Good location, great owner... very helpful & accommodating. Basic kitchen & bathrooms, comfortable bed. Would recommend you book a smaller room & wear earplugs as the rooms face a road. Top hostel in town is Montacute, but you have to book 3 months ahead. Hobart hostel could do with some repairs, less beds packed into rooms, lockers, & an over hall. It is a basic hostel. Fortunately, I met some nice people there.


Have to say the Pakistan employee is tough to talk with...not really friendly, but the owner of the hostel (the old one) is really nice.


The hostel was clean, easy to access the facilities.. Staff were always friendly helpful and easy to get along with :-) Thankyou everyone, my stay was great..

Quiet but clean hostel located within a former pub. Walking distance to most city attractions and very close to airport bus station.

the hostel is quite old and dated which isn't bad if done right but this one just looked tried and in need of a touch up every time you wanted to use the kitchen you had to wash everything before you could use them. There were signs around the hostel asking for people to be clean and tidy but some just came across as been rude. The room wasn't a bad size and had what you would expect but again looked dated and tried

Hello Martin, thank you for your feedback. Building is a heritage trust, that's to say to much can be done. Yes, there are some guests with some desire to keep everything untidy. that's why with have to remind then that facilities are for all. Some Mothers do have them !


a really nice place to stay, extremely clean and welcoming, with a big living room to relax.
