          I thought this hostel looked like a prison. I am not sure if you would find much better elsewhere in Alice Springs. I found the place depressing and I was sad I had already booked it and had to stay there again after returning from my Uluru tour. I would have given them two stars, but I had to drop it to one because the night I returned from my tour the hostel was hosting their Christmas party and I wasn't able to check in. They had left a phone number on the door to ask for Roger. When I tried to call it, (and I had to go into town get change and use a payphone) I only got Rogers voicemail. I followed people into the hostel (not very safe!) and used their "emergency phone" which also went straight to Roger's voicemail. Not good if you really have an emergency! At least they came by an hour and a half after I arrived and I was able to check in. I would recommend people try another hostel.

          I was impressed with the big movie screen they have in the courtyard. We watched a few movies outside and got to meet a few other travellers while we were there. The staff helped plan my trip out to Uluru. There's not a lot happening in Alice Springs, so I wouldn't plan on spending more than a night or two here.

          Up at 06:15 for me, and off to Kings Canyon... and it's a bit chilly. The start of the walk was by far the worst bit, climbing an uneven man made stone stairway up a deceivingly steep escarpment. Two thirds of the way up, and I was struggling, until I realised an 82 year old Kiwi was ahead of me and he was still going strong! Climb up …

          Sorry for not writing but there was no reception in the Center of Australia. So we flew from Cairns to Alice Springs which is a two hour flight. First thing we thought when we reached Alice Springs was a thank god that we booked a tour already and that we have a booked flight to Adelaide. Alice Springs is pretty small and there isn't really a lot …
