I've stayed at the Pickled frog multiple times and every time it is amaaaaaaaaazing. The hostel is super social, the staff and knowledgeable and happy to help you with anything you could ever need and the location cannot be better. My favourite part has to be the two hostel dogs. :P

I first didn't know what Hostel to chose but I m glad I chose the Frog! It's right in the center of Hobart and very easy to find because of its bright green veneer. Its a pretty big hostel with a nice common area where its very easy to meet new people. Since its my first trip alone in Australia...

Clean and friendly. Central to everything, loads of good recommendations and the staff are super helpful. Would definitely stay here again! We had a private room for 3 which was comfy enough for the price.

Good location, Nice staff, functional kitchen and good showers also pretty clean. Kitchen just lacking knives and fork's when busy! We stayed in a private double room which was fine, compact but comfortable. Overall a bit scruffy but had character!

I really liked this place! Stayed here with my girlfriend in a 3 bed dorm for 4 nights. It is an old hostel but that's part of it's charm. Good sized kitchen with 12 stove tops. Convenient with a sink and mirror in the room. Guitars in the lobby for guests to use. There's a bar in the lobby as...

We stayed 3 nights in the Pickled Frog and were disappointed with the place. First of all they overcharged us. We booked the stay in advance and recieved a confirmation per email with the actual price. After our stay we noticed that they had overcharged us and wrote them an email in order to pay us the difference back. As...

Beeeeeeeeeeeeeep. That is the sound of you failing your lie detector test. If there had been any amount overcharged we definitely would refund this rights away. While leaving these lies in your review may have made you feel better for a second, you would have been better off financially (if this did bother you so much) if you'd actually had...

I was pleasantly surprised after reading the recent reviews. Yes the bathrooms need more cleaning and the halls echo noise, but I had a great time there. I loved the big common rooms with comfy sofas, and the little bar in reception had Tassie beers and ciders we can't get in Sydney. I met great people and felt at home...

We stayed here for a couple of nights and genuinely weren't sure what the fuss was all about. Location is at the top of one of the shopping streets and is pretty handy. A 15/20 minute walk to catch the ferry to the MONA and 10 minutes from the shops. As nice as the staff were, this doesn't make up...

Hi there LindyBopper, I feel that this review is either highly exaggerated or that our cleaner was having a very off day. The bits about the room are a concern for me also. I know for sure all the walls are painted because I did them myself (maybe this says more about my painting skills that I'd like to hear!)...

As a social hostel, I have to give Pickled Frog 10/10. The staff are super friendly, there is funky graffiti on the walls, a lively bar and huge common areas to hang out and meet other travellers in, plus free tours several times a week and events/special deals most nights. If you just want a good night's sleep though, this...

Hey mate, thanks for the review. You have almost nailed the kind of things I want to put on the website and summed up The Frog in a nutshell. Almost. Maybe just a little bit harsher than I'd like. Just a few points I'd like to clarify for our readers; pretty much all rooms should have a power socket for...
