Follow blog link below for full review. This hostel just knows how to hostel. If you are going to Tas, you should stay here. If you aren't going to Tas, change your plans and stay here. Accommodations are cozy, WiFi is good, and people are better. They arrange a few trips with the hostel, just make sure to sign up ahead of time. They have a bar and make COFFEE. Did I mention there are dogs? Dogs that don't GAF, so they aren't in anybody's business. Was sad to leave. http://wp.me/p6eWQf-2k

Had a great time, free shuttle up Mt Wellington was an added bonus. The driver, Tod is very informative & clearly loves the area he lives in, and shared his passion very well.

Enjoyed the open fires - helped create a good atmosphere. Big kitchen, lots of sitting areas - a very spacious hostel. Thought hostel was a little grubby - my dorm wasn't cleaned for several days. And the long term guests are a messy lot. Showers are very basic. Dripping/running taps everywhere - not a good message for water conservation. The owner was very friendly: & the more permanent staff were helpful. Courtesy bus up to summit of Mount Wellington, the Mona Museum & a wildlife park.

The Pickled Frog was great! So were the staff and location. Everything was easy to walk to. Staff was super friendly. I will definitely be staying there again when I visit Tassie.

Cool hostel with really friendly staff and a great communal area. Room was a little dark / cold with not many plug sockets but other than that no complaints!

I was impressed by how kind, helpful and friendly the staff were. And good looking of course. They also make the best (and cheapest) coffee to be found in the city. And its organic. Seriously I don't work there.

Great Hostel. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, and the couches and funny paintings everywhere makes you feel at home.

Merci! We're happy to hear you felt at home - that is pretty much for what we are trying to do here so it's nice to hear it is working at least sometimes. Safe travels. Cheers, Team Frog

Great job! Lockers in rooms would be a great addition though. Good kitchen, clean bathrooms.

Liked almost everything of the hostel - except that there isn't very much going on in the neighbourhood in the evening.

Really great hostel, staff are the best! Beds really comfy, rooms are clean and everything well maintained. Common rooms are great, very chilled and the bar/coffee is cheap! Only improvement would be the bathrooms, otherwise it's a fantastic hostel and I would definitely recommend it! Baloo and Nala (resident huskies!) are beautiful!

The Atmosphere was fantastic, great stuff, nice people - that's plus. :-) Not so good was that everybody might be able to get in the luggage store, which is actually a bit of a mess. The rooms are small and beds a bit movey, but therefore the lounge area is awesome - a lot of place and good vibes. Kitchen is ok.

Room is a big crowd and bathroom is basic, but it's ok. Good common room, very relax. Location is in city, so it's convenient. And staffs are friendly :)
