Right from the very start of my stay everything was lovely. I actually made the mistake of making a reservation for the wrong nights and turned up late at night. The reception was closed and I was expecting the worst. However after walking into the communal area looking for help a girl named Jack offered assistance. She was in fact... More

I stayed for three nights here. They have a nice cafe and bar downstairs. There was a barbeque one night with $2 sausages and drink specials. Good vibes permeate the spacious common area. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I'll be back.

I have made it a yearly occurrence coming down to Hobart for Dark Mofo festival in winter. Something about Hobart in Winter is really appealing. The PICKLED FROG is consistently such a great place to stay, What sets this place apart from other hostels, is the atmosphere and the staff. It really is a warm, friendly and homely place and...

This is the nicest hostel I have stayed in for a while! I became very ill on my trip and staff did everything they could to make me feel better about being there on my own. The open fire places are a bonus as it gives it a warm homely feeling. The fact there's a free shuttle bus to tours... More

Having stayed in quite a few hostels around Australia I would still say this is one of the best. No it's not very modern. Don't expect brand new facilities. But it is very welcoming, it's clean, the beds are comfy and you can't beat the open fire and wood burner in the lounge are. I've stayed in much bigger, newer... More

Like the title says the Pickled Frog is a good hostel, clean and a welcoming lounge area (especially on those chilly Autumn nights)! It is a great location to go downtown, about 15 minute walk. The rooms were reasonably priced, but I will say the beds were rather cramped.

Nice hostel, the rooms are a little bit small ,so the beds are close to each other, not a lot of place to leave our bag somewhere on the ground without being in the way. Well located and nice atmosphere.

Only good thing about this place: the big lounge area at the entrance. Otherwise this place is really old, tumbledown and kind of yucky! I cannot understand the previous posts!! Wifi is free, but almost never worked, because too many people were trying to surf at the same time. Storage room for luggage is totally messy und completely unsecure, as... More
