Property Description

Hobart Central YHA is one of the most central hostel 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. View House Rules

    Had a very good experience of staying at YHA Hobart. Rooms and bathrooms are good in size and very clean, stuff is friendly and location is fantastic - right in the middle of the centre! Kitchen is slightly small though, and in some rooms street noise is a bit louder, but didn't cause me much of discomfort. I'd absolutely come back here!

    Kitchen and fridge are too small but they are already in the changing process. It’s hard to get your luggage to the third floor without an elevator.

    Stayed for a night before my tassie tour. Bedroom was spacious and clean, bathrooms also clean. Kitchen is small but I didn't use it. Location is good. When I checked in, I asked if I could leave my bag there for a few hours at the end of my tour, so I could get food before heading to the airport. They said it was OK but when I went back after my tour, the staff on the desk were a bit funny about letting me leave me bag for free (they let me though)

    Great location and well kept but overall a little less than what you would usually expect from a YHA. The atmosphere wasn't quite there unlike the Pickled Frog nearby which felt much more homely and easier to meet people.

    Hostel was clean and in a great location for central Hobart right by the dock for the MONA ferry and for the tourist centre for buses and also for the Salamander markets and bars. Staff were very helpful for advising places to eat and how to get places. The sheets were clean. Bathroom basic as expected and clean. I would recommend.

    Very Good

    One of the worst YHA's I've stayed at. It's 3 very high floors and no elevator! Third floor has 3 bathrooms for 6 dorm rooms, so easily 8-12 people per bathroom! Lack of dormitory style bathrooms or separate toilets was very frustrating. The kitchen is also absolutely tiny, to the point where it wasn't usable, and the lounge was closed so there was nowhere to just sit. I'd recommend skipping this YHA if you are looking for the same standard you might get at another. Only plus was great location.

    Good, clean hostel with comfy beds, very nice bathrooms and good WiFi. Brilliant location right in the middle of the city also. However, no social room - as it’s being done up - accounted for the little/no atmosphere.
