Absolutely dirty! No cleaning since month especially in the bathroom. Lot of dead bugs and cockroaches everywhere. Bed sheets were smelly. Just the cheap dinner was good and stuff is friendly. All in all, i would not recommend to stay there. I made a rebooking after one night.

The hostel is clean and well kept, especially the kitchen, which is nice. Aside from that, its a small distance to town (10min walk) and everything you need. Wifi is free unlimited, and there is a pool. The rooms are average, but clean also. The turnover in Alice Springs is amazing, so every day it is a whole new group...

During the 24 hours of storms and unseasonable weather, Jodie, Paul, and Rob were amazing with handling the power outage and keeping guests informed. They handed out extra blankets, had candles and lights to make food in the kitchen. It was a nice experience to be kept in the loop and informed of what was going on when people didn't...

good level of cleanliness in both the pool and accommodation areas. I found Jodie welcoming, friendly and helpful when I had issues with the wi-fi. Having read some of the reviews I was pleasantly surprised. Would I go back again......Yes

Just an overnight stay! Quiet comfortable and a good night sleep. Great staff in Reception. Mega friendly and nothing was too much. Will come again. Recommend people stay here when visiting Alice Springs if they dont want to spend too much. Only gripe are the old Mod Cons ie ACs etc.

Staff were helpful, female dorm room and attached bathroom were clean. Only stayed overnight but had no complaints. I had asked for a female dorm room but when I got there, I was allocated to a mixed dorm but I'm not sure if this was the fault of haven or the tour company (way outback) that organised my accommodation. But...
