Montgomery sits at a strategic location of Hobart. It's 2 minutes from Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery ( or TMAG) and bus mall, 4 minutes from visitor information centre and woolworth supermarket, 5 minutes from foreshore and the oldest bar in town, Hope & Anchor Tavern, and 10 minutes from the local bar Shamrock and Salamanca Market. You can take... More

Unessessarly strict on check out time 10am ( room swipe card is electronically canceled. ) Don't rush for the shower at last minute and expect to re enter your dorm room. left in an embarrassing situation 3 levels up from reception. No apology & I expect no change to this guest lockout system.

Definitely a good backpackers to stay in Hobart. Close to the city and staff are friendly. If you were staying for a number of days and intended to cook at the hostel, beware that the kitchen is really small.

Montgomery's is located in a perfect place in Hobart. Close to the sea, close to supermarket and in the centre; perfect to go everywhere and catch the bus or shuttle! At the first sight it might not be the most beautiful infrastructure, but you quickly realise that is a super clean place and very easy to stay. The rooms have... More

I stayed 3 nights, 2 booked by myself, one included in a tour. The first night was very good, comfortable room, cleaned showers, friendly staff. But the kitchen is very small and for a hostel which regularly receives groups over 15 people it is a nightmare. Then, for the last night they made a mistake with my booking and I... More

I stead in the hostel as part of a tour and staff on for a few extra days to discover Hobart. Beds were comfortable and the location is brilliant. However at 30 dollars a night it is not good value. WiFi is extra and the kitchen is ridiculously small. I stead there 5 days and I never once managed to... More

Stayed here last weekend for 2 nights. Great location to the harbour and markets, friendly staff, clean rooms and bathrooms. Nice to have a bathroom where you can close the door and change. Negatives were that the music us noisy at night but stops at midnight and kitchen is far far too small for a hostel of that size!

Our group consisted of about 12 people including family, couples, and two small kids. Our booking was originally meant to be 2 nights in 2 private rooms for us to share, but our booking got mixed up, and we ended up split up in 3 different rooms with other room mates. Sleeping bags are not allowed at this facility (which... More

Good rooms and beds. Very close to everything. Pity about the no sleeping bag regulations, Hobart gets quite cold even in December. Doonahs were quite short if you are taller than six foot. Staff were friendly and helpful. Amenities were very clean well maintained.
