I loaded film in the completely dark darkroom of a daily newspaper for 15.5 years. The film looked no better than the film I loaded in the near-dark darkrooms I had before or that I've had since.
I've always tried to make my home darkrooms as light-tight as possible but it's impossible to do so when the room is also used for other purposes and other people are involved. My current darkroom is in a tiny bathroom and it leaks light around the door. I really can't tape the door closed and as long as the light isn't enough to fog the film, I can live with it.
