We stayed here a few nights after our Rock Tour and felt immediately welcome by all staff members. So helpful and friendly. When we were here there was alot of rain so they provided an hourly free shuttle bus to the town centre (which is normally a 15 min walk away) and back to the hostel. I can't fault the... More

I stayed here beginning of January. The bathrooms are very dirty, I wanted to puke. It looks that they don't clean them at all. If you are not too picky about hygiene and cleanliness it can be a great place. Breakfast is ok, good to get you going in the morning, WIFI was not bad and the reception team was... More

Excellent place to stay. Owners are great fun. Breakfast was 2 pieces of toast. A ten minute walk from the main town but an easy walk. 2 pools. 1 was clean the other not so clean. Rooms were very basic. No fridge no locker. They really do look after you here and a few adjustments and this could be a... More

Toddy's is a very reasonably priced hostel, which includes in the price free wifi, a good breakfast, nice pool, and a large common area. The dorm rooms themselves were spacious enough for 6 people and bags, plus cleaned daily. Friendly and helpful staff, even at 5am! The only downside was the kitchen- every time I went to use it it...

Toddys is a really good hostel in Alice springs with a lot of features.

Location of the hostel was to far out of the center. The beds were very uncomfortable and rooms to smal for the amount of beds. The staff reacted rude to normal questions. Very unhappy about this hostel. I've traveled a lot and have been to a lot of hostels and am easily satisfied but the way I've been treated here... More

Booking this hostel and the Rock Tour is a good package to everything that needs to be seen. The hostel itself is not the newest one but the staff is great, the pool is perfect for summer days and I liked the routine with which everything was done. Good place in Alice springs!
