I stayed in Alice's Secret for two nights at the end of a group tour from Adelaide to Alice Springs. I stayed in a private room which had a light house painted on the wall, I loved this and for the time I was there, the size of the room was ideal. I spoke to Jason at reception about getting...

Myself and my partner checked in on Friday 14th August and checked out on the following Tuesday. Upon first entry, the place looks nice, with a hammock and nice garden with pool and little bits and bobs to give the place some personality. Wifi connects but barely works. We got the Forest room which is a donga. The photo of... More

Hi Joel, I'm sorry you had such a bad time here, considering you both stayed here for the 4 nights that you had booked and didn't come to me once about any issues, I find it hard to believe it was so terrible. Whenever I said hello to you both in the hostel you seemed happy and never informed me... More

I really liked it here. Everything feels a little bit motely, colorful and arranged with love to the detail, so I immediately felt quite familiar here. There is a very nice garden area, a working guitar and a kitchen that has even an oven. Going here is definitely a very good idea!

A good, clean budget hostel. Nice atmosphere with a central courtyard and pool. The kitchen is well stocked with places to store your food, and they offer free coffee and tea. There is a TV room and some quiet spaces indoors. Air conditioned rooms are small and all share the bathrooms. There is a laundry and a place to dry... More

I stayed there for almost one week, had a wonderful time and met a lot of nice people. I didn't have a place to sleep for the last night and the hostel was already fully booked. Still Seb, the owner, figured something out and put me into a 3 bed dorm that was booked as a private room that night.... More

My friend and I stayed there only for one night but I would like to stay more in this hostel. Really, really nice!! We were in the upside down room =) So cool!! It was very clean and comfortable. But first of all so different from the standard hostel.

Owner of the hostel is really friendly and will help you as much as he can. He has his own system when it comes to choosing a room. I mean in a good way. I got double room for dorm price. You will find there everything you need. Loved that place. My best hostel experience.

this is probably one of the best hostels i have used in my life. the room (the swiss house) was simple but comfortable, and the quiet of the hostel was amazing. the receptionist was a really good german guy who gave us a lot of info about what how to move,visit and eat in this small town. GREAT ACCOMMODATION!

The guy is ridiculously welcoming: when we got there 5 mins after the last double room was taken by a coulple travelling on a van, seeing we really needed a place the guy asked the couple if they could sleep in the van instead (for a special price) and leave us the room! Which incidentally was the grooviest accommodation we've... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our tour of Australia. We absolutely loved it. Pro's: 1. Staff: the owner is lovely, welcoming and cannot do enough for you. He stayed up late to let us in when our tour finished later than expected (midnight), gave us flynets in preparation for our tour, showed us round the hostel and was... More
