- 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). New owner, Wayne, 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 a new OUTSIDE KITCHEN for that true Aussie outside cooking experience! Recently added is our "Friday night FIRE in the Forgotten Corner", and currently going up a new very colourful 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, 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, fish pond and abundant birdlife. Recently added is our CHAT ROOM, with leather sofa and games (vinyl record player to come!). 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 accredited Travel Agency can advise and ensure bookings with all major tour companies (Australia wide).
