This hostel is poorly organised. On our second day they changed our beds without telling us because they thought we had checked out even though we paid in advance for two nights. Staff did not apologise and was found inconsiderate. There is no allocated bed number which may be the reason for this. Nevertheless this is fault of poor management... More

Rooms are very small with no aircon or ventilation. This is absurd on a 6-bed small dorm. The backpacker was in general not very clean and toilets/bathroom were quite dirty and didn't get serviced enough. One of the 2 available toilets didn't have a lock and showers didn't have any storage shelf. Overall not recommended..

I booked four nights at $85 for an ensuite room. Originally just needed a private with shared bathroom but was booked out. The ensuite room is right by the road and main door, first night on a Thursday at 1am I could not sleep because of people be too loud in the common area. The so called 'duty managet' said... More

Someone stole my bad and the receptionist instead of saying sorry treated me like a brat while sorting it out. The other members of the staff were nice but one cannot act that way with a customer. Apart from that the wifi does not work well and the space is insufficient for that amount of people. Toilets are dreadful. I... More

Stayed here for one night and it was basic and adequate enough. Staff were helpful, however dorm was next to main bathroom and I couldn't sleep much at all due to people flushing toilets and taps running.

The hostel was freezing when we stayed for 2 nights. We were in a large dorm but we were the only three people in there so luckily could use two duvets! The kitchen was very dirty too. However, the free wifi worked very well and the girls bathrooms were nice and clean.

All of the staff are really friendly and went out of their way to help on several occasions. I stayed at this hostel numerous times over a few weeks. There is a nice relaxed vibe around the place. It is in a good, central location, close to shops, public transport, library, cafes, restaurants etc.

I spent 2 nights here. Booked myself a double room and found that overall it was a pretty pleasant stay. They don't provide towels so i had to make do with whatever cloth i had when i needed to shower. Lol. The kitchen was indeed tricky to maneuver around and was not very clean so i did not eat in...

I stayed in the 20 bed mixed dorm. No complaints in regards to the facilities - it is your usual hostel, average mattresses and squeaky bunks but good for what you pay for :) It is the cheapest hostel in Hobart and has great kitchen facilities and the usual bathroom situation. Would have put excellent for this hostel if it... More
