good level of cleanliness in both the pool and accommodation areas. I found Jodie welcoming, friendly and helpful when I had issues with the wi-fi. Having read some of the reviews I was pleasantly surprised. Would I go back again......Yes

Just an overnight stay! Quiet comfortable and a good night sleep. Great staff in Reception. Mega friendly and nothing was too much. Will come again. Recommend people stay here when visiting Alice Springs if they dont want to spend too much. Only gripe are the old Mod Cons ie ACs etc.

Staff were helpful, female dorm room and attached bathroom were clean. Only stayed overnight but had no complaints. I had asked for a female dorm room but when I got there, I was allocated to a mixed dorm but I'm not sure if this was the fault of haven or the tour company (way outback) that organised my accommodation. But...

Ok so I am not one to EVER stay at a backpackers, but thought I would go out of my comfort zone- in saying that, I did get a single room as I don't like sharing. After reading a couple of negative reviews I was a bit hesitant, but thought to myself if it's that bad, I can always book...

Really good hostel, very clean and provides coffee/tea and toast for breakfast. Have to get up pretty early for various tours (tours leave at 5am or 6am) so light sleepers get woken up alot if not leaving on a tour. Most people are there for a tour, so its pretty quiet around the place during the day.

Haven backpackers cannot be faulted. The rooms are excellent, very clean and spacious. The staff is out of this world and nothing is ever too much. They know the area well and besides being very helpful are genuine people. Personally I think this is the best place to stay in Alice.
