We stayed in the 12 bed dorm, only for 1 night. If we had been in Hobart longer, I definitely would have stayed longer. Very cozy.

Nice place to stay, it's very close to city centre and everything you need. Rooms are reasonably clean but a bit small. There is a lovely cafe/bar with a beautiful fire place, pool table, theatre room etc. staff were very helpful and friendly. I'll stay again

You should really do something about the Cold in the rooms- either put a heater inside the rooms or at least seal the big crack in the window (room #2)... Other then that I really enjoyed my stay- good location, really friendly staff, cozy atmosphere and the dog/wolf is beatiful

The staff are always cheerful and welcome your question. I like the free tours to guide us around Tasmania too. As a tourist who want to relax, Pickled Frog told everyone to follow rule which is slience after 1030. That is really Good. I like it.

Main room very dark. Need a key to get in the rooms, but it's tricky and most people can't open the door. As a result, my room stayed opened all night, which would have been ok if some guys hadn't decided to play pool and talk loudly at 3am...

Nice retreat in the middle of Hobart. Clean and tidy facilieties + friendly staff make it worth it to stay here!

This is a great hostel located smack dab in the middle of downtown Hobart, a 10 or 15 minute walk from Salamanca Markets and close to Battery Point. The staff is incredibly helpful and informative, and they also offer free shuttle rides to MONA and Mt. Wellington, depending on the day of the week. This is a pretty incredible offer and can save you quite a bit of money! The only downsides: there aren't any lockers, and the kitchen can get quite crowded at certain points.

Very convenient, since they have excellent tours available for free. That really made all the difference!

We enjoyed our three day stay, except for a few things: Not enough amenities (toilets, showers, wash basins) for the number of people booked in. There was no waste basket in our room, mirror or place to hang clothes other than hooks in the wall. Other than that, we would recommend the 'Frog' to most travelers.

Great staff and it's not too far from the city centre. A good selection of bottled beer and coffee is available at the bar.
