I love this hostel! I lived here for three months as I was working in the city. I found it to be a very clean and well maintained hostel. The kitchen is large and clean and well equipped. There is a lounge area and plenty of outdoor space to socialise. The laundry service is good. There are plenty of bathrooms...

This hostel is like an oasis! The rooms were modern and very clean. The pool and outside area had a laid-back relaxed atmosphere. It is not a party hostel which is nice! Plenty of cooking facilities as well as fridges and cupboard space in the kitchen. Also has a lounge/tv area. Laundry was kept very clean too. There is also...

The location is great, looked at the other hostel but none are in the town centre. The facilities are quiet good as well, they have laundry, kitchen and common area. Also they have a pool. It is good value for money, especially for a family. Staff are nice and it has a good atmosphere.

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of an organised tour in September 2016. The hostel is in a good location - you can walk into the centre of Alice Springs in a few minutes. We were checked in quickly and given a 4-bed dorm room on the ground floor. The rooms were good, not the biggest but equally not...

The hostel is brilliant, the facilities were excellent and everything was very clean. I particularly liked the lounge area it made you feel like you were at home! However it seemed that there was a lot of older people living in the hostel, I got the vibe that some worked for accommodation and some were just living there. The only...

Stayed 6 nights in a 4 bed male dorm'. Given a top bunk after requesting a lower one due to my advancing years but no luck. Bed clean and bedding more than adequate. Good shower toilet arrangements but 2 of the 4 in the main block had no lights, rendering them all but useless after dark. A/C not controllable from...

Its actually quite a nice YHA situated in the centre and small enough to have a familiar atmosphere. They have even a pool! But unfortunately, the room was veeeery hot during the night, with no aircon or fan. Also the mosquito net had big wholes. When you open a window, you can hear every noise from outside. Therefore, we didn't...

Hi Joanna, thanks for your feedback and sorry to hear that it was very hot. The aircon works but we had lots of rain over the Christmas period with very high humidity which is why it was still very hot. We've passed on your feedback on to management as part of our continual improvement program. Hope you had a great...

Traveling with grandson & 4WD. I use YHA's as Cheap accommodation. This one is well located, well set out, clean, well run, with a wide mix of nationalities. Good pool, laundry, kitchen & dining room. Lounge with WiFi and TV. Staff suggested I put the 4WD inside each night, as local petty thief is a problem, and we had gear...

This was my first hostel experience and I was really impressed. Great location, friendly staff, nice room, excellent kitchen facilities & clean and tidy bathroom with good showers. Wifi wasn't the best in the communal area so I paid for the premium service. Overall I enjoyed my stay & would recommend this hostel to others :-)

Thank Julie I
