Beautiful oasis in Alice Spring with a nice and cozy garden full of surprises and funny things everywhere. Nice and spacious kitchen, and a bbq area in the back yard. The owner was very helpful and had lots of tips to things to do in the area.

Loved staying in this unique place! It has a little hippie flair that I loved very much! All doors and walls and facilities are painted differently. The outside area is inviting and you can spend time there as a group, meet new people and also stay on your own and just enjoy your time. The owner is German and very...

A bit out of town (approx. 10 minutes away from the centre), this place offers nice dorms (spacious, clean), good but few bathrooms (good showers). The staff is super friendly and helpful. Wifi is stable and fast and the whole garden as a common-area is beautiful. The whole place really feels nice. Security was a bit low (no lockers). Overall...

We loved the Alices Secret. It has a cozy little garden with trees and hanmocks to enjoy. It also has a pool which was nice considering the temperatures. We had a double room. It was small but had everything we needed. The bed was really cozy too. There is a large kitchen and also a BBQ area. Seb the owner...

I booked this place for the 4 of us for our final night in Alice Springs after a week of camping in the outback. We were delighted by the place and excited of finding a quiet hostel. It is definitely quiet and you can be at peace there. I had booked the Betty's bus as a surprise to my partner,...

Very cool owner, i had the chance to speak with people that were staying for several months to work at Alice Springs to finance their trips around Australia and got nice tips about what and what not to do.

Alice's Secret is a great place to stay in Alice Springs. The place has awesome decoration all over the place (laser-lit backyard at nigt looks amazing).

A really groovy, hippy like hostel, but without the drugs. Thank god ! I slept in a trailor for the first time in a long time. Something I would need to get used of, but bareable. Sleeeping with two others in the smallish trailor was also Interesting. The big TV was nice, as I hadn't watched much in 6 months...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Discover why 'Alice's Secret' has been recommended by Lonely Planet as 'too good to stay a secret' (2006). Seb welcomes you to Alice's Secret Travellers Inn, a cozy, QUIET and relaxed hostel nestled in the middle of Australia's red centre. This hostel continues to be "a work in progress", next up is an OUTSIDE BBQ AREA, for that true Aussie outside cooking experience! Recently added are our new "deluxe" rooms ALPINE HUT & BUS BETTY,also every room has it's own character. Checkout the new chill-out corner (numberplates are welcome anytime:-) covered with a shade sail outside the existing kitchen to keep us cooler in summer in drier when it rains (which happened a LOT the past 12 months). The smallest hostel in 'the Alice', we are tucked away on a quiet street just opposite arid bush land and near our Botanic Gardens, yet only a five minute walk from the town centre. Being the smallest & quietest, we pride ourselves on our cleanliness and friendliness and we are happy to give you that extra bit of attention you will miss in the bigger places. Alice's Secret is an old fashioned communal hostel with shared facilities, that means lots of places to get together and share experiences with fellow travellers. Communal facilities include a fully equipped self catering kitchen; cozy TV/video lounge with A HUGE COLLECTION OF VIDEOS/DVDs for those days when you just want to be a lounge lizard; and a spacious and green backyard complete with bbq, sparkling saltwater swimming pool, fruit trees and abundant birdlife. Recently updated is our CHAT ROOM, with a cosy sofa and games. Guests are also encouraged to make good use of our in-house didgeridoos, guitar and piano. All our rooms are clean and comfortable, air conditioned in summer and heated in winter. You can choose between dormitory, single, twin or double rooms and we have GIRLS ONLY ROOM. All linen and duvets are provided. Our office hours is 10am-2pm, then 4pm-7pm...(Check-in 12PM-2PM & 4PM-7PM) If you arrive outside these hours, just leave your luggage in our CHAT ROOM, and enjoy the garden, the birds and the pool... You will find tea/coffee in the kitchen, feel free to help yourself (-:Please note our CHECKOUT time is 10:30. Check-ins AFTER 7pm is by PRIOR ARRANGEMENT ONLY! NOT A PARTY HOSTEL! NO LATE NOISE! Intoxicated guests will be asked to leave. No visitors at any time, sorry! We have a 48 hour cancellation policy, in other words we need your cancellation IN WRITING by 12pm ACST, 2 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR CHECK-IN DATE (we are SMALL, so this is necessary). Otherwise we charge you for the first night of your booking in accordance with HOSTELWORLD'S POLICY! ... more   less
