Great stay, loved this hostel
Stayed at this hostel with my sister for about a week, and loved it. Absolutely nothing to complain about. It was clean, and had free breakfast. The only thing that would make this hostel perfect is if it had free wifi, but their wifi is cheap, so didn't mind paying for it. The beds are very comfy! The girl at reception was really nice and helpful to us.
Great place for low budget
it was all right, stayed 10 days and could relax. Breakfast was excellent, also to have the pool. The location is very good, short walk down.
Clean, friendly staff, nice sociable environment, great location

Enjoyed our stay
Myself and my partner stayed in a double room in dingo moon for 3 weeks. The room was clean and comfy. We had a double bed with a single up top, a lamp and a fridge. We were in a noisy room right beside the communal area and found it difficult to sleep so we asked could we be moved in to a different double as we were going to be staying a while and we were working. They were extremely nice about it and said they changed a few things and we were able to be moved the following day to a quieter room. We also stayed in the banyan lodge up the road for 4 days but didnt like it as much as there was alot of ants in the room and we seen a cockroach! Didnt see anything like this in the dingo moon. Bins changed daily too. We would stay there again.
Dingo Moon Lodge is famous for its free, deluxe breakfast (fruits; pancakes; muffins; Nutella; spreads; toast; cereals with milk; juices; and of course coffee, hot chocolate, and tea -- if you're fast, you'll also get some croissants and yogurt). It's the best we have seen in Australian hostels so far! The hostel offers free laundry and comes with a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and the facilities are pretty clean for a fair price.The LocationThe house is pretty central -- just seven minutes to central transport station, the pubs and restaurants, and the supermarkets. The public transport is generally pretty poor in Darwin, but you can walk, as it's a small city. If you plan to visit the national parks, you need a car or to book a tour as the public transport can't drop you there. The next parks are five minutes away, along the seaside.Rooms and BathroomsOur eight-bed dorm room has enough space to organize your bags, with comfortable and stable beds, a mirror, fans, and air conditioning. The shared bathrooms are mostly clean but small; in the male bathroom, the hand-dry paper is empty most of the time. The beds have with fresh linen when you check in, but you need to bring your own towel.Common SpacesThe garden area contains sitting and sun-bathing possibilities as well as the pool (which is well used and clean) and the smoking area -- this is all just next to the kitchen. The kitchen is very central and nearly "outside" -- it's just big enough and is normally equipped (except for an oven). The dining area is next to the kitchen and gets a bit crowded in the evening. This hostel offers free laundry (after 2 p.m.)! There is also a room with book exchange and public PC you can pay to use. You can use their printer for a per-page charge. The Wi-Fi is provided by Global Gossip and you have to pay to use it.SummaryThis hostel is one of the most-used budget accommodation, but we can definitely recommend it. You get free laundry, and awesome breakfast, and good and clean facilities for your money. The owner is friendly and offers tours.
