    Roommates turned out to be quite and did get to sleep without any disturbance. Staff was ok not as helpful as other YHA's. Could have been a little cleaner.

    It was a nice stay. If you're going on an early tour to Uluru you'll be able to get some sleep and the pool feels wonderful when you return. Sometimes it was difficult to catch the staff at the desk or on the phone and I would have liked to have been able to prepay for my stay so the cost isn't on my mind later but overall it was a great place to crash.

    It's the complete package: great location beside the Todd River and close by the mall and the bus terminal, tour booking desk with pickup right outside, good strength WiFi, good map of the town, clean dorms and hot showers, friendly staff who know their business, historic building but with modern facilities including swimming pool. Why would you stay anywhere else?

    Good location. Really nice everyday movie screening. Unwashed quilts are disgusting.

    The best hostel I have stayed in so far in Australia. Since rating everything "very good" indiscriminately hints at a lazy reviewer I struggled hard to finally come up with a minor item. At really hot days the AC seems to be at its limits.

    Stayed in Alice Springs YHA for 2 nights (prior to and after the tour) was a good experience due to the friendliness of the staff. They made everything easy for you and was very helpful. Nothing more I can say about them but KUDOS!!! Highly recommended...

    Rooms are a pretty tight squeeze (we stayed in a four share and the only space was in between the bunks which is not a lot at all). Otherwise, it was clean, centrally located and cheap. Only stayed for one night so can't comment more than that but definitely worth the price you pay.

    Very nice hostel in a good location! the staff was friendly and happy to help! I was sleeping in one of the upstairs room and it was a bit cold at night, so I would advise to ask for an extra blanket if you are in one as well! appart from that, everything was perfect :) thanks

    Hi, We really enjoyed our stay at Alice Springs for 6 nights recently. Parking opposite was handy. The kitchen was great as was the atmosphere with friendly staff all round and interesting travellers and people to talk with. The showers were clean and hot water from the solar panels appreciated. I would recommend this place to anyone, young or old. Thanks to all there.
