Location, staff and easy check in and check out.
It was great rooms were deceit, and staff were helpful. Really appreciated that I was able to check in and check out at anytime due to early morning flights.

Darwin is an interesting place!
location, pool area, reception and travel info
Youth Shack was an interesting place. Very noisy, party place for young people obviously as the name suggests. Great location. They couldnt provide me with a quieter room on the opposite side of the party area even though I asked for it months before when I booked. This was a little disappointing. Kitchen area was not equipped and not really clean so I didnt attempt to use it. Bathrooms got a bit grubby as the day went on and hotel is in need of a bit of repair. Great location though.

Expensive noisy with poor shower facilities
Centrally located
The biggest single problem is the noisy, drunken behaviour of guests during the night - shouting, screaming and banging on doors in the corridors is a regular occurrence and there were fights some nights. Be advised: some male guests sneak females inside in the 4 bed dorm rooms or as some do leave the room sometimes at 2 or 3 am. Not good.

Affordable and friendly in a prime location
Price, atmosphere, location
Staff were very friendly and helpful, live band was playing in the outdoor/ bar area when we arrived and the atmosphere was great. Bedding was ok, adequate for the price. Fast check out, and in walking distance from many bars and resturants.

Noisy but reasonable
Location, access to airport, access to activities
Lots of very young, very drunk and very noisy travellers at this hotel. Not recommended if you are looking for somewhere quiet to stay but great location and facilities. The staff are friendly and helpful. The pool area is nice during the day until people get home from work and after they've all passed out drunk at night. If you are a young party animal this is the place for you!

bad
just location
It's the worst hostel I have been in the world. rude staff, dirty kitchen, small room and poor bed. The only good thing is the location. However there a few hostel nearby. Definitely not recommend.

Friendly staff, great location, excellent pool
Had a great stay at the Youth Shack - staff were fantastic, kitchen was huge and there is a great lounge area near the pool. Certainly stay here again!
