The Pickled Frog Backpackers is, to put simply, the best hostel I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The staff are super friendly and can't help guests enough, moreover they are all locals so they have fantastic knowledge of Tasmania. The hostel runs free weekly tours up to Mt Wellington, MONA and to the Tassie Devils. It has... More

Third time for us in this hostel, we're staying here everytime we come to Hobart. Nice dorms, clean bathrooms, big kitchen and above all an amazing staff, probably one of the best team we met by travelling!! (We wont forget the Dogs!) Thanks again, we hope we'll find a place like yours in France :)

We have been to so many backpackers (in and outside AU) and, I must say, this one is far the shabbiest we have seen. We stayed with our kids, who were scarred of the spooky graffiti on the walls, our room was a sad looking bedroom with grey walls that were patched up with boards on one side and a... More

Its a decent hostel for a few nights. The room are spacious enough and its rather clean. Only 2 of the guy's showers work though and there's only 1 sink and 1 mirror.. ......The common areas are big and include a pool table and plenty of couches.

Me and my friends lived in "The Pickled Frog" more than 4 weeks and we loved it! It honestly felt like home! It is a very warm place with the most friendliest staff and guests. There are a lot of longterms as well and it was like a little family after a while. Every evening we sat together in the... More
