Toddy's is a great place to stay if you are doing a tour. Toddy's allows you to leave your luggage in the morning before the tour (from 5.30am) and provides breakfast at this time - both unlike other hostels in the area (as told to us by others on our tour) so it was very convenient!

Loved staying at Toddy’s. I and my 89 year old father arrived from Uluru on 7 July, unable to find any accommodation on the way or during the 2½ hours we drove around Alice Springs in the dark, rain, cold. To finally find 2 beds in the 6 person dorm was like arriving in Heaven. Lovely room-mates & my father’s first experience of dorm-sleeping.
