The kitchen is complete sh*t, one knife and the stove doesn’t heat up. The kitchen is on top of that filthy beyond imagination. But as I said the rooms are okay, the bathroom isn’t great though. Overall not a great hostel, not even a good one

The room was perfect, recently renovated, included everything you need with kitchen facilities. Very clean! Nice and friendly staff ready to help. The only downside is that outside kitchen area is closed for the night with no sign. I locked myself out and couldn't get in, although I had a key card. Be careful.

We'd just come down on the Greyhound from Darwin, and it is only a 10 minute walk to the hostel which was ideal. There's a comfy lounge room to chill in before the room is ready, and the receptionist kindly came to find us when our room was ready a few hours early! The free WiFi is great to get things downloaded for the long journeys ahead on trips, and free brekkie starts at 4.30am, early enough to eat before our tour pickup. A really nice touch that we had 2 complimentary beers waiting for us in our rooms :) Thanks guys!

I arrived here in the middle of my road trip, a stop in Alice Spring, through Sturt high way. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Pool is nice cool and clean. I'm lucky to stay in 8-bed room with lovely roommates.

Me and my friend stayed in this hostel for 2 nights, 1 night before we went on to Uluru and the night we finished the trip. It is honestly one of the nicest hostels we have stayed in. The rooms are spacious, and every part of the hostel is clean. The staff where also friendly. Would defiantly recommend this hostel.
