I planned to stay at Haven only for a few days, turned out this place is amazing for short and longterms! Always heaps of nice people around, including the friendly and helpful staff! Nice clean dorms with own bathrooms, very comfy beds, cheap but good BBQ and the pool comes in handy on hot days! Billiard, ping pong or tv... More

For a Backpackers hostel, Haven's hard to beat in Alice.... I regularly stay in hostels in Alice, and am always happy when staying here. The place is always clean, great value for money and the staff are knowledgable and helpful.... Highly recommend to the budget traveller!

This is ideal for backpackers, cheap but safe and convenient. This was just perfect for us to stay in prior to our Rock Tour 3-day camping adventure to Uluru/Ayers Rock, and to leave our luggage for pick up on our way back.

Stayed only one night on my way out of the NT. Key cards were great. Rooms were clean and tidy, bathrooms nice. Aircon is on a timer, I guess to save money/energy, but does get annoying to constantly turn it on through the hot december nights. Free breakfast was typical. Toast etc. Staff were really friendly, even hunted me down... More

Very very dirty kitchen. You need to deposit your key or some money for every pot/plate/anything you want, which sucks. Bbq for 5 dollare every night!! Pretty good location, very nice and comfy rooms.

I stayed in the Haven for 3 weeks when my van broke down in Alice Springs. The Haven turned out to be a good home, with friendly staff, clean facilities and decent entertainment (table tennis tourny, $5 bbq nights, movie room). Laundry facilities are great with a big clothesline area outside. There was a bedbug issue that was addressed promptly,... More
