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.

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.

18 April 2011 Customer would recommend this property

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.
