I really liked this place, and could see how in the busy season it could get quite festive. There was a pool and a lovely outdoor seating and eating area. Because it was winter, the outdoor area was right freezing at breakfast time!! But the breakfast was generous and staff very friendly, and town was easy walking distance across the Todd River. Free wi-fi and airport pick up made this a great deal for us, not to mention the discount on the Uluru/Kings Canyon tour.

It 's a really cute little hostel with a beautiful, clean pool and free wifi and a nice TV lounge. It has different size rooms all on the ground floor and is surrounded by a gate that needs a code to enter.My room only had 3 beds, lockers and a little fridge and it was very comfortable. There aren't a lot of toilets and showers but since it's not such a crowded hostel they are enough and lots of people seemed to only stay for 1 night and go on tours so it's pretty empty all the time. There is free breakfast from 4-9 am with cereal and toast and all day tea/coffee. There's 2 free internet computers and free DVDs. You can store your luggage for free too while you go on a tour.

The hostel is located on the north shore of the "river" witch I put in quotes because it's completely dry and doesn't even look like a So it's in a quiet neighborhood away from the downtown area where Todd's Mall is located.

Alice Lodge Backpackers... small hostel, no fuzz! Dec 19, 2010
We spent 8 days in this hostel.

The first nights we slept in a trailer. It is quite cosy but it lookes also very run down cause of the stains on the ceiling. A little paint could do the job! A plus is the private patio with a table and two chairs.

After our 3-day trip to Uluru we had a small room. It's very small, but also cosy. Colourful walls.

The staff is very helpful and one of them (don't remember his name) is very friendly.

The free internet is a plus! There's also free breakfast but only cereal and we don't like that much.

We went in the Australian winter so didn't use the pool but it lookes clean. There is a small "garden" with a rocker and some garden benches.

The free luggage service is a plus also!

There's a shuttle service too. The pick-up was free, shuttle back to the airport was $ 12 per person.

The hostel is in a residential, so you feel save. As a single mum I felt quite unsafe after dark outside the hostel.

It is a quiet, little hostel, no party-hostel.

Lots of character, basic but functional Aug 30, 2010
This was a cute little hostel with lots of character. The room was pretty basic, but the bed and sheets were comfortable and clean. Toilets and showers were in a separate building, basic but functional and clean. There was free internet which was handy. Although the computer was very old and there was only one. I guess for the kind of place Alice Springs is located in (the middle of the desert) you can't expect backpackers hostels to be very modern. The staff were really nice, Brendan was very friendly and helpful. Great location, only 5mins walk into town and the main street Todd Mall. It was recommended not to go out at night though as you have to cross the river where a lot of the Aboriginal people live. Happy with my stay!

This backpacker was a great place to stay at. It was clean with a nice atmosphere, both calm and lively. The size is perfect. The swimming pool is a paradise to escape from the heat.

It is only 5-10 minute walk from the town. Be carreful, the locals highly recommended me to go back by cab at night as the area is not so safe.

Internet is free to use, and you can make a donation to help it staying free ^^

The kitchen has all I could need, and the fridges are brand new. I did my laundry there and noticed no problems at all.

They have different types of rooms, from the dorms to the private room, in kind of caravans.

I recommend that place, I enjoyed staying there.
