Had a good stay and have to thank the staff for the help getting around and knowing what to do. Everything is kept clean and the kitchen is very good . The place is getting upgraded so next users will have a better experience with this friendly place. Would recommend it for sure. Pedro

A great place to revive while travelling. Beds are so comfy. Quiet in the heart of Hobart CBD. Helpful manager so highly recommend it. Parking is difficult during the day so I drove until I was able to park free for the day up Liverpool Street. It worked well.

My first time in a backpackers hostel.. I have been really surprised. Good locality, very clean, wifi , don't need to use a sleeping bag. I have had a great time. Very complete hostel. I did some others after and i have been disappointed compared to the impérial backpackers.

Great location in the heart of the city. Receptionist was friendly. We booked a 3 single bed room, clean, very basic furnishings. Nice beds though! In one of the showers it was either freezing cold or boiling hot, couldn't get the temperature right plus the water dribbled out. The common area smelt like feet. There is parking outside the hostel... More

This is the weirdest hostel I have stayed In yet. I would not recommend to stay here. It's old and creepy. I booked a 7bed dorm and for 4 nights I was the only person staying in the room.. Has long dark hallways as bulbs have not been replaced so you need to use your mobile for some light to... More

Hi Friends K, Thank you for your review. In response to some issues stated: -Lighting in the hallways have been fixed, but we do like to keep the hallways dimmed at night time so people can sleep quietly. -We do provide an airport shuttle service, but you must book in advance as our shuttle only picks up our guests only....

Good value for a hostel. Location is very central. Free internet in common areas. Common areas are well taken care of and furniture is plentiful and new. I would stay here again if a few things were fixed: Our queen room was lacking any lockers- which the website description said it had. This was a huge security issue for us.... More
