    It's OK, I only stayed for one night. I had booked the 16 bed dorm, and it was fine, although a bit messy but what else can you expect. The lock for the room had actually broken, so it wasn't particularly safe. There are lockers in the room though that was good. The staff were ok, relatively informative and helpful. One person had a go at me for having a drink in the sofa area, when it was actually an empty water bottle and that could've been dealt with a lot better. Location is excellent & wifi is OK.

    There was a school group ( teenaged and 2 teachers/supervisors) who kept me awake until midnight and woke me again at 5 am. The teenaged were running on the deck and knocking on walls the echoed through the the building. They were also yelling. No one from the hostel noticed or told them that after 10 was quiet time. I went and asked the teacher to try and control them at 11:30. It was a horrible experience.

    One of the best hostels I have stayed in in terms of cleanliness and facilities. Very conveniently​ located within Alice Springs. Excellent for the price.

    Great service, clean room, clean kitchen, and a good night's sleep! Only complaint was the showers were a little on the cold slide.

    Great hostel, stayed at a 16-bed dorm, but it didn't feel like there were that many there. The location is perfect, kitchen was well equipped and nice, and the bathrooms were clean and big.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
