Due to a vulcanic outbreak we nearly missed our Uluru camping tour. After we contacted Alice Lodge, they re-arranged our pick-up point so we could still join the tour. Selina thank you so much for your help! Back from the tour we enjoyed our stay in a relaxed environment. We can definitely recommend this hostel to anyone! Best Chris and... More

I enjoyed the BBQ night, games and friendly staff when I stayed there. A great way to meet people from other countries rather then a hotel. Staff were very helpful in booking local tours and it was convenient being one of the pickup locations for the Groovy Grape Tour.

Cheers for the great review! The staff are really thankful for such wonderful feedback. A hostel is definitely a great way to meet people from all over the world, and we have great communal spaces to play games, have barbies and meet some fellow travellers. More

Stayed 3 nights at this hostel and, although there are no 'extras' that you find in some hostels, it was absolutely fine for what I needed - a base for visiting the West Macs and Uluru. I did these as a 1- and 3-day tour with Emurun, both booked through the hostel (with 2 nights free accommodation as a result)... More

I had a great stay there where I met people from different countries. The kitchen is very convenient ! Anyway I recommend it for a night or more. As i went there in july I wasn't able to enjoy the swimming pool but it must be nice in summer !

Booked myself 4 nights at the Alice Lodge Backpackers and also placed another 3Day Uluru Camping Tour provided by EMU Run via Alice Lodge. Everything went smoothly and wonderful service from the reception staff Rob. He is patient and friendly enough to solve all my problems. The way he treated me made me feel as if he is a friend...

We stayed two nights at the Alice Lodge; one on either side of a 3 day Outback camping trip. When taken as a whole, the lodge is nothing spectacular but it does the trick. Our double room was spartan, but clean. The walk to the town centre and grocery stores is only about 15 mins. The free wifi and luggage... More

I stay 2 nights in this hostel that I booked with a tour. The hostel is not so far from the shopping centre, easy to walk around. Good surprise with free breakfast and only 4 people per room. Basic bedroom but good for the price, TV room (maybe too small) and really tiny kitchen (get up early if you want... More

Organised a 3 day trip to visit Uluru and kinds canyon, so needed accommodation to stay before and after. This hostel was easy to find, as got a shuttle bus straight from the airport. Check in was busy but room was sorted and explained. There was a locked storage room to keep our larger bags whilst away on the excursion,... More

Unfortunately I have to say that I didn't enjoy my stay at Alice Lodge. Toilet & shower facilities are dirty, the kitchen is tiny (not handy with a lot of backpackers all wanting to cook at the same time) and the double 'rooms' (an old caravan - which could have been charming) are worn out. Our light was not working... More
