Located in the heart of the Northern Territory's tropical capital, Darwin YHA Backpackers Hostel is the friendly, quieter option on popular Mitchell Street in the city's entertainment precinct. New ensuite bedrooms all with air-conditioning, plus outdoor pool and BBQ area, internet and WiFi. The hostel's tour desk can help you find the best backpacker tours and travel options to the Top End's Tiwi Islands, Nitmiluk, Kakadu National Park and the Arnhem Land Aboriginal Reserve.
Darwin YHA Backpackers Hostel is a great base for 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. Darwin YHA Backpackers Hostel is located in the heart of a backpacker's nightlife haven with pubs, nightclubs, outdoor cafes, cinemas and restaurants. The Globetrotters Bar next door will keep you entertained until the early hours.
