We stayed at the Pickled Frog for only one night, but it was a great stay! The girl working the desk gave us EXCELLENT food and drink suggestions (and cheap too!) The place was clean and warm. We got it for a great price! The ladies showers had taken a bit of a beating (someone had been sick all over... More

I stayed here for one night during a short trip to Tasmania. Not only was The Pickled Frog really easy to find, but they provide parking for guests behind the building, which is nice if you're renting a car (which I did). This place is definitely geared towards a younger crowd -- i.e. backpackers between the ages of 18 and... More

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
