Reviews of YHA Darwin (MOM Darwin)

  • "Loved my time in Moms Darwin, Location is perfect as you are in walking distance to everything Darwin has to offer. Staff are really friendly, and they host great events which made it easy for me to make friends with other backpackers. I stayed in a private room with my partner and we had lots of space with fast wifi to watch Netflix on our down time. The bar has a lovely summer vibe to it and the prices are cheaper than most places in Darwin. There is dj's on the weekend but music is always off by 11 so we were always able to get a good nights sleep. I'll be returning next dry season, recommend any and all backpackers to stop off here to make incredible memories" - Keely
