Toddy's Backpackers
Reviewed 8 May 2014

I had the best time at Toddy's Backpackers. The rooms are nice, tidy and well equipped. if there is an issue or a problem you can always ask the staff. they are super friendly and help where they can. Also Toddy's has some awesome extras like the free shuttle bus into town and the airport shuttle. They really looked after me and I felt welcome during my stay.
This hostel has a large room to store your luggage which came in very handy ,because I could store my stuff there during my tour to the rock.
another good thing is the free breakfast, thats a luxury, especially when you are a backpacker.
And the Wifi is very fast in comparison to other hostels.
The pool area is awesome to relax in the afternoon and you get to know people pretty fast.
It seemed to me that the toddys team tries really hard to increase the service and they always seem to try to improve their hostel and make people feel comfortable!

keep it up, it was awesome, I will definitley come back one day =)

We stayed here a few days in a semi-private room (your own bedroom but you share the kitchen and bathroom). The staff was great and the best part was the bar . There isn't much to see in Alice Springs so to have a bar just down stars is pretty good

We stayed here a few nights after our Rock Tour and felt immediately welcome by all staff members. So helpful and friendly. When we were here there was alot of rain so they provided an hourly free shuttle bus to the town centre (which is normally a 15 min walk away) and back to the hostel. I can't fault the teams efforts to keep everyone happy, we had a problem with our room and they immediately apologised (even though it wasn't their fault) and changed us to a different room. No attitude was given just politeness.
They have a nice little bar which make really yummy pizzas and the reception sells snacks and drinks.
The wifi is free and is excellent, not slow at all.
Yes the place is far from the town, but this makes it a nice quiet hostel. My only issue was that the rooms could be cleaned better, with all the people coming back from the tour the floor does get dirty but doesn't seemed to be mopped that frequently. Would still stay here again however as the staff are the best people I have experienced in a hostel (especially the kiwi, he's awesome!)
Keep on improving Toddy's and soon you will be the best in the business!

Excellent place to stay. Owners are great fun. Breakfast was 2 pieces of toast. A ten minute walk from the main town but an easy walk. 2 pools. 1 was clean the other not so clean. Rooms were very basic. No fridge no locker. They really do look after you here and a few adjustments and this could be a magical place. I'd DEFINITALY stay here again as the owners were fantastic and helpful.

Toddy's is a very reasonably priced hostel, which includes in the price free wifi, a good breakfast, nice pool, and a large common area. The dorm rooms themselves were spacious enough for 6 people and bags, plus cleaned daily. Friendly and helpful staff, even at 5am! The only downside was the kitchen- every time I went to use it it was filthy. I know this is down to guests, but perhaps the staff need to keep an eye on it and clean it too.

Toddys is a really good hostel in Alice springs with a lot of features. For just 20$ a night you get free wifi that works excellent (I was talking on FaceTime every evening when everybody else did), a nice and refreshing pool with a sun deck, free breakfast (even at 5 am) and aircon in every single room. The toddys bar has excellent pizza and is a nice place to spend the evening. It closes at 10 pm, which is mainly because the managers don't want toddys to be a party hostel with a lot of noise. There are mostly people staying who are going to the rock tour next morning and the hostel respects that.
The stuff is more than friendly and helpful.
You can rent bikes really cheap. They even gave me a special price because no one wanted to rent the bikes and they were free anyway.
The walk to the city is indeed 15 minutes but you won't find a hostel closer to the city as they are all a bit more outside. At least toddys is closest to the place where you can feed wild wallabies :-)
The beds are not the most comfiest ones I have ever slept in, but they were clean and alright for just 20$.
In the hostel are a lot of young and friendly people. It does not take more than 5 minutes to get in touch with another guest.
The hostel is ok clean. The rooms and bathrooms are cleaned dayly. If you are staying with a lot of dirty guests then it's maybe bad luck because I was there and it was mainly clean.

I just can recommend staying at this hostel as they do a great job and care about their guests.
