I don't stay in hostels often but was very happy with my stay at the pickled frog. Stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm room which was clean and warm. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful for activities in and around Hobart. Huge lobby with fireplace to hang out in and very quiet at night. Great location close to everything... More

The pickled frog is fabulous! What it lacks in dry tea towels and dirty old carpets, it makes up for with AMAZING staff, atmosphere, friendliness of locals, area and homeliness. I cannot fault this place, it was like walking into a crazy, fun loving uncles house I'd forgotten about! I went during autumn/winter and it was cold,very cold! But the... More

Making a magic place even more magic, The Pickle Frog is with no doubt the best hostel in Hobart, Tasmania. GREAT staff, clean and fun! Everything you need to have an amazing time. The coffee is great! So be sure to at least buy one hot cup! Is easy to cook and make new friends!

I had a very short lived visit to Hobart and my thoughts about accommodation were not premeditated whatsoever. After finding my seat on the airport transfer service I did what most travellers do way far in advance,and typed into Google: Hobart hostels. In which a few dominated by browser. Feeling for the large part overwhelmed, I paused briefly to take... More

I had two nights at the pickled frog and I found the staff very friendly, however, my mattress was stained and there was a clump of hair in the sheets, the bathroom was full of mould and the toilet seats were dirty. The kitchen was pretty clean though. I also found it quite a noisy hostel.

A very warm welcome at the Pickled Frog. My husband and I had a private room, which consisted of a double bunk. (double on the bottom, single on the top) their was also a basin in the room, which was really handy. The shared bathrooms were adequate and clean and always had hot water and a shower available. The facilities... More

This place is amazing! It has that warm, charming atmosphere that makes you feel instantly at home. The ultra friendly and helpful staff may have something to do with that. And the cosy fireplaces. And the many chill out areas (where I met a whole lot of pretty amazing people, with some eventually becoming my travel buddies). And of course,... More

I had the best time in Hobart, and The Pickled Frog was a big part of it. I picked it because the free shuttles were convenient, but I'd go back because it's a great place to spend a cold night. Staff was crazy friendly. I was only there for three evenings, and they knew my name when the wished me... More
