One of the best hostels I've stayed in! The common areas are fantastic, loads of couches, open fires and a bar as well! The staff are so friendly, not once I would walk in the front door and not been greeted by a 'hey' or 'how was your day'. The long term guests are also really nice to you. It's... More

The Pickled Frog is a very comfortable hostel with plenty of common rooms for lounging, and a shared kitchen that was never too crowded. My private room had windows that open for air circulation, but no view beyond the windows of the rooms across the hall. The bunk bed was reasonably comfortable, and there was a sink in my room....

Hey there - thanks heaps for taking the time to say such nice things about us! We are currently planning on putting in an upstairs garden so that the room you stayed in will have a nice garden view instead of the current one. Hopefully you can come and check it out next time. Thanks again for your awesome review.... More

The Pickled Frog is a nice Hostel although very, very busy. Me and my girlfriend had to stay in seperate rooms in order to stay here. That was fine, but it helped to build my impression that the Pickled Frog is like a small music festival everybody wants to go to. We couldn't really enjoy the atmosphere. I recommend to... More

One of the best, maybe even the best hostel I stayed at during my year in Australia. Nice room, good prices, many nice places to hang out and most of all, amazing staff! They are really friendly and really helped us to discover what to see and do in and around Hobart. I really recommend this place to everyone!

By far the best and most cosy hostel in Hobart! The staff are super friendly, the backpackers super relaxed and the free trips the hostel offers are amazing. If you expect a shiny new modern hostel don't go there, but if you're looking for a good time, laughs, adventures and new friends then this is the place to be! I... More

Everything was perfect from the friendly staff as you walk in the door, to the facilties and friendly guests. Staff extremely helpful and treated as a Freind rather than just another number. Very clean and supplied with out asking.

A place is only as good as it's people so this is a great place! Staff were friendly, helpful and seemed genuinely interested in all the visitors. A hard trait to keep when working in tourism. Having the bar was ideal and great coffee. Great sitting area and big kitchen.

Nice hostel for one or two nights. Rooms are OK. Toilets and showers are a little bit dirty. Kitchen and communal area are very big, there is a little bar\café next to the reception with great coffee. The staff is really friendly and offers some free tours for example to mt. Wellington. All in all a nice independent hostel.
