Welcome to our hostel

Located in the heart of the Northern Territory’s tropical capital, Darwin YHA – Melaleuca on Mitchell, has all the facilities to keep you cool in the heat. Grab a drink at the bar, laze by one of two pools or chill out under the waterfall spa.

The rooms are spacious and have essential air-conditioning and fans to stop you from ‘going troppo’! Choose from multi-share (dormitory) or private rooms (private rooms are located in an annexe - the Value Inn).

Play volley-ball in the pool, throw a few darts, or kick back and watch sports and music videos on the 4-metre wide TV screen. The deck has a huge self-catering kitchen and the reception and tour desk are open 24 hours.

You’ll be in the hub of the city’s entertainment precinct, within easy walking distance of Darwin’s must-do activities, including Crocosaurus Cove and the legendary Mindl Beach Sunset Markets.

The hostel's tour desk can book you on the best backpacker tours of the NT, including Litchfield and Kakadu National Parks; Nitmiluk (Katherine) Gorge; Arnhem Land Aboriginal Reserve, and the Tiwi Islands.

O albergue precisa de obras está um pouco degradado. O seu responsável David não é simpático e quando cheguei estava com roupa suja. Não existem armários e as fechaduras parecem frágeis.

Oldfashioned, aber OK. Sauber und leise. Dorms mit eigenem Bad, Fußboden: Teppich, Ausstattung: Doppelbetten aus Metall, Kühlschrank, Haken. Free Wifi (an der Rezeption) Lage: sehr zentral. 5 Min bis Coles oder Woolworths und 10 Min bis Waterfront.

Excellente auberge. Dortoirs super confortables. Un reproche, mais commun à toutes les auberges d'Australie : pas de petit déjeuner. Comme c'est dommage !

Mag be a big box for the luggage. Everything was lying on the Floor. Make a 4 dorm instead of 6-dorm.

für europäische Verhältnisse ist die JH sehr teuer : EZ ca 85 € - die AC war sehr schwach und nur bedingt funktionstüchtig, die Bettwäsche ungebügelt - alles ein bisschen alt und abgestanden - aber zentrale Lage und nette Atmosphäre
