Toddy's Backpackers Alice Springs Reviews
Popular and cheap Aug 16, 2011
Toddy's is the biggest backpackers in town - it has plenty of dorms and some twin share rooms (own bedroom with shared bathroom & kitchoinette), as well as two pools, a bar/eatery, TV room etc.
I stayed in a 4 bed dorm the first night - very cheap at $26, was ok as a place to stay but the bunks were very creaky and I'm sure a restless sleeper could wake others in the room.
The last night I stayed in a twin share; the room & common area was clean, although the walls must be made of cardboard (memo to couples: the other bedroom can hear everything).
The hot water is good in all locations, and the $8 jugs of XXX Gold make it a cheap place to drink at (many locals drink there too).
Overall, a decent if not spectacular place to stay - the walk into town was 10-15 minutes, and it's on the main road so impossible to get lost
