Alice's Secret Travellers Inn

About Us


New owner Seb 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, quietest hostel in the Alice, yet just a 10 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, including a fully equipped self catering kitchen, cozy TV/DVD/Video Lounge and a spacious, nice backyard complete with BBQ, sparkling swimming pool and abundant bird-life.

Rooms are very clean and comfortable, air conditioned in summer (unless otherwise stated – we offer non AC rooms at discounted rates!) and heater in winter. All bedding provided.

Our accredited Travel Agency can advise and ensure bookings with all major companies. Booking with us will save you time and money! For sure!
