This is honestly one of the nicest hostels I've been in so far (and I've lived in hostels for the last six months). It is not a party hostel, but perfect for what I needed: a few days laying in a hammock and reading. Seb will help you out whenever you need it. Everything is cleaned daily and there are... More

I stayed here both before and after a trip to Uluru. This was a quiet friendly hostel with plenty of space outside to chill out and enjoy the sun. Definitely recommend this hostel. The only slight issue is how far out of town it is (takes a good 10 to 15 minutes to walk in), not so great to walk... More

Seb has done an excellent job creating a place that immediately makes you feel welcome. Everyone was easy to get along with and easy to talk to. There is a place for everything here, from the swimming pool to the TV room to the reading room. Ask Seb about Alice Springs and he will give you helpful information about the... More

My friend and I stayed here 4 nights in the "Betty boop bus". The room is amazing! This would have to be one of the best hostels I've stayed in throught my world trips. The staff are very helpful and cool. There is a mutual respect with all the guests that this is a "non party" hostel. It's relaxing,quiet and... More

we stayed a night in 'the bus' as a break from camping. it was basic and quirky but comfortable, nice pool and lovely shady garden area. the kitchen as a bit of a mess which would have put us off staying longer (but we're more flashpackers than backpackers i think!). it was quiet when we were there - i don't...

Stayed at the hostel for one night only. Room was tidy and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Amenities are clean. Pool is decent size and definitely helps to survive the hit weather. I would stay there agin, definitely.

Stayed here for one night following my Uluru tour. I booked a single room with shared bathroom. They state this is a no party hostel, and it was lovely and quiet. Five minutes walk into town for dinner and an easy walk back along the lighted highway. Ten minutes to Anzac Hill the next morning and the airport bus picked... More

My girlfriend and I spent one night here in October. The owner couldn't do enough to help us, gave us a detailed map of the town and arranged transportation to the airport for us. We stayed in a private double room and although it wasn't a massive room it was quirky (all private rooms have a different theme), clean and... More

We loved our visit here (we stayed in the funky Betty Boo Bus seen on the pictures). A backpackers place but quiet and comfortable. Pool was clean, kitchen and bathrooms too. There's a great garden to relax in, a tv room and a large kitchen. Other guests were tidy and happy. Seb, the owner was approachable and friendly as were... More
