House Rules:

We are definitely not a party hostel. We have a strict no noise policy after 11pm so we ask all guests to please respect this.

Cancellation is at least 24 hours prior to your booking. If cancelled last minute or in the case of a 'no show' the cost of the entire first night will be charged. This is so we don't get stuck with empty beds. If you have extenuating circumstances, please contact us. We may be able to assist you.

Please note groups of 5 or more are required to settle the total balance of the booking upon check in. Please keep this in mind if members of your group are planning to arrive at different times, as they will not be able to check in until the total price of the room is paid. Prior payment can be taken over the phone is required.

During peak season (November - March) we require a bond of $200 for groups of 5 or more to be taken at the time of check in. This will be returned at the end of your stay, ensuring that no policies were broken/breached by any members of the group. Please email us directly for more information if required.

Our car park is locked between 8pm and 8am (May - Oct) and 9pm - 8am (November - April) for your security. This means there is no access between those times. If you need to leave the car park outside of these times we recommend parking on the street outside the hostel. This is free between 6pm - 8:30am weekdays and free all day/night Saturday/Sunday.

    Nice place to stay for one night or 2 not more. We had problems finding a seat whenever we wanted to eat so we stop eating there...

    Friend and I stayed here for nearly a week on a last minute trip to Hobart & had such a blast! It’s really convenient to get pretty much anywhere from the hostel (we had a car) without any problems. The staff are friendly && the guests were chill. Outlets are super poorly placed in the 12 bedroom though so bring portable chargers!

    Stayed here for one night and it had a comfy bed, so it was easy to sleep in. The main common area was busy with people, which made it easy to meet other backpackers. The bathroom, however, was quite small. There are only two sinks, so at peak hours, there would be kind of a line/ people huddling around to use the sinks.

    I was in the top bunk so accessing the plug was a bit of a pain as it was right overtop of the head for the person on the lower bunk. Your supposed to put your bag under the bed but I had a long term resident on the lower bunk so there was no room.

    Very cool hostel! The staff was super friendly and helpful! The beds and sheets were clean, although the showers in the girls' bathroom could use an upgrade and be cleaner... But if you're staying in Hobart, I think this hostel is definitely a good option.

    If you're looking for a quiet place to stop in a night the nook may be for you. However if staying longer I would suggest staying elsewhere. The place is decidedly bland and the common area is largely silent populated by a group of people unwilling to talk to one another. In addition, the washroom and kitchen facilities leave room for improvement and were not clean, especially the showers. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere with some character.
