This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Alice Springs.

Alice Springs is the biggest city in the interior of Australia and the best spot for those who want to explore the Red Centre of Australia and know a little bit more about the aboriginal culture. The Red Centre is well known for its different landscapes and amazing sunrise and sunsets.

During your stay in Alice Springs, take a camping tour of three days and two nights that departs from this city (you can book this tour in every city of Australia in a travel store. Try to book your tours in a package to have better rates -- the most you buy, the better discounts you will have). The best time to visit the Red Centre is in autumn (April through June) and spring (September through October), to avoid the normal forty degrees Celsius at 9 a.m. during the summer.

You can reach Alice Springs by Greyhound bus, by car, or by plane, but these options are really expensive -– even though it's such a touristic place, a lot of backpackers don't visit because of this. If possible, try to find people who are interested in going to this area, then you can rent a car and share the oil and the driving time among you –- that's the cheapest way to get there. If you decide to travel by plane, try to book your flight in advance to have better rates.

There are a lot of hostels in Alice Springs that offer good accommodation and good facilities for a good price.
