Property Description

According to guest reviews, the Imperial Hotel Backpackers has “the BEST beds in Australia” and is situated in “such a great location”.

Located in the heart of Hobart City, 100m from the Hobart City Bus Station, you will sleep like royalty and have direct access to Hobart’s many star attractions.

There are a large range of private and low-cost dormitory rooms to choose from, ideal for every type of traveller. Having spacious common areas, means you can relax quietly in your own space or choose to mingle with other travellers from around the world.

The guest lounge has many leather sofas, a huge LCD TV and FREE WiFi. You will also enjoy cooking in the newly renovated kitchen with stainless steel benchtops.
The hard working housekeepers scour the hotel daily with a thorough clean, leaving you to enjoy a hygienic home away from home.

Reception staff are eager to help you get the most out of your trip, directing you to all the best sites/activities in Hobart and surrounding areas.

You will surely fall in love with the newly renovated 1870s historic building and its many charms. Take advantage of the games room, pool table or sit and watch a movie in the cosy in-house cinema (construction near completion).

Conveniently, you will be at the doorstep of many restaurant, pubs/clubs, shopping malls and only a 5 minute walk from the Hobart waterfront, the MONA Ferry and Salamanca markets.
There are also discounted rates offered to anyone interested in staying 4 weeks or more… just ask at reception during opening hours from 8am to 8pm.
Staff at The Imperial Hotel Backpackers looks forward to seeing you soon and many times over.
