I stayed in a dorm room with 3 other friends and the room was in no way shape or form clean. There was hair on the floor in the bathroom and in the bed. The linen wasn't great either. There was a lounge in the room that looked like someone had left disgusting bodily fluids (yuck) on it so we... More

A fantastic hostel, I don't even know where to begin. Great front counter service, really friendly and knowledgeable. Clean tidy and spacious rooms, each dorm of 8 fitted with its own bathroom which is really convenient. Great kitchen facilities, and plenty of places to eat in or outside. The most convenient location, only 5 minute walk straight down the road... More

I stayed for eight nights, three in an 8 bed and five in a 4 bed dorm. The rooms are spacious and clean, as are the ensuite bathrooms. The staff is friendly and ready for a little chat while still beeing focused on their chores and the needs of other guests. They also provide affordable hot meals for dinner in... More

Stayed here for a few days before and after a tour. Free breakfast, not too noisy, own bathroom in each room and you get free wifi. Best part of the hostel is the people working there! Receptionists helped me out whenever I needed them. Super friendly and super helpful!

The best thing about the Haven were the receptionists. Other than that my TV control did not work, neither did the bedside lights. I could not fit the kettle under the tap to fill as the sink was tiny. The bed sheets were stained, there was no milk for the tea and coffee on offer (the plate was dirty anyway).... More

I stayed 3 weeks in the Haven and liked the atmosphere. The have a nice outside area and pool where you can Relax. You can also book day tours at the reception, Sandra and Elsa explained everything very well and the tour was great! I'll advise my friends to stay there when they explore Alice springs.
