    Kitchen was well organized and clean. Nice living area and outside facilities with a pool. Only 2 outlets for charging in the room. Individual lights at each bed added convenience. No charge for left luggage.

    Great hostel. In the centre of Alice Spring so really easy to visit town from it. The room, bathroom and common place are really clean and nice. You have a full bathroom for yourself witch is convenient. You have to pay extra for wifi but it's really...
