Could do with some more sunbeds round the pool.


Lovely hostel! Extremely clean and well kept. Great facilities and pool too. The rooms are well vented and kept cool during summer. Would definitely come back again.


The staff at the hostel was really friendly, especially when they told us about another way to get to the airport as a group. The room was very tidy and clean, were average but clean. The service of luggage while you are on tour is because you don't want to bring your big backpack onto the tour.

It's a bit farther away from town but only a 10 minute walk. It's a great place to hang before and after your tour and has a good social vibe with a refreshing pool, clean kitchen, free breakfast, and good facilities! The staff are also awesome.


Located on the other side of the Todd River, with the main shopping precinct a 5 - 10 minute walk away. Rooms are dimly lit, air conditioners are remotely controlled. Some rooms have fridges, others do not. Bathrooms and dorms could of been cleaner. Based on the reviews I read for this hostel expected a lot better.


Great hostel. Location is perfect to stroll into town. Only stayed there one night after my tour to Uluru but a good place in Alice Springs if you're looking to relax after the long road trips. Facilities are simple but will provide all you need. The communal fridge in the room was a nice touch (stickers and pens to mark items would be good). Booking transfer to the airport was nice and simple with reception. Overall, good stay and value for money.


Ghastly bright yellow and purple walls in the room, with one horrible fluorescent light. Filthy carpet. Dark blue sheets, presumably washed but you couldn't tell. Pocket sliding door as entrance to the room. Had bug bites all over my legs when I left. WiFi was so slow it was useless; had to go to the library to get online.

Really lovely, sociable atmospere and staff were wonderful. The only thing I would say is they don't *really* have internet - it's extremely intermittent and went down for a couple of hours the night before I was checking out which could have been disastrous.


Great place to rest while in Alice Springs. Outside of the main part of town seems pretty quiet. Great facilities and really good vibe while staying here. Would recommend to anyone coming through AS, certainly in my top 10 hostels I've stayed at


a clean quiet place with accessible location and friendly staff. when i was on the tour to Uluru, i can leave my luggages at the hostel which made everything easier, added lots of plugs can be used for charging phones and cameras near your bed. there are lockers in the room as well. personally dun like shared bathrooms and toilets with mixed gender still highly recomended


The rooms were a mess. Air con couldn't be altered, written instructions told us to close the lids and open up a window if it's too cold, but the window would open and the air cons lids wouldn't close. So it was freezing cold during the night. There was only 2 bathrooms so the line for them was long in the evenings


Great chill hostel, has everything you need and nice unique side with the outdoor common area and pool. Staff is really helpful and friendly:)


Without a doubt, the best hostel I have stayed in. Lads on reception were friendly and helpful with booking tours to Uluru. Quiet hostel but still a very sociable atmosphere. Rooms/facilities were clean and tidy. Free bbq was great!! Really enjoyed my stay!!


i realy enjoyed my stay at alice lodge,thank you very much.


Alice Lodge is an excellent hostel with a laid back atmosphere and a great outdoor area. The staff is very nice and hepful, there's free breakfast and wifi and it's just a short walk from the main street. I'd definitely stay there again!


Good place to stayin in Alice Spring! Good location good price, with lockers in the room. But it's a bit awkward that the showing room/ toilet is male/ female mixed. It'll be better if it is separated

It was a great place to crash before and after our outback tour. We had a great private double room which was in a new cabin. It was new and clean and very comfortable (especially with air conditioning!). The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were able to store our luggage there during our tour which was great and free. Pool area was lovely and the communal area was chilled and a good place for line travellers to mingle. Very pleasant and good value. Supermarket and restaurant nearby.


Nice overnight stop. Bed and shower did the job. One of the few places in Australia that I have stayed that offer free wifi and a free breakfast.
