Toddy's is a complex of hostel and motel accommodation wher you can mingle with backpackers and eat a communal breakfast or hire a more comfortable motel style room. Don't expect any stars but it has a great relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff.

Just stayed overnight but the staff were very helpful and even organised my airport shuttle for the next day. Free breakfast is self serve and nothing special but very welcome and served its purpose, I had a single room which was clean and functional and included ensuite. Price was good and communal facilities were superb. Cant see how any body... More

Only 15 minutes walk from the CBD, friendly and helpful staff members who helped with all my questions. Clean dorm rooms and great prices! Free coffee, tea and breaky too! Great facilities with a pool and bar right next to the facilities. Definitely recommend!

The rooms were fairly standard backpacker fair, the price for a bunk in the 7 person dorm was very reasonable. The staff were very friendly and the communal bbq at night made for a great atmosphere and at only $15 for a large burger and 2 beers, amazing value. Free breakfast as well if you're up early enough, nothing special,... More

It's alright. Way too many cockroaches though. I know it's the desert but there still doesn't have to be this many. The rooms don't look like they have been thoroughly cleaned in a while, same with bathrooms so maybe just so that and it will get better. I'm seriously worried I will take some with me when I leave this... More

There are limited hostel options in Alice Springs, and it was just easier to book this with the Rock Tour. It was nice to have the pool facility, but I was advised not to walk to/from town alone at night. It's about a 10 or so minute walk, about $8 by cab. If you want some quiet, this place will... More

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!

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
