The hostel is very nice.it's small and quiet, but not to quiet. The rooms are clean and staff is very friendly. You get free wifi for a 100 hours and a there's a good ambiente. The walk into the city centre takes about five to ten minutes. Nice cold pool to cool down in the sunny desert.

We stayed in a private room with two of us which had lockers and a fridge. The hostel has a nice layout around a central courtyard and pool. The kitchen is small but everything is available to use, we only ever cooked basic meals. The free breakfast is good and starts nice and early (4am) for everyone getting up to... More

I stayed in one of the private rooms and found it comfortable. It had a porch with table and seats. A pleasant place to sit and enjoy the evening getting to know your neighbours. The staff was very helpful in arranging tours and the hostel was set up to accommodate. The hostel has a nice yard and pool in which... More

We arrived at about 8pm and there was no one to receive us. The gates were locked and we had to use our phone to call a local number that was written there in the gate (so, having a UK phone, we paid A LOT of roaming!!) to know the code to get in. At this time the reception was... More

G’day Cpartidario, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and we are all disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay. We are a very small hostel with only a two staff, and therefore we do not have a 24 hour reception. The hours to check-in are, as stated in your confirmation, 12:00 – 2: 30pm and... More

Not a bad little hostel. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and the garden/pool area is nice. The people are very respectful of each other. The rooms aren't very clean, need a thorough vacuuming and dusting. And the showers are quite grubby. Wear flip flops. The kitchen is tiny and difficult to prepare a meal in at the usual breakfast...

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.

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.

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
