The guy who checked us in was lazy and couldn't even be bothered telling us when the gate locked at night and how to get in, where our room was placed, where the kitchen and toilet facilities were. During the night we had a break in, in our car, someone smashed a window, they said the gate was locked which...

Cockroaches everywere! Everything's broken, toaster only worked one side, only a few of the hobs worked. There is about 3 plates in the whole hostel, about 5 forks....

The atmosphere is unique with its hustle and bustle of travellers from all over, late night munchies in the kitchen, beers at the desk, and quiet background music its probably my favourite backpackers ever and we had a lot of fun on tour camping.

I was booked here for 2 nights but only stayed one. I was booked into a dorm but upgraded to a private. This was a big dorm room, with no one else in it. The hostel is very run down, and needs lots of attention. My bed was comfortable but the room was quite dirty, and the air con barely...

Only stayed one night but it was exactly what I needed. Pool was clean and cool, walking distance to everything I needed, room was spacious, reception staff were friendly, and the aircon worked. Reception was very knowledgeable about tours around the area and also smiled. There was an outdoor kitchen facility that looked clean but I didn't use it. My...

Booked a private room but got a big dorm room instead only no one else stayed there. The place is run down. The aircon was barely working and didn't make any difference at all. Considering it's summer in Alice Springs this kind of stuff should be working perfectly! The front piece of the aircon was laying on the floor. The...

The location was good just a short walk into town, the dorms and common areas were clean and spacious and it had all the basic nessecities including a transfer to the airport. My only issue was the pillows which were flat, the pillows did absolutely nothing to prop your head up and it was pretty uncomfortable but I only stayed...

Great experience, from check in to departure everyone was helpful, friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of well. The location is good only a few minutes from the town centre. The rooms are clean, well priced and the bar has by far the cheapest drinks in town, but the people who work...

We stayed in the Haven Backpacker Resort for two nights. The dorm were okay, even if you could see lots of traces on the mattresses and pillows. But they provided us with bed linen and sheets, so that was okay. The kitchen was just a mess. Everything was randomly spreaded in the kitchen and it was hard to fine proper...
