Stopped for few days in this charming little hostel. Even though they’ve cut office hours, self check in was very efficient and simple and the owner was available on the phone and arrived within few minutes when I had more enquiries. Good air-con, clean rooms and yard lovely decorated with lights and garden ornaments. Lots of friendly people to talk to and cool pool to jump into when temperatures hit 40 degrees. Glad I’ve found this hostel, will definitely come back next year.

I stayed there for 4 nights with a 3 day tour in between. I was greeted by very friendly staff who offered to let me borrow a fly net for my Uluru tour which was an absolute lifesaver. The 6 bed mixed dorm was simple and had everything that you needed. Comfy beds and clean sheets were perfect. The water from the taps is quite warm, but the rooms have a mini fridge to cool it down. The kitchen had everything that you would need to cook good meals and the toilets/showers were great. I very much enjoyed relaxing in the hammocks they have there. The atmosphere was very relaxed and quiet, but there were plenty of social places where you could chat to other backpackers too. Overall very friendly staff, great vibe and all for a good price. I would definitely recommend staying here.

I am cycling the Stuart Highway and had to stay the night in Alice due to heavy rain and I was soaked and exhausted. I called and Sophia quickly booked me the last single room. When I arrived she interrupted her lunch and made me feel very welcome. Then an amazing thing happened. I mentioned I had lost my thermal top and as a result was really cold. Sophia said, “Hang on,” and went to her living quarters and gave me one of hers! It was an Underarmour top and she refused tp take any payment for it. What incredible customer service. Thank you so much Sophia and Alice Lodge Backpackers, you deserve a medal.

The place is a good backpackers place. Clean rooms and bathroom. Free breakfast in the morning. It has a decent pool, which we didn't use. All in all nothing bad about the place, but it doesn't have anything that makes it outstanding.

Things I did enjoy - the price, the open shared space, chilled atmosphere, free breakfast, plenty of power outlets, the staff were pleasant enough, free luggage storage whilst away to Uluru, etc and I met a few cool people whilst staying here. Things I didn’t enjoy - the weird reception hours, only one working cooker in the kitchen, loud screaming infants (why take a baby to a hostel?!), the creaky beds and it’s a bit of a trek from town if you have a suitcase so need to factor in the cost of taxis. May I ask why the toilet is right next to the shower? It was incredibly distracting and made me feel sick listening to someone doing their business whilst I was getting washed. Poor layout. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here and would stay again.
