I haven't had a long stay. One night in a three bed girls dorm and two nights in a six bed dorm but even this short time was amazing. The rooms and facilities are very nice, clean and comfortable. The staff is cleaning every day. The hostel has a very nice and comfortable TV room as well, were you can... More

Stayed at this small hostel in Alice Springs twice, it's very quiet and clean. Could benefit from more toilet/ bath facilities as many visitors are leaving at the same time. Staff are super friendly and helpful.

I only spent 2 days at this hostel, with most of my time out on the town with newly made friends as I'd just finished a 7-day tour, but the place has such a nice vibe I'd love to come back and chill out! I didn't get to see the Macdonnell Ranges so I have an excuse to return. Staff... More

If you're looking for a place to stay in Alice Springs, look no further. You've found it at Alice's Secret, a home away from home for weary travellers from near and far to recharge their batteries. Alice's Secret is accommodating, relaxed, clean and friendly. Great staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome, ensure you are... More

I have just returned from a visit to Alice Springs where I stayed at Alice's Secret Travellers Inn. Every good thing that other reviewers have written is absolutely true - it is just a wonderful place to stay and where you are made to feel truly at home. I had a private room which was very comfortable, clean, and with... More

Definitely one of the best hostels I have been. It is a quiet no-party hostel and lovely to relax around the pool during the hot days. Rooms and beds are comfortable and all the people are lovely. I would really recommend this hostel!

I intended staying just 2 nights, but my car and travel arrangements decided otherwise and I am glad they did! Alice's Secret is run by Seb, the ever-smiling German guy who puts you immediately at ease and who is there to make your stay easy, relaxed and comfortable. I like this place because it is not too small and not... More

Stayed 1 night and would have been happy to stay for longer. A bland, extremely simple looking exterior opens up to welcome you from the moment you cross that gate. Extremely friendly staff. I felt very safe (best to use taxi travelling at night even if it is just to town). Cheap. Clean rooms and facilities (no quenching of any... More

I had a really great time there! It's a very welcoming and peaceful place. Seb is very helpful and nice. He'll make sure you'll spend a great time in Alice Springs! The hostel is very clean, my bed was comfortable, and I appreciated the rule that the place is quiet by ten pm. If you need to go on a... More

I visited Alice Springs to embark on the 3 day 2 night camping Mulgas camping tour. Staying at Alice's was absolutely great! The facilities are very clean and so are the bedrooms. Because I booked my tour with Alice's secret, they offered a free nights stay at the hostel. I asked if I could upgrade to a private room and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Discover why 'Alice's Secret' has been recommended by Lonely Planet as 'too good to stay a secret' (2006). Seb welcomes you to Alice's Secret Travellers Inn, a cozy, QUIET and relaxed hostel nestled in the middle of Australia's red centre. This hostel continues to be "a work in progress", next up is an OUTSIDE BBQ AREA, for that true Aussie outside cooking experience! Recently added are our new "deluxe" rooms ALPINE HUT & BUS BETTY,also every room has it's own character. Checkout the new chill-out corner (numberplates are welcome anytime:-) covered with a shade sail outside the existing kitchen to keep us cooler in summer in drier when it rains (which happened a LOT the past 12 months). The smallest hostel in 'the Alice', we are tucked away on a quiet street just opposite arid bush land and near our Botanic Gardens, yet only a five minute walk from the town centre. Being the smallest & quietest, we pride ourselves on our cleanliness and friendliness and we are happy to give you that extra bit of attention you will miss in the bigger places. Alice's Secret is an old fashioned communal hostel with shared facilities, that means lots of places to get together and share experiences with fellow travellers. Communal facilities include a fully equipped self catering kitchen; cozy TV/video lounge with A HUGE COLLECTION OF VIDEOS/DVDs for those days when you just want to be a lounge lizard; and a spacious and green backyard complete with bbq, sparkling saltwater swimming pool, fruit trees and abundant birdlife. Recently updated is our CHAT ROOM, with a cosy sofa and games. Guests are also encouraged to make good use of our in-house didgeridoos, guitar and piano. All our rooms are clean and comfortable, air conditioned in summer and heated in winter. You can choose between dormitory, single, twin or double rooms and we have GIRLS ONLY ROOM. All linen and duvets are provided. Our office hours is 10am-2pm, then 4pm-7pm...(Check-in 12PM-2PM & 4PM-7PM) If you arrive outside these hours, just leave your luggage in our CHAT ROOM, and enjoy the garden, the birds and the pool... You will find tea/coffee in the kitchen, feel free to help yourself (-:Please note our CHECKOUT time is 10:30. Check-ins AFTER 7pm is by PRIOR ARRANGEMENT ONLY! NOT A PARTY HOSTEL! NO LATE NOISE! Intoxicated guests will be asked to leave. No visitors at any time, sorry! We have a 48 hour cancellation policy, in other words we need your cancellation IN WRITING by 12pm ACST, 2 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR CHECK-IN DATE (we are SMALL, so this is necessary). Otherwise we charge you for the first night of your booking in accordance with HOSTELWORLD'S POLICY! ... more   less
