Great hostel. In the centre of Alice Spring so really easy to visit town from it. The room, bathroom and common place are really clean and nice. You have a full bathroom for yourself witch is convenient. You have to pay extra for wifi but it's really...

Alice Springs YHA Backpackers Hostel is built within the grounds of an historic outdoor movie theatre, in a great location in the centre of this atmospheric outback town. The hostel has a big outdoor movie screen showing movies nightly under the stars. All hostel rooms are air conditioned, and there is a BBQ, swimming pool and tour desk offering a full range of discount backpacker tours to see the West MacDonnell Ranges, Ayers Rock and Kings Canyon.
Family Rooms: To book a family room rate, there must be at least one child under 18 and 1-2 adults; otherwise this special room rate will be adjusted to the usual adult prices with the difference payable on arrival.

Enjoy outdoor movies at night on the hostel's big screen. Try one of several restaurants, including Bojangles or the Overlander Steakhouse, with menus that offer camel, emu, crocodile and kangaroo, among more traditional dishes. Backpackers who want to check-in back home should visit Bojangles, which has a live streaming webcam! Alternatively, grab some take-away and dine under a thousand stars!
500 metres from the hostel.
Make sure you hire a car well in advance as they are booked up early. I would deffinately recommend driving rather than taking the tours. Cheaper, a lot more freedom and the tours miss out the best spots.
Get an indepth view of the Red Centre as you explore the must see sights. Learn about Aboriginal culture as you visit Palm Valley, Western MacDonnell Ranges, Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon and of course Uluru itself.
Our most popular Red Centre Package!!!
Stay at the most central backpackers in Alice Springs with less then a minute walk to the centre of town. Depart on a fantastic 3 day tour, taking in the breathtaking highlights of the majestic Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon.
