We stayed one nigth in 2 single rooms with nice and clean beds. A Danish speaking girl booked us in the rooms:-) The bathrooms was very cold but clean. OK for Backpackers and OK for a single nigth if you are not a backpacker, but dont´ expect to much comfort.

Arrived after reception had closed, so called the porter to open the doors for me. The young asian man, quickly showed me my single room and left me. I realised, that I didn't receive a bath towel or knew anything about the WIFI, or even where reception was in the building. So I called the porter again to help. He... More

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay in Hobart in this hotel. The beds were really comfy and we could sleep well. A point of criticism could be, that the showers on our floor didn't work properly. The water was either boiling hot or ice cold, so something must've been wrong with the water regulation. I think they might've... More

I slept in the day I was due to leave and they didn't charge me extra for a late checkout! All new furniture in the rooms and common area. The dumpling restaurant down stairs was awesome. Definitely one of the better backpackers I've been to.

Our stay here in a private room was quite good, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. During the week the place was really peaceful and you got a great night's sleep, however on the weekend a group of guests from a footy team stayed, got completely pissed, came back at 5 o clock, fought with each other, yelled...

Close to everything you want to be close to in Hobart. Neat dormrooms with lockers, clean bathrooms, and great kitchen. Definitely a good place to stay in Hobart! Kinda tricky with parking, but apart from that, perfect

John carried our bags upstairs(twice) and Elsa carried one down. Thanks. Place has nice sitting area with large TV, large kitchen area(unlike one around the corner). Looks like they are doing a lot of upgrading, too.

Clean, basic backpacker type hotel. Beds were comfortable, showers hot, kitchen well equipped desk staff friendly and helpful. Perhaps a little more expensive than I would have expected but its location is very good - right in heart of Hobart - easy access to everything.

The Backpackers Imperial Hotel is very well located - everything is so close it made my stay very pleasant. The staff were friendly and helpful. If there was a drawback it was that the bathrooms were freezing during the winter temperatures. The mattresses on the beds are very comfortable, it is nearly worth staying in the place for that alone.... More
