    Rooms are arranged that separated too far within a group of people, not enough parking space to park closer to the room that need to carry heavy lugguages around the resort area. But, overall environment is good. A lot of facilities available.

    This YHA is part of the budget hotel there so you share dining and other facilities. The free night time entertainment was great. Ask for a room by yourself as I did. All the Uluru accoms are positioned along the same cirular road with access to the early morning or sunset lookouts within easy walk.

    the room is uncomfortably small; concrete shelf may cause headbanging and injury; no Wi-Fi felxibility; inadequate power outlets in the room. Staff are friendly and helpful

    The location, staff and overall vibe of the hostel is great. The only issue is that they are literally the only hostel at Uluru, so it is a monopoly. The food is VERY overpriced, but there is a IGA grocery store nearby with reasonable pricing. The hostel has a kitchen free to use, so I would advise going to IGA and cooking your own food. Otherwise I have no complaints and would certainly stay here again.

    If you can handle the small dorm area and fellow travellers who don't organise themselves the night before their 5am start, then this place is a gem. Backpacker rate but in a resort, complete with friendly and helpful staff and a huge range of free and paid activities. only (minor) negative was not enough crockery and cutlery in the guest kitchen.

    Cramped, but great beds and great service. Would recommend again

    There is no competition in the area for low cost accommodation, so unfortunately this is the only choice. It's not any more than basic and the rooms are TINY, however, I was still happy to see Uluru and make the trip here.

    Great hostel! Staffs are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean. There are everything you need, such as the bar, BBQ, live music, TV and computers atc. Great experience to stay there.

    Booked and paid for a 'double/twin room' for two night stay with wife. When walking in to room, were actually given a room with bunk beds. Returned to reception and was told that doubles were only 'Subject to availability'. In fairness, reception staff were very friendly and after a bit of faff (and several hours passing), was able to get in to a different (double) room. Wasn't a great start though, and a hot concerning that you pay in advance for something that isn't the best reserved. Aside from that, the room was clean, tidy, etc. Very youth hostel'y - painted breeze block walls, etc. There was a telly, fridge, which might be more associated with a hotel room. For the comparative price, against the other accomodation on Ayers Rock Resort, I would definitely stay again. But I'd mindful that this is definitely hostel accommodation, and you aren't guaranteed the room that you book and pay for.

    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.
