I got a free night stay here when i booked the rock tour, i was pleased with the accommodation as well as the rock tour itself, there is a bbq every night this is probably the best backpacker accommodation in Alice Springs!

I stayed here for two nights either side of the rock tour. The first night, me and my travelling companion had a huge dorm to ourselves which was great. The room had air con which was a saviour in Alice springs. The first room was quite dirty though & there were some cockroaches in the fridge. This turned in to... More

I liked this simple, but clean backpacker accomodation in Alice Springs. I chose a single room which was ok, perhaps too expensive. The area is nice close to the town centre. Overall, my opinion is positive.

Alice Springs was our last stop on our 2 month journey through Australia. By far, the management team here is the best we've met in Australia. They are cooperative if you have questions or a problem, super friendly, willing to help with anything. The private room we booked was basic but exactly what we expected for a backpacker place. Internet... More

The staff are amazing! Everybody is so friendly! Rooms are good and fair prices! A large majority of tour guides for the 3 day Uluru Rock tour live there too so you can get to know some guides before the tour! The pool is awesome too, highly recommended!

The staff at Toddy's are just the nicest people ever! I never had all staff members of a hostel remembering my name as it's foreign, but all of them did. We even went for a few drinks. Other than that, the rooms are clean, tidy, spaced. Its quiet. You get free breakfast with toasts and spreads (even peanut butter), and... More

It's a fluke I ended up here...as I am not the typical target market for this type of accommodation. (I'm older and like my creature comforts and privacy.) It was recommended I stay here after a three day tour of Uluru/Kings Canyon. If you are in your 20s or 30s...and traveling on a budget, this is an excellent option. I... More

The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from main town area. The private room was nice and exceeded quality of most backpacker resorts. I booked the three day Alice Springs to Uluru tour and only stayed one night. The only complaint is that free airport pickup was advertised... but not offered when we arrived at the airport.

We booked this as part of a deal with the rock tour. Facilities were good - pool, laundry, free Wi-Fi, air-con, bar. Free shuttle from the airport and to the Rock bar in town. Staff were really friendly. On arrival they asked if we would mind swapping the dates of our tour due to numbers, we agreed and they offered... More

We stayed here for 4 nights either side of our Rock Tour and it was the best hostel i've stayed in yet!! The hostel is clean, we had an ensuite, Staff were really friendly, they went out of there way to help up, even gave us lifts when they didn't need to!! I would 100% recommend this hostel!!
