I could not recommend this hostel enough. The atmosphere is brilliant - everyone makes you feel super welcome. I even extended my stay after the first week. The trips organised by the hostel are really helpful esp if you only have a few days to play with. Cosy fire, places to read, nice people to chat to and plenty of pool. Could use a proper door on the bathroom & more sinks. 'The guy with the bandana' (commonly known as Sam, is a great host. Can't roast marshmallows though! :D will be back!!

Rooms next to showers super noisy, esp. early in the morning. Very annoying particularly after a 'big' night. Install a bathroom door! Nice hostel, but I doubt I'll stay there again anytime soon. I value being able to sleep in when on holiday.

Really nice staff :) just super noisy downstairs if you are sleeping upstairs can hear conversations as staff have guests over when the bar closes. the walls are way to thin, could here guests getting up to some hanky panky my room hadn't been cleaned as there was still rubblish under the bed and condoms in the bin, yew! but all and all great place :)

Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. They're really trying to provide a nice atmosphere. We didn't take any of the tours, but they sound like a great option.

The dude with the curly hair and bandana was awesome: friendly, informed, patient, helpful. He and the Frog made my stay in Tasmania a great introduction to Aussies and Auss.

Very enjoyable stay. Would certainly recommend. Totally chilled out atmosphere. The tours are what sold the hostel to me. Did the Mt Wellington one and really enjoyed it. The bar closes pretty early though.

This hostel was great! The staff were super friendly and it was the perfect environment for meeting fellow travellers :-) There was lots of space to hang out, either with a book, in front of the tv, next to the fire or even with a game of pool or foosball. While the security was a bit limited, I never felt that it was a concern. I would highly recommend staying at the Pickled Frog!!

Staff is AWESOME! Very nice and helpful. Gave great suggestions to tourist on things to do. The hostel's atmosphere is really fun, most guests were social and keen to hang out.

Really enjoyed using this place as a base for exploring Tassie. The staff were awesome and very friendly and, if I could have, I would have stayed a lot longer! Much love Billy!

Good hostel but just needed to be warmer as it was pretty cold throughout!

We stayed in one of the private apartments. Although the staff was kind the suite was dusty and full of spiders. The heater in the room was not enough to keep us comfortable during the night. The positive aspect of the hostel was the free rides to Mt. Wellington and MONA that were pretty useful for us.

Firstly we have to say a big thanks to Jim, Emma and Sam and of course the resident wolves. We actually extended our stay here twice, the atmosphere is something we haven't quite found in other hostels we have stayed in it feels more like an extended family. All the guests were friendly and chatty, the log fires were a warm welcome, we arrived as Tas was heading in to winter so bonus! The trip to Mt Wellington is a must do and its free! PS. Emma's mum makes the best raspberry brownies! =)
