Hobart Central YHA
Ranked #42 of 55 Specialty Lodging in Hobart
Reviewed February 28, 2013

Spacious dorms, lovely clean bathrooms, and most of the staff seemed nice and friendly. Really good location, 2 minutes to the waterfront, 2 minutes to the supermarket. Unfortunately there was only one small lounge area, and the kitchen was TINY for the number of people trying to use it.

Room Tip: Some rooms are over the bar, which can get noisy with the karaoke at weekends!

Montgomery's is well located, it is clean and has friendly and capable staff, it has large 'single person' bathrooms which are more like a hotel than a hostel and yet it still falls short. The kitchen is amongst the smallest have seen, I was actually slightly shocked at just how small. It has no lift, only a narrow and steep staircase, which as previously pointed out, I feel to be potentially dangerous carrying a large backpack. Though the bathrooms are great, there aren't enough of them, and in the morning it can be a struggle to find a free one.

Despite looking great, for me there are far too many practical things that let down this hostel.

We had a double ensuite (# 21) with the bedroom being small but functional and the bathroom quite new. There was a fridge in our room but we used the common kitchen downstairs. It was well equipped but far too small for the crowds of people and it had no recycling at all - sad for a YHA hostel with their usual focus on sustainability.

First off the staff at this hostel were all excellent, very friendly and helpful.

The were just two significant drawbacks however:
The kitchen was far too small for the number of people the hostel could accommodate and very poorly laid out.
It is on a main street and was therefore quite noisy till late and again early in the morning.

Also we were three adults in a family room with no ensuite and, while there was good storage there was only just about enough space to move about.

Overall it was a bit pricey for the facilites available, especially as we were informed that the prices were going up over the holiday period.

Room Tip: Ask for one off the main drag.

The room itself was fairly comfortable, but there are lots of stairs to navigate to find the bathrooms and kitchens. Ktichen and bathroom adequate. It is right next to a busy road, which wasn't so bad when the window was closed. But one of the women in my dorm got up in the night and insisted that the window be open - the incessant chiming of the clock every hour meant I got very little sleep.

Good central location, but no parking, so we had to park on the street or go further out of the city for free parking. The room was comfortable, warm and quiet. The kitchen was small and got busy at times, but was clean if a bit used.
