It's located not far from the center and with walking distance to pretty much everything! They have great free wifi and computers to use for free!! This is probably the best part that separates it from the other hostels!! The whole facility is great (couch, TV, good kitchen) although no real outside area. Staff wasn't very helpful, but ok, at least the ones i met...


I had a wonderful stay at Hobart Hostel. The staff are nice and helpful. I would definitely return to Hobart Hostel if I will visit Hobart in the future.


I truly enjoyed my stay at Hobart Hostel. The staff is super friendly and helpful, the free, unlimited WiFi is excellent and the atmosphere is nice. The kitchen is well equipped as well - you can't ask for anything more at this hostel.


Had a great stay here! Really friendly staff, didn't mind I checked out a bit late, SUPERfast free WiFi, seriously, well done guys! A pity that breakfast is not included; that would have made it a 100% score for me =) .


Nice hostel, nice TV-area, nice store for organic food next door.


This is by far the best hostel I ever visited. The description on their website about it being a home away from home doesn't fall short at all. The staff is very friendly, helpful and really make you feel at home. The lovely cleaning ladies do a very good job every day keeping the place clean and tidy. The free wi-fi is just amazing. Very quick and with 2 seperate networks it is always available. The kitchen is just amazing. It is very big and fully equipped. 5 mins walk to the city centre.


It's one of the bests hostels I have ever been! People are really nice there, and they've got a nice lounge and kitchen.
