Property Description

Hobart Central YHA is one of the most central hostels in all of Hobart – we are right opposite the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, one block from the Harbour and less than 10 minutes walk to Salamanca.

Our staff hail from all over the world but have decided to call Hobart home and are more than happy to help you plan your island adventure. We know the best tour operators (hint: they’re not all on Instagram) the secret spots, how to get there and how to fit it all in to your 5 day itinerary (because you probably thought Tasmania is “just that little island underneath Australia”, right?).

If you prefer recommendations for good coffee and amazing local produce over where to find the cheapest goon, then we’re probably the hostel for you. We have regular activities that change with the season so make sure you check out our website to see what’s on.

Reception is attended from 8am - 10pm. If arriving outside these hours, please call the number on the front door and the night supervisor will assist you.

Due to the shared nature of the facilities at YHA properties, YHA may require all guests to provide proof of vaccination. A safe stay is our top priority so we have enhanced hygiene measures in place, along with social distancing practices. View House Rules

    Terrific staff who are most helpful, excellent location and affordable. Kitchen and eating area was very cramped and more than 5 people would be a squeeze. Overall very good.

    Wonderful staff, great location- realize it IS above a pub, so bring ear plugs if you need them. The staff, location, and cleanliness make this a WONDERFUL YHA - I spent 3 nights there, had a tour, then another three nights. Plenty to do in Hobart for a few days.

    Great location walking distance to everything. Staff is friendly and like using an app for the key. Not enough laundry for the whole building & kitchen is small. Overall, would recommend.

    Staff was adorable and helpful, I was surprised of how clean the facilities were given it was a busy week to be in Hobart. I stayed in a 4 beds female room, which was ok but I'd have liked more space, also our room was just next to the traffic so keep in mind it's pretty loud if you're sensitive to noise. Overall a good stay, with one downside though to me is the lack of social opportunities - the common space is located in a place that doesn't make it easy to meet people.

    Very basic but good for our 2 nights in Hobart. Practical private room with a suitable amount of bathrooms/showers.

    Great hostel, however the kitchen is very small. You’re trying to eat your breakfast and you have 6 people crowding over you eating standing up as there isn’t a lot of seats. Everything was clean however the showers need to be upgraded as they’re very old fashioned.

    Staff is super helpful when you are trying to figure out things to do in Hobart. The layout of the hostel made it hard to be social though, and the kitchen is really too small to accommodate the number of people trying to use it.

    Very basic shared dorm, kitchen was very unclean and not much atmosphere. Location is great, right in CBD. Shared bathroom facilities were okay (included hairdryer which was great).
