and helpful. I stayed 2 nights, left my luggage to go on a 3 day Kakadu tour, then returned for a third ...

    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 the...

    Darwin YHA is a great base for exploring the spectacular World Heritage Kakadu National Park, the magnificent waterfalls at Litchfield National Park, the Tiwi Islands and the Arnhem Land Aboriginal Reserve. Darwin enjoys a warm tropical climate all year. The dry season (May to November) is the cooler time of the year in the 'Top End' and allows for excellent outdoor activities like the Mindil Beach Markets.


    There is plenty to do after dark. The hostel is located in the heart of Darwin's backpacker nightlife with many pubs, nightclubs, outdoor cafes, cinemas and restaurants to try. The Globetrotters Bar next door will keep you entertained until the early hours.
