Liked: It is in a great part of town. Nice, quiet and green. Everything quiets down around 10.30pm. The front gardens are nice, and it's all locked up at night. Double rooms in the front of the hostel are great! Bright and cheery.

Disliked: The vans in the backyard which serve as 'double rooms' are terrible. Not clean (windows are really dirty, and there is rubbish dumped in between vans) depressing to stay in... The toilets and showers are not very clean. They should be cleaned daily.

Disliked: a lot of written pamplets with do´s and don´ts - video survaillance everywhere.. but O.K.: I think if you don´t handle it like that there is often a mess in the kitchen.

Liked: The price, location and breakfast included.

Disliked: There are only 2 showers for the 12 rooms! Also it is quite rustic, the doors of the rooms open straight outside, which is fine if you like that kind've thing. Also reception closes at 7pm and our tour was late coming back (7.30pm) so we couldn't access the luggage that we'd put into storage for the duration of our tour. It wasn't great going to dinner in the clothes we'd been wearing all weekend around Ayers Rock!

Liked: Staff were friendly, breakfast was basic but all you really need. Place was comfortable and felt safe.

Disliked: It is a bit of a walk out of town and as a single female I would not feel comfortable walking in the dark in the area you had to walk in to get to town. Could use a few more showers and toilets but can make do with what there is. Most people are either leaving on or coming back from a Rock tour so we had people leaving at 6am every day, would have been nice if all the early leavers were put into one room and all the trip returners were put into another room.

Liked: The hostel is definitely within walking distance from the CBD though you will want to take a cab home late at night for safety. The 4-bed dorm was pretty typical with the added bonus of a mini fridge, personal locker, and big storage locker while you're on tours. Nice amenities in the room.

Disliked: The music that plays practically 24/7 by the front desk is just awful. There was a lot of competition for showers and the bathrooms weren't very clean. I also wouldn't dare to use the kitchen because it's just gross and 'free breakfast' is Cole's white bread and sound boring cereals. Good if you have a tour but you can do better.
