On the positive the staff at the hostel are warm, welcoming and accommodating. I appreciated the time and advice they have given about Hobart during my stay. The hostel is also in a good central location in Hobart, with a supermarket and the local amenities near by. Sadly, my stay and sleep at the hostel was not good. I paid... More

The location of this hostel is excellent. It's within walking distance to the Elizabeth Street Pier and the Salamanca Market. Their staff is very friendly and helpful. They helped me arranged my shuttle bus to the airport, got access to their free wifi service and offered restaurants recommendations. The kitchen is a bit small. There are plenty of clean dishes...

Montgomery's is an old favourite and did not disappoint. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful as always. Opted fo a 'shared bathroom across the hallway' room - the amenities were clean and plentiful. It's great waking up in the middle of 'Old Hobart'!

Montgomery's is a great Hostel in a great location and generally great value. It is close to everything in the City that you're going to want to see, very comfortable and clean. The staff are friendly and more than helpful. You can also book all your tours from reception while you're there.

We stayed as a group of 21 for a swimming carnival at the hobart aquatic centre. The hostel is in a great position if you are needing cheap accomodation that is close to the pool. Mike and Scott at reception were super friendly and helpful. One warning to those staying at this hotel, do not eat or drink at the... More

Positive: the staff was friendly and very helpful, the location is perfect, the room and shared facilities were very clean. Negative: it is more like a hotel than a hostel, doors everywhere and not many cozy places to sit and relax, the kitchen is very small. The double room we stayed in was on the side of the road and...

I stayed in his hostel in august this year for three nights and it was one of the best yha's I've stayed at. It was obviously winter in Hobart so the hostel was pretty empty, which meant there was never a problem waiting for anything I. The kitchen and never had to wait to use a bathroom. The ladies on...

Fantastic for the price we paid - everyone was friendly and helpful. Guests shared and exchanged travel experiences and tips in the kitchen, and made fast friends. Place was clean with multiple washrooms. Equipped with a small kitchen and laundry service, as well as a small lounge with a TV. No wifi available, but that was easily sorted by getting... More

As the name states, this place is great for backpackers and those who like it casual. Basic, clean and with an absolutely ideal location, this place is a good value for money. An extremely cramped kitchen was at least helpful in getting to know your fellow travelers. Everything we could want was no more than a 10 minute walk away;... More

Montgomery sits at a strategic location of Hobart.
