#2 of 29 Speciality lodging in Alice Springs
Travellers' Choice
Welcome to Alice's Secret Travellers Inn; a quiet green little oasis not far off the centre of Alice Springs. Being the smallest, we pride ourselves on our cleanliness and friendliness, and we are happy to give you that extra bit of attention you will miss in the bigger places. We offer air-conditioned accommodation in funky themed private and dormitory rooms. All include bed linen and access to shared bathroom facilities. This hostel is the perfect spot to get ready for your outback adventure (ask for specials) or to relax and recover after it. The beautiful, lovingly decorated garden is featured by an outdoor swimming pool, the fully equipped kitchen and free BBQ facilities give you the opportunity to cook and sit with fellow guests and the shared TV lounge and the book city are two comfy hideaways to chill, even on a rainy day. We love to keep it interesting! That’s why we’re always working on little projects to maintain and improve our little ‘home away from home’ for our guests!

This hostel has something really special to offer. More than the epic decoration, the vibe there is simply lovely that it makes it hard to leave. Richard and Esther are super helpful and dedicated to the guests and they make you feel at home straight away. I had a lotttt of fun over there, meeting amazing people and enjoying the hammock! If you are hesitating between hostels, don't anymore. This is the sign you were waiting for : Go to Alice Secret and be part of this wonderful place ! Thank you amazing staff xxx

Had the pleasure of spending many weeks here over the course of the Central Australian winter, and I can honestly say it’s one of the best hostels I’ve stayed in anywhere in the world. Seb and Miriam who run Alice’s Secret are incredibly lovely and helpful; the atmosphere is welcoming, warm, and relaxed; the kitchen space is decked out with everything you need to make proper meals; the pool on those hot Alice days is a godsend; and it’s a super short walk to town. But the main thing as mentioned is simply the atmosphere there. I met some wonderful people during my stay and had many fantastic conversations, as this place tends to attract quality, interesting, and respectful people. Will definitely be returning in the future. Thanks heaps Seb and Miriam!

I loved this small backpackers. I stayed in a Aquarium themed single room. Relaxing vibe, clean and friendly. Very close to town. Relaxing yard w pool and hammocks. Quiet. I am in early 50's and stayed here before a trek, all ages here. Thankyou.

Great Place. Good security. Helpful staff. Very cool vibe. We stayed in the best room in the place. Felt very homely. Good kitchen facilities and all very very clean. Don’t be put off by the parking. Yes it’s a bit cramped and requires a bit of cooperation with other guests but it’s good for two reasons…it makes you talk to/meet people. And secondly, I can’t tell you what a relief it is to have a secure car park where you don’t have to pull everything off your roof rack for fear of theft. We loved this place. Lovely little apocalypse style hippy commune in the middle of a mad max desert.
