Good: Excellent location at center of town. Can use the facilities of neighbouring YHA like the kitchen and TV room.
Bad: Poor higene with cockroaches! Rooms quite small, cannot open big suitcases inside the room.

Hi Cheng t, Thank you for your review of Value Inn Darwin. In a tropical environment we do have pest luike cockroaches and ants sometimes come in from outside. We have a number of strategies to try and combat these issues including bringing in an external contractor to ensure our pest control is completed. After been advised of a couple of issues within rooms we put rooms offline to get them fumigated and we hope that this has resolved the issue. We appreciate your feedback and hope that you enjoyed the rest of your travels around the top end. Regards The team at VINN

There are so many little problems with this place. They all add up to a poor valud experiance. Sticky carpets, old fottings in the bathrooms, side ways showers that dont spray down. Ants. Windows screwed shut so there is no relief from the mouldy smell. I would pfefer to be bush camping with my swag. Oh and shared facilities with the yha melaluca hostel next door. Party on.!

Bed bugs in one of the beds. Smelly mouldy room. 1950s style fittings & fixtures. They haven't changed bed covers since 1970s. Cheap? Sure but at what cost? UnCivilised living. Accommodation on the Gold coast Qld at the same price is normal 2018 western civilised living.

Hi Helen M Thank you for your review of Value Inn, Darwin. We were disappointed to read your comments in relation to our centrally located budget accommodation. I am unsure when you stayed but we have not had any reports of bed bugs in the rooms so it makes it very hard to respond to the review that you have written. We are always happy to receive constructive criticism and if we were advised that you had an issue during your stay we could of tried to resolve it. I hope that you enjoyed your stay in the NT. Regards Sheena Matthews General Manager

Unfortunately, the only positive of this 'hotel' is its location in the city.

We had two rooms. The rooms smelled mouldy and there was hair on the bed and in the shower. The walls were cracked and the aircon looked black like it had never been cleaned. The worst of all was on the second night, when we returned to the room to find big and small big cockroaches EVERYWHERE! On the bed, on the walls, under the luggage, on the fridge, in the bathroom. When I went to reception to ask for a solution, the man said 'you chose to come here and even the Hilton would have this problem, welcome to Darwin'. We were then given an insect spray to use before we sleep (!) and the room would be checked the next day. Of course, nothing happened. The cleaners were nice, 'housekeeping' was a change over of towels if you asked for it so don't be fooled into thinking this is a hotel. It is definitely a very low budget backpacker's.

Would never stay here again!

Hi Anthasia I Thank you for your review we are disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Regarding the cockroaches I understand that this can be very distressing to visitors, invariably however, the cockroaches come in from outside and are not due to uncleanliness or a lack of pest control, they are simply one of those things that can be very hard to manage in a property with open doors and windows. Value Inn has a comprehensive pest control programme with a pest control company who treat the property regularly and when rooms are identified as having problems a secondary treatment is also done.

I've stayed in this hotel three times now. Each time has been at the end of a long cruise in PNG or Indonesia. As such, I only stay here for the day while waiting for a night flight back home to Bali. The cost is reasonable for what you get.

The rooms are clean with AC and en suite. There's a small refrigerator, a little TV mounted on the wall, a comfortable bed. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. This place can be a little noisy during the day (I've never stayed overnight so I don't know how it is at night), but that has never really bothered me.

For me the main things that I like about the hotel are the location and the price. The location is great; it's right in the center of the backpacker area so there are many restaurants around, as well as a few good bars that have smoking areas for us smokers. It's just a short walk to the shops for last minute souvenir buying.

This is my place to stay when I have a short stay in Darwin.
