          The number of locations close to Uluru is limited. This place is as well a hotel as an YHA. I stayed in a 4 bed room of the YHA. Room had 2 bunk beds but an own toilet and shower. The guest kitchen is not well supplied: too less cutlery and e.g. no bowls. When you do not want to cook by yourself, you can also eat at the site. There is also a swimming pool.

          Bunk beds comfy.

          I'm reviewing this as someone who only really spent 11pm to 5am in the room for one night. Staff on reception very helpful. Internet a bit misleading...only working in one area of the bar, very expensive for what you get but if you've got activities planned, probably the best base available

          YHA in Uluru

          Aside from camping, it seemed like Uluru (Ayer's Rock) would be too expensive for my tastes. With hotels running ~$400/night, this is not lone backpacker country.

          Except that it is. The Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge offers YHA accommodation (bookable on the Australia YHA website). So for ~$35/night, you get a bed in an air conditioned room, access to a self service kitchen, and a swimming pool. There's internet, vending machines, and the main shopping area is across the complex (~15 min walk through the sand, or by loop shuttle bus).

          At night, you can either dine in the buffet section (pricey), order a la carte from the cafe (maybe just a bit more pricey than their counterpart elsewhere) or prepare your own food in the kitchens. Afterwards, catch at a drink at the bar, listen to some live music and head off to bed. Like all the resorts, you can book tickets/transport and tours to see Uluru and Kata Tjuta (the Olgas) from reception.

          From the airport, a free shuttle bus meets all flights and takes you into Yulara. Tell the driver you want the Outback Pioneer and you'll be notified when you arrive and dropped on the doorstep. The same bus will take you back out to the airport at certain times when you leave.

          All in all, it's basic, but clean, comfortable and super reasonable in price, especially in Yulara, which is basically all owned by a single company and can charge whatever they want. Unless you're keen to camp or have a large group of people to rent a cabin at the campgrounds, this is the best cheap options for accommodation at Uluru. I definitely recommend it.

          We left Alice early this morning, the coach driver keeping us entertained with interesting facts and funny stories; for instance, there is an annual boat race in Alice Springs but there is no water in the river so the contestants pick up their boats and run! There is also a camel racing track here - big business apparently!

          First stop was …

          This morning an obviously non-discerning fellow traveller remarked to the new manager at Kulgera: 'Nice set-up you have here' to which he replied ‘I know – that’s why I call this Paradise!’ I have scarcely felt further from heaven: both of us agreed that here we have probably reached the lowest ebb in our accommodation.
