Alice Springs YHA is built within the grounds of an historic outdoor movie theatre, in a great location in the centre of this atmospheric outback town. Our hostel has a big outdoor movie screen showing movies nightly under the stars. All rooms are air conditioned, and there is a BBQ, swimming pool and tour desk offering a full range of discount backpacker tours to see the West MacDonnell Ranges, Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon.
Base yourself in this centrally located hostel and explore Australia’s famous outback.
Family Rooms: To book a family room rate, there must be at least one child under 18 and 1-2 adults; otherwise this special room rate will be adjusted to the usual adult prices with the difference payable on arrival.
