Friendly family run backpackers. Economical accommodation with clean bathrooms. Basic kitchen. Cheap excellent meals for $10 at hotel around the corner so no need to cook. Walk up the hill to Peace Park & Mt Knock Lofty Reserve for beautiful views over Hobart.

It is a little expensive, but it is not a bad place and also the staff was really kind. The owner took us in his car to the cbd gave us some directions. I wouldn't mind going again. Also if you want to walk it is not too far from the cbd, and they offer parking if you have a... More

I spent one night here in a 4 bedroom dorm, which cost 30$/night. Before coming here I was staying at a great hostel & paying less per night than at Narrara. My only reason for coming here was that all other hostels in Hobart were COMPLETELY booked out. The owner of the hostel is very kind, I give him that... More

Mo and the rest of the staff were friendly and helpful, giving us tips on where to go and helpful suggestions on what we could do. The hostel is not the biggest, but it is quite cosy. The communal area, the kitchen and toilets were clean, and so were the bedrooms. The showers had hot water, which was great. The... More

Hostel was very clean, kitchen always clean, plenty of utensils and space for food. Owners very pleasant and willing to help with tips about Hobart. Centrally located while at the same time out enough to be relatively quiet at night. Rooms fit for price. Stayed in private 2 bed room. Supplied bedding and towels and tea and instant coffee available.... More

From the outside the hostel appears to be very nice, however once you come in, it quickly looses its charm. the communal area is very cramped and small, not leaving a lot of space to socialise with other people. and the costumer service is TERRIBLE! my friend and I stayed in a double room, which for the price was nothing...

My friend and I on a last minute trip, you really do pay for what you get as the property appears to smell and doesn't appear to be looked after. We stayed in a Hotel nearby for the same price a night after we left this Hotel that was incredibly clean, looked after and had friendly service instead. Manager/Owner (male)... More

This little backpackers situated in the heart of Hobart was such a nice little spot to stay. I have always preferred the privacy of a hotel but this place was just as good. It was incredibly clean, quiet, super cheap and Mo was a lovely host. Thank you for having us.
