The hostel has a shabby chic look and a lively vibe suitable for young travellers. The room we stayed in was paper thing though and it was noisy at night so light sleepers might want to reconsider.

A nice enough place but aimed at the younger traveller.

The hostel was fine, if a little chaotic due to Australia Day. Unfortunately even though I inquired about getting picked up early for a tour the next morning the staff didn't tell me that reception didn't open till 8 so I didn' t get my key deposit back.

- install a cooker - more information about tours. As I only realised there was a chocolate factory on the last day.

If the men's sink isn't going to be fixed, please at least put a sign up so people don't use the cold tap and spill water all over the floor.

Sometimes you're lucky with where you stay, sometimes you're lucky with who you meet. I was lucky with both. The hostel has free wifi, that actually works, a decent (if sometimes busy) kitchen, and lovely people staying there. They have free trips to Mount Wellington and MONA and the staff are really friendly and helpful. Big shout out to the guy with the headband and yoyo - the stories were great!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Private rooms have a very good value for the money. Relaxed atmosphere. Super friendly staff. Great free shuttle bus offers.

We have travelled around the world and stayed in plenty of hostels. The Pickled Frog was one of the dirtiest we have seen. Our room was super tiny and the window opened into a wall so there was no air coming in even with opened door. Clean sheets were provided but no clean duvet cover (we were told these were already changed but they seemed dirty). The staff was not pleasant/helpful - no smile or welcome. The location is good - close to the port and CBD. Facilities are great.

a bit too shabby for my taste, but it has everything you need. nice staff, bright bathrooms with windows. the private room had a bunk and could not be ventilated properly. the price was fair.

Big hostel, the common areas were super busy in the evenings! Overall it's a good hostel, great facilities and friendly staff. It's an easy walk into the centre of Hobart. I think they could do with a few more sinks in the bathroom (just one in the girls bathroom for the whole floor!) Not many plugs available in the rooms but plenty in the common rooms.

What a great place with very kind and helpful staff. If you visit Hobart and you're going to stay in a hostel, The Pickled Frog is choice, is a must! You won't regret. ;-)

The lack of door to both the female and male bathrooms meant that noise levels were ridiculous at all hours throughout the second floor! Sheets were clean but stained. The bar at reception was great as were the staff. However this is a very noisy hostel and the beds are not comfortable.

I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff is friendly and cool and the common room is very good. I definitely recommend this hostel!

By far the best place to stay in Hobart. Run by awesome local staff, they are so kind, help you with everything. Wanted to stay for a couple of nights ended up in almost a month :). The hostel feels like a home, the vibe is really open, warm and friendly. To all the staff: thanks for an awesome stay last month, hopefully we'll meet again!

Friendly and personable staff, great atmosphere, clean and comfortable private room, great kitchen rules that help communal kitchen to stay clean. Shared bathrooms can be improved: need more than one sink and mirror, solid doors to both male and female bathrooms would be nice to have, showers could be improved by adding a shelf into the shower stall and separating the washing area from the dressing area with a door/curtain.
