i stayed there a few weeks ago after walking the overland track. the place was quite clean. the communal areas were reasonably sized with a big tv. the kitchens were well stocked and the fridges were also quite clean. id defiantly stay there again especially as they're one of the cheapest places in Hobart. you definitely get your moneys worth.

The pickled frog have very friendly and approachable staff team, who greet you with a smile on arrival. The public areas and bar are nice space and social areas. Free wifi in the hostel for guests is provided. I stayed in a four bed dorm which was lacking slightly in space. Unfortunately it also smelt quite damp. The noise from... More

This was one of the best hostels, I stayed at in Australia!! The staff are so friendly and it just feels like kinda home-y, which is great when you go from one place to another constitently. I definitely ended-up staying here longer than intended. The rooms, bathrooms, kitchen, and main area are very clean. There's huge T.V. and selection of... More

Spent our last night in Tasmania at this hostel. Very busy and bustling for a random Monday night. Lot's of people hanging out, which made for a good atmosphere. We had a private room which was great. Everything was pretty clean. Walls were quite thin which meant it was a little noisey at night, but quieted down pretty quickly. Wish... More

I stayed one night with my partner, however neither of us could get to sleep because of the thin walls. We could hear everything from people talking to people throwing up. I understand that the noise level can't be controlled 100% by the hostel, however I did suggest to staff to put up more signs reminding people that they should... More

It had been a good while since I last booked a hostel so I arrived with a mild trepidation. Shuttle Bus company would not drive up to the hostel and instead dropped me off with 40 Kg luggage three blocks down the hostel. Why must adults make things difficult for young workers at the Pickled Frog just because they do... More

Because the good people make the perfect atmosphere; I felt comfortable from the first day. They have a fire for winter, that they look after beautifully to make sure everyone is keeping warm,...
