Haven backpackers is awesome, stayed here for several days, staffs are so friendly. They keep the rooms and bathroom clean and neat, and they got all the stuff for cooking so I cooked my own meals :) I had a pretty good time in Alice Springs

We arrived in a Relocation Motorhome, exhausted from a rushed 5 day journey from Brisbane, and were greeted by very friendly reception staff, Jodie and Paul. They were extremely helpful in insuring our teenage girls were in a safe room, a 4 bed private room, and we had plenty of room to store our camping gear, and made us feel... More

Absolutely dirty! No cleaning since month especially in the bathroom. Lot of dead bugs and cockroaches everywhere. Bed sheets were smelly. Just the cheap dinner was good and stuff is friendly. All in all, i would not recommend to stay there. I made a rebooking after one night.

The hostel is clean and well kept, especially the kitchen, which is nice. Aside from that, its a small distance to town (10min walk) and everything you need. Wifi is free unlimited, and there is a pool. The rooms are average, but clean also. The turnover in Alice Springs is amazing, so every day it is a whole new group... More
