Such a great establishment to get you through the week. Open kitchen, great price, met some amazing people. Great little place to relax after a busy work day. 5 minute walk to Todd Street. 10 minute walk to Woolworths.

I was travelling alone and just booked this hostel because it was the cheapest. There were also others on their own so there were people to chat with. Staff was friendly as they usually are in hostels and introduced the place quite well. It was warm in the rooms and bathrooms were separated for boys and girls.

This might be the best place to stay in Australia. Of course you will find there all the gears you want in a backpacker hostel... but you will also find good vibes. Alice's Secret Travellers Inn is a haven of peace in the Red Center ! It as been a pleasure to stay there.

Very Cute place where attention Is paid to a lot of lovely details. Every room is unique and special, like a skiing hut or a campervan. We stayed in the colorful Harlekin room. Seb (the owner and host) was very helpful and friendly. Here, you will find everything a Backpacker needs.

Quiet, chill place to relax between trip or tour to Uluru and kings canyon. Nice facilities and comfy beds. Great garden with loads of places to sit and hang out. Very safe with a gate that locks at 7 pm. Hostel about a 10 minute walk from Woolies.

We were running a bit behind and were not going to make it before 7pm, Simona texted us the code to the gate and left the key to our room so we could check ourselves in. Wished we had of got to the hostel earlier to chill out because the setup and vibe there was absolutely awesome. Great places to... 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
