    Staff friendly and helpful but building interior badly needs refurbishing. eg shower nozzle kept coming free from pipe. 'Hot' water temperature fluctuated between ambient and warm. Bedroom and corridors smelt stale. Carpets stained, door frames rusting, paint in poor condition etc

    To much like Spring Break for me. Probably staff was good 60/40. Probably depends on what one is looking for. I believe the staff sets the tone of a facility.

    First time at the new Darwin YHA location and I think I prefer the former location better. If only because it's just that little further away from the noisy nightspots that bang on loudly to all hours of the morning on Fri/Sat/Sun. Lovely staff though and quite comfortable. I'd nevertheless stay again despite the noise.

    The air conditioner was too loud and disturbed our sleep. The mattress was not comfortable. Usually I don't mind, but the amount of money that you spend it's just not worth it.

    I enjoyed the room and my stay. The only complaint would be that the television did not work very well. I could not get the volume down and was forced to turn it off completely. Otherwise the room was tidy and the staff very friendly. I would stay here again. The location was perfect although a little noisy but is to be expected staying in the party area of Darwin.

    Customer Reviews on yha.com.au

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on yha.com.au, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
