This is a great find in Alice Springs for budget travel. It was a quiet, clean and safe place. The security was exxcellent. I especially liked that it was a nice place to keep cool in the heat with air conditioning and a lovely, well kept up pool.

Really nice and cosy hostel, small and quiet - everything you need in Alice. It's not too far from the town centre and the new owners Seb and Claudia would do about anything to make you happy - we stayed for 3 nights and were more than happy with everything! You can really see the effort they're putting into this... More

I stayed here for three nights and it was a lovely warm and relaxed hostel. The facilities are excellent with a quiet garden and a pool, and the staff (Wayne) helpful and friendly. They are very clear that they want a quiet atmosphere and this was the case. A very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

This is such a great hostel. Good price, lovely owners, great facilities, very clean, close to CBD, and good deals on trips. Book your rock trip with these guys and get a free night. The only downside is that the WiFi is very slow and unstable. Overall highly recommended!

We have just finished our 3 night stay in this hostel, and are very sad to be leaving! We had a great time here, from the moment we booked our room until we checked out Seb was so helpful and always around to answer our questions. He also recommended local attractions and places to eat. Our room was clean and... More

Small hostel in the right place. Just 5 min. from the centre, clean, quiet and as a bonus it has a swimming pool. Owner is always there for you when you need something. One of the best hostels so far in Australia (and that's more then 10)! Thanks for a good time! Susan and Alwin

Alice's Secret Travellers Inn was everything other travellers said. It's a cheerful place with lots of place to sit and relax. A great chat room, kitchen. Loved the TV room, so cosy and comfortable.

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!
