Probably one of the best hostels I've stayed at and I've stayed at over 30, lots of nice common areas with a pool table, comfy couches and fireplaces. The free bus shuttle to Mt Wellington was really good too.


Generally a great place to stay, best in Hobart. Pretty chilly though, ask for a heater for your room! Staff can be a little cliquey as well but others are very friendly.


Could have used some heating as I froze all through the night even with extra clothing. But overall is wicked. Would stay here in warmer weather if I ever went back


This was one of the nicer looking hostels in Hobart. Free wifi was wonderful. If you come in winter it can get very chilly, luckily we were the only hostel room with a heater so you might want to request the 6 bed room. Overall a nice hostel with easy walking distance to the local shops. The free shuttle buses are wonderful too.


The location was pretty good in the centre of Hobart. The fireplaces in the community rooms were really nice and we could warm up there. The rooms were pretty cold (we have been there in June) and the pillows were disgusting... Everything else was quite clean, but the ladies bathroom only had one small mirror and also just one sink, which wasn't enough, if there were 3 girls at the same time. Nice were the benches for having our dinner close to the fireplaces.


The atmosphere was lovely however the hostel was very cold and not very clean.


definitely the best place to stay in Hobart! I highly recommend it! great facilities and i love their dog :)


Spent 5 nights here and it was just ok! The hostel seems pretty old and there hasnt been any recent jobs done. Rooms smelled pretty bad and windows where not enough to make air circulate. There was a friendly atmosphere and the staff was great! Free wifi in the entire place!

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.


Great hostel for Hobart!


Awesome backpackers


Grenat staff and cosy atmosphere due to the chimneys.


We had a very good experience at pickled frog. Staff was helpful. Room was okay. Would be nicer if there is free breakfast.


Great place, would definitely return if Im back in hobart
