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. 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
