This was my first hostel experience and I was really impressed. Great location, friendly staff, nice room, excellent kitchen facilities & clean and tidy bathroom with good showers. Wifi wasn't the best in the communal area so I paid for the premium service. Overall I enjoyed my stay & would recommend this hostel to others :-)

After staying in a terrible hostel in Cairns just days before my stay, I very much enjoyed my time at YHA. The rooms were clean, the people were down to earth, and the customer service was stellar. What more can you ask for? On top of that they had a great pool which is amazing especially in the intense Outback... More

Very nice hostel in good location. Rooms are bit chilly because of the AC but better that than super hot. Everything is clean and bathrooms are really good! Internet is quite slow but I would definitely stay again.

Loved this place, awesome kitchen, swimming pool is heavenly and general facilities are all good. Rooms are kinda small but they're all good, as are the private bathrooms. Baggage storage is secure too if you're on tour!

The hostel itself is pretty good. Clean, good kitchen. The rooms i stayed in were also nice. The staff could have been a bit more friendly and when i was trying to book the kangaroo Sanctuary tour here, they had no idea how to do that and i had to do it myself.

This place was decent for a hostel, It's in a historical building that used to be a movie theater. The best parts were the central location and the friendly staff. You could be on the Todd Mall in 1 minute. The staff is so nice and the guy at reception was really helpful. You can book a bunch of tours... More

Great hostel in Alice springs! The rooms are comfortable and have lockers! My only complaint is that the curtains did not cover the whole window therefore you got light through early in the morning. Bathrooms were super clean and nice. On the night I was there they had a movie showing in the courtyard. Located a 2 mins walk from... More
