Staff adjusted my room to one closer to a female bathroom


Big place with big clean bathrooms and huge lounge and kitchen area. Only issue is returning after 8pm when access is via a door at the end of a side alley and hence not appropriate for women traveling alone.


Maybe I have wrong expectations as I have no further experiences with backpacker in Tasmania - only with many countries in the rest of the world. Under a Room with "Deluxe Double Bed" I understood something else. Our bed was Ok, but the room atmosphere was very cold. No lamp - only a light bulb, no small table light or anything nice. The bathrooms were dirty. I did not check the kitchen, but the lounge room was not very comfortable too. Even a hostel could offer a bit more atmosphere.

Solid hostel. Staff were very helpful and location was very good


Stayed in Private Single Room. Very basic but adequate. Bed was comfy. Heating was not that good. A small oil heater barely kept the chill off and a huge fireplace in communal area was not lit (so very cold in large spaces). Location was great very central and airporter shuttle was good value ($30 return and drop off/pick up very close by). Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable re things to do and places to eat. Its a huge hostel and security was a concern but I had no dramas.

Centrally located at the city centre. Cleanliness to be improved. The floor at the room is very dirty and dusty. It shall be swept every day. Heating facilities shall be improved. The heater is not making too much functions. And the level changes shall be considered. Too many staircases up and down. The kitchen is a nice place to gather people so please improve the wifi reception there.


Great location and the staff were unbelievably friendly !
