Alice's Secret Travellers Inn
Discover why 'Alice's Secret' has been recommended by Lonely Planet as 'too good to stay a secret' (lonelyplanet.com 2006).
New owner, Wayne, welcomes you to Alice's Secret Travellers Inn, a cozy, QUIET and relaxed hostel nestled in the middle of Australia's red centre.
The smallest hostel in 'the Alice', we are tucked away in a quiet street just opposite arid bush land and near our Botanic Gardens, yet only a five minute walk from the town centre. 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.
Alice's Secret is an old fashioned communal hostel with shared facilities, that means lots of places to get together and share experiences with fellow travellers. Communal facilities include a fully equipped self catering kitchen; cozy tv/video lounge with A HUGE COLLECTION OF VIDEOS/DVD'S for those days when you just want to be a lounge lizard; and a spacious and green backyard complete with bbq, sparkling saltwater swimming pool, fish pond and abundant birdlife. Recently added is our CHAT ROOM, with leather sofa and games (vinyl record player to come!)Guests are also encouraged to make good use of our in-house didgeridoos, guitar and piano.
All our rooms are clean and comfortable, air conditioned in summer and heated in winter. You can choose between dormitory, single, twin or double rooms and we have GIRLS ONLY ROOM. All linen and duvets (in spring, winter and fall) are provided.
Our accredited Travel Agency can advise and ensure bookings with all major tour companies (Australia wide). (Wayne has guided tours for the past 6 years to Uluru, around Aus, and in New Zealand). Booking your tours from us will definitely save you time and money!
