Don't stay here....simple as. This place is infested with mice. They are in the kitchen (which is dirty as) as well as the bedrooms, I literally couldn't sleep due to hearing them scratching around somebody's bag. Having spoken to a number of other travellers, none of them had had any mice in their hostels, although Wayne who works at Alice's Secret will try telling you it's a problem in the whole of Alice Springs. Seriously, I don't usually bother writing reviews, but my experience here was so bad I had to this time. There are way better, cleaner places. Try the YHA or Haven. Heard Toddy's has mice also and that Annie's Place is notorious for bed bugs. Hope this helps.
