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

    Clean and tidy hostel which is located in a great position. Very close to Constitution Dock and Salamanca Place as well as Woolworths and other stores. Kitchen was a bit small, but it was clean and well resourced with working appliances and utensils.

    Very good hostel. Those that need socialisation and partying, may find that hostel lacks one central place/room where people can gather around.

    Great Hostel for Australian standards, the staff especially Sarah was amazing and the platypus walk! Great location too! The bell down the road ringing gets a little annoying at night, showers were warm and good, but could use some cleaning after the evening peak and before the morning peak! Kitchen definitely could be bigger!

    The staff were so kind! It was easy to check in and out. The other reviews about cleanliness being low are true though (I didn't want to believe them). My bed they'd put sheets on for me to set up/stay in had a yellow pee-ish stain on it. I just moved to a bottom bunk when one became free the next day. The hostel is in the best location but like other reviews, not many hang out spots to meet people other than your own room.

    Experience is very dependent upon what room you get. 3rd floor rooms are dingy and dark, 1st floor rooms are light and nice. Lack of atmosphere in the entire hostel, common rooms are not central. Kitchen is tiny, dirty and only has 5 seats. Staff were good.
