Really Nice hostel. Super friendly staff. The location was also good, it is something like 5 min walking to get to the center, the shopping mall is a bit further but it is still easy to get food. A lot of restaurant around the center

We stayed in Alices secret at the start and finish of a weeks walking on the Larapinta trail. We stayed a night in the bus, and 2 nights in the Alpine chalet. How could we not? We generally raise the average age of hostel guests by about 20 years, but prefer the relaxed feel of a hostel, cooking and living... More

The woman who ran the place was wonderful; helpful and friendly, The rooms and facilities are basic but comfortable and clean. It's a 10 minute walk from the centre of town, which is close enough but also a quiet area. This place says it is not for the party crowd, which I really appreciated.

Alice's Little Traveller Inn is ok. The rooms were cramped to my liking, the gate's lock hard to operate after office openning hours, not existing proper shower amenities for the numbers of people staying in there. Backpacker's world elsewhere moved on. Would have opted for a different accomodation if I knew.

Hi, we are really sorry to hear that your experience with us was not positive. The gate locker is a simple bicycle locker, it may be hard to operate ai it is locked from the inside, but that's how we can keep unwanted people away from the hostel :) Our hostel can accommodate a maximum of 40 people, we have...

We had a great stay at the alice secret travellers in. We were welcomed by two very friendly italian employees who showed us the way around. Laid back atmosphere in the garden and very creative design of the whole hostel. We loved it!!

Gorgeous little hostel with a wonderful atmosphere, clearly a lot of love has gone into it. One of the few hostels where I'd be tempted to spend all day just lounging around. You have the opportunity to meet cool people but you're not forced to, and it's very quiet in the night time.

Spent the night in the comfy Princess 3-bed room, where I was alone! The place is super cute, cats are lovely and hosts are friendly! It is a quiet hostel so you won't be able to party, but instead enjoy dinner and company of the other travellers in the kitchen/dining room. There is everything you need with hot showers and...

10 minutes walk from the city centre, confy private rooms, clean, with a swimming pool and lot of help from the staff. What else could we ask for? They also provide with sleeping bags if needed for those who chose a 3 day outback tour. Excellent place to relax!

I loved staying here. It has all the quirky, adorable eccentricities and personality of a local hostel combined with the peace and quiet you need to recover from each day's adventures. Definitely not a party hostel. We actually stayed here twice, about a week apart. The first time we had a small private room, and the next time we ended... More

I really loved staying at Alice's Secrets. The staff is super friendly and make you feel at home immediately. The garden is a wonderful spot to hang out. The bathrooms were always very clean. I think the kitchen could be improved a bit, e.g. one additional sink, and the 6 bed dorms are quite small and could thus use more... More

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! We have a 48 hour cancellation policy, in other words we need your cancellation IN WRITING by 12pm ACST, 2 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR CHECK-IN DATE (we are SMALL, so this is necessary). Otherwise we charge you for the first night of your booking in accordance with HOSTELWORLD'S POLICY! ... more   less
