My niece and friend have come to visit so I booked a family room in the yha so that we could be right there in Hobart. Just opposite Tmag and in Argyle Street you can be on the waterfront in 5 or in the mall just as soon as. The room has double bed and two bunk beds. Small but...

We paid for an ensuite room, which was comfortable for a week, though basic. No aircon (which made a summer stay unpleasant). Noisy street. Dodgy shower. Kitchen too small to use, and no opportunities to meet other travelers- very limited communal space. But close to town, lovely walk to the docks, and the staff were WONDERFUL. very kind and helpful...

Disappointing. Smelly, unclean room that backs on to the main street and is extremely loud. Bathroom large but not clean - wet towels and hair all over the floor. Kitchen small, one table with 6 chairs to service the many guests. Felt sorry for a young man who broke a glass and no broom to sweep up. The caretaker was...

Inconveniences include: no parking, small kitchen, random cleaning hours of the kitchen, smelly rooms, and a tendency to attract the older crowd. Zero opportunities to socialise Positives? Very nice staff, decent facilities and central location

4 of us had booked for 2 x Twin Private Rooms (via a local travel group) but we were allocated different types of room. Ours came with our own shower, fridge, cupboard etc. Whereas my other 2 friends had none of those. They had to share the shower facilities with others. No elevator so be prepared to lug your heavy...

The hostel offers basic accommodation, clean enough and comfortable for a backpacker. The staff was friendly, but there's no atmosphere or communal spaces. Good location in the middle of Hobart though. As one of the only hostels I've seen in Tasmania there's free wifi all through the accommodation.

The location fit my schedule: easy shuttle ride from airport, convenient location for tour pick-ups, shops & restaurants within walking distance, and a convenient location from Salamanca Place. I spent most of my time exploring Hobart. Everyone at reception was helpful and friendly. There are several individual bathrooms with a shower, toilet, sink, and hairdryer. Towels and soap were provided....

The hostel was clean and located right in the city centre. You could get there from the airport by shuttle bus. Easily got my tour booked on the YHA website. Loved the bar next door! Staff were nice and helpful. The facilities were however very basic.

My First impression was this hostel looked dodgy, no character at all in the beautiful city of Hobart. It's a pokey hostel with lots of doors and stairs. The kitchen is tiny, and I haven't even bothered to check the lounge. On the positive side - staff are friendly, rooms are quiet, bathrooms are good, beds are comfy, and hostel...

Stayed here for two nights and found the place good for a quiet, comfortable and CBD located stay. It was a nice touch to have free fresh towels and bars of soap provided daily in our clean and cosy 5/6bed dorm. The bathrooms were single private spaces with plenty of hot water. Kitchen is small but well equipped and cleaned...
