I recently stayed at Narrara's and really enjoyed my stay there. As most reviews have stated, Mo the manager is very friendly and helpful and knowledgable about Hobart. He and his family run the hostel and they are all lovely. Narrara itself may not be the most modern hostel but it has a cosy feel that made me feel very... More

Good value for money. The manager Mo was really friendly and was really helpful. He was one of the reasons why we felt so comfortable there. After spending a few nights there,we went off to nearby farm to spend the night and decided to come back to stay for our last night in Hobart before flying back. Returning to Narrara... More

Narrara Backpacker is run by a lovely couple, Mo and Teddy, who will do anything to ensure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. They are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the region, the rooms are clean and warm and there is parking on the property. They are a stone's throw from town in a nice quiet location.... More

Narrara I enjoyed my time in Hobart and The Narrara was fine for my needs. The Common room is very friendly and warm. The Staff and owner are charming. (With one acceptation) and the rooms are clean. I did have a few issues; Showerheads are too low, water pressure leaves much to be desired; yet the floor was always wet... More

We stayed at Narrara over the new year and had a fabulous time. The rooms were plain but had very comfortable beds! with clean linen etc. The bathrooms could do with a bit of an upgrade - though agree with other reviewers that level 2 and 3 were much better. A great location, a lovely ten to fifteen minute walk... More

I stayed there after doing the overland track. Mo, the owner was very helpful. He even saved my room when I left for an overnight trip and I could leave all my luggage at his place. The "living room" was really comfy and I knew most of the other guests after my first night. Stayed there for 5 nights and... More

Mo is a very kind and helpful owner. I love Narrara's location. It's quiet but convenient to main locations. The house is clean and tidy. The bathrooms and toilets are clean too. I stayed in a 6-beds dorm for the first night and had my room upgraded to a single room in the next day. Both rooms are tidy and... More
