We stayed for 3 nights then travelled around before staying a further 3 nights. Given the rather low ratings of all the hostels in Darwin, but also low vacancy rate, we reluctantly booked all 6 nights before our trip. We need not have worried. We loved the Banyan View. It is quiet family friendly accommodation. Our 3 kids were welcomed...

Stayed there for three days. The hostel has a great location just a few minutes away from the city center. The receptionists was helpful and kind. The room was clean, but the bathroom could be more clean. In the afternoon the bin to paper towels was full and in the morning, there was towels all over. I would like to...

Banyan View Lodge is operated by the YWCA of Darwin which I like to support because of the great work they do in the community. There are many things about Banyan which make it a great place to stay. It is in a quiet section of Mitchell Street and the staff are generally very friendly and helpful. The kitchen facilities...

An excellent budget accommodation with friendly staff and good quality service. The room was clean and the lodge was within walking distance of local amenities. Swimming pool was a welcome relief from the heat. Recommended.

The room was very basic, but clean. They only had unisex bathrooms. You need to wear shoes in the showers, but otherwise everything was clean. If you are just looking for a clean place to stay overnight and aren't looking for anything at all fancy, this is a good place.

I stayed in the Banyan View lodge in the (quiet) wet season in January 2012. As everyone says, that's the quiet end of town, but when it's only 10 minutes walk to the centre it doesn't really matter. The building is on three floors with the corridor on each and a small lounge at the end of each floor. There's...

Stayed he for a few days at the start of a 3 month trip. Did book a room for myself. Rooms and facilities are very basic, but clean. And as it is at the top end of Mitchell Street you are away from the rowdy end, so nice and quiet at night.
