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.

Staff was lovely and really did make you feel at home. Good to meet people but not noisy. Good kitchen, bar and common room. Only thing I'd add is that the rooms downstairs are far from the showers (on 1st floor) but other than that the one week I spent at the frog was particularly amazing.

We stayed two nights (sat&sun) and think its excellent! If you're a young traveller on a budget, especially to those travelling alone, this is the place you go. The common rooms (kitchen, fireplace, lounge, pool, tv, bar) will help you relax. The beer is cheap, staff are young and friendly, travellers from all over the world.. snacks available.. you can't...

The staff were really great and the hostel ha a great atmosphere. The bathrooms are terrible, for example there is only one tiny sink in the shared bathroom. They were cleaned only one a day, by the evening they were absolutely filthy. The rooms are very noisy. You can here people talking in the shower, way down the hall. You... More

Frogteam, Owner at The Pickled Frog, responded to this review

Hey James, 2 stars seems a bit harsh doesn't it? Didn't you find the staff "great" and the common areas "really good and a nice friendly vibe?" Most of our rooms have their own sink so having one sink each in all of the other bathrooms is normally all good. Noisy rooms? Alas, controlling the volume of people talking has... More

Stayed here 3 nights over the weekend. When i decided to change from the 12 share room to a smaller 6 bed they didn't charge me any extra! Awesome! Really nice social place and big bonus in the winter is the two fire places! Very cosy with lots of comfortable sofas and seats. Staff have bags of information about what... More

The best hostel I've ever stayed in. Staff were very friendly and helpful, they gave us plenty of information on hobart. When we arrived we were booked into a 12 bedroom dorm we got moved into a 4 bedroom dorm to ourselves. The hostel was very clean, and had open fires, was lovely especially after we hiked up a mountain... More
