    Great location. Wide range of tours. Excellent facilities. Helpful Staff. As a tip, I would suggest if being picked up for a tour or airport transfer, stand on the corner as the buses will pull in at the drop-off area outside the Aurora hotel not out the front of YHA as there is no parking available. Very easy to miss your connection.

    Kitchen was well stocked. TV kept low which I appreciated. Not much space in fridge but this is a perennial problem. Great that there is a freezer.

    It's a nice hostel in the middle of the city so your everywhere fast. It has a outdoor movie and sometimes free pancakes (they where delicious)

    It is a great hostel in a good location. The open air movie evey night is nice. I would definitely recommend it. I booked The Rock Tour package (3 days/2nights tour + night before & after at YHA), would totally recomment that, it was awesome!

    Loved its location. Perfect for wanders around. The bathrooms are a little old and fraying. Rooming, was fine. Only 3 beds out of 8 had bed lights which made it difficult when leaving early in the morning. Great kitchen, nice vibe.

    The staff are great - friendly and helpful. The activities organised are great and the hostel is very well equipped and so clean. I would recommend the Alice Springs YHA and will come back. I would like to see a removable ramp Into the kitchen to make the premises completely wheelchair accessible.

    I enjoyed the friendly conversation of my roommates especially. From France and U.K. Bed was comfortable and location in downtown very convenient. Staff outstanding. Perfect as a base for early morning trips.

    Ratings guidelines

    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.
