  • Great YHA. We loved the $6 breakfast kits that include a tea or coffee with toast and cereal and a cereal bar. Great idea! Friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend.

    With hotels so expensive in Darwin a hostel is a good alternative. We shared room with three others. Room was quiet and room mates considerate. Bed was comfortable. No towels or toiletries provided and no extra pillows. No room safe but a safe at rec...

    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.

    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.
