Liked: Location was great, it was clean, the rooms were cleaned daily and even had an electric heater inside for the cooler nights (winter right now). The kitchen was well-equipped and had tonnes of space to keep groceries or dry food, as well as a great label system. The bathrooms were kept pretty clean, had soap, hand towels, hot water and wait was minimal. John at reception was really helpful and friendly, even helping me book my airport shuttle. Beds have night lamps and linen was clean; atmosphere was friendly with other travelers.

Disliked: The second night of my stay, there was a domestic dispute in the common area (between our dorm room and the bathrooms and/or kitchen). It was a violent/abusive scene, spurred on from alcohol, and we were never sure whether it was locals working and staying in the dorm or just locals who walked in somehow, but it went on for well over an hour late at night, and the people made threats at guests who tried to speak with them or get by to their rooms. Because reception closes at 8:30pm, no one was around to help us try to deal with the situation and eventually we had to call the police because it was so bad. This may be common in Alice, but it definitely left a number of people feeling unsafe that night.

Liked: Probably the best located hostel in Alice, right in the heart of town. Awesome building. Very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful when it came to booking trips and solving problems. Overall a very comfortable hostel, I'd stay again.

Disliked: Laundry and wi-fi is kind of expensive but at least they have the facilities. The promised nightly film screening never seemed to happen but this is hardly a big deal since there's an actual cinema just around the corner.

Disliked: Room keys often don't work, no staff on-site from 8:30 pm to 7:00 am, staff doesn't tell you about property or take you for a tour (you pay, get room key, return for another room key, and another room key, etc.).

Liked: Simple, easily accessed accomodation.

Disliked: Need two doonas in winter, which was fine cause there was a spare bed and I stole one off that, but in a full room it could get quite chilly.

Liked: Beds have own light; bathrooms are clean; free storage while on 3-day Uluru trip.

Disliked: 1. The army of flies in the kitchen - maybe at least supply fly swatters and sticky tape. 2. Either give the bed linens over the counter at check in or move the cart to a more obvious location so guests SEE it as they go through the door. I didn't get a reminder and didn't decide to make up my bed until after the office closed at 8:30 so no sheets that night. 3. Hard to find a space without the constant music in the background.
