Hobart hostel has a serious immature operation with its online third-party booking system. At first, they couldn't confirm my booking. One day after when I called them back they couldn't confirm again. After one day I called them again, they spent 5 mins to find my name & my booking. I complained they didn't call me back at all. They just said:" You have problem you contact with Hostelworld. I don't have time with you anymore." At last, I lost my money of first night staying.


We received a warm welcome from a lovely Portuguese lady. Great place to stay if you're looking for somewhere quiet, clean and a convenient location.

Everything is all right, only the staff seems doesn't seems to know what they're doing. I have booked my reservation for 3 nights, and it seemed like it's saved to their database on their computer, but they also have this large paper where they write all the schedule and reservation handwritten. They could find my name on their database on the computer but someone forgot to put my name on the large paper, so they left me standing around 20 minutes to figure out what's going on.

Old, cold and dated. Location ok 5-15 minutes away from shopping, sights and waterfront. No central heat. Lacked electric plugs. 2 plugs for 6 people and a heater too one plug at night. Staff was profesional but not pleasant or helpful. Needs good overall cleaning.
