Bit rough round the edges, but a great location. Roof terrace is great but underutilized. If you want to speak Spanish, you will struggle, which is geat if you don't speak Spanish, like me!
Large, airy space but lacking decoration or character . Kitchen was large and well-equipped. Free WiFi was unusual for Hobart/Oz. Bathrooms were clean but not many and very military/boarding school type. Lockers in my room were pretty much useless for other than valuables as you couldn't even get a day pack in, let alone a case or back pack.
Staff were knowledgeable and helpful, but the air of "shabby-chic" was rather too near the shabby end. e.g. ripped curtains, ripped sofas and a general air of decrepitude. Out of date notices added to the impression of no-one really cares. The worst bit was the kitchen which looked like it had not had a proper deep clean in months and I am sure the fridges had not been cleared for a similar time. It is 15/20 mins walk from city centre too. There are better choices around.
Kitchen facilities for self-cooking very small. No air-conditioning or efficient ventilation in communal areas - got very hot and sticky.
Great Chilean-run hostel in very convenient location. Little English spoken. Good bathrooms, WiFi, computers and breakfast. Clean sheets and towel. Nice friendly atmosphere.
