Property Description

The Pickled Frog has been a haven for Hobart travellers since colonial times.

Painted in unmissable Kermit green, our hostel is a landmark on Liverpool Street.

We’ve been voted Hobart’s number one backpacker’s hostel three years running. You don’t get better than that.

We know what backpackers want.
We have the hottest showers and the coldest beers.
Our rooms are the cleanest and our free internet is super-fast.

We know you’ll want to meet new people, make new friends and feel right at home by our open fire.

We have all the shared space you need to curl up in an armchair and upload your selfies in peace or join the happy crowd at the bar and find a partner to play pool.

Our rooms are comfy, our beds are soft and our staff won’t rest until you do.

We’ll be your party house or your place of refuge.

Kick back and relax or rev up for a big night out – The Pickled Frog is your home in Hobart.

From wine, beer and food festivals to hot-ticket arts and music events, Hobart hosts a lot of parties.

The Pickled Frog is a stone’s throw from the best pubs and grub. Our super friendly staff know all the happening spots in town.

If you’re keen to go rugged and explore the great Tassie wilderness, we know what to see and how to get there.

We’ll organise your day trips, plan your hiking routes and help you get around as cheaply as possible.

Or you can climb aboard The Frog bus and we’ll show you plenty of our incredible sights (including some which are off the beaten path) for free. That’s right – for free.

We’re the only backpackers’ hostel offering day-trippers free hiking tours of stunning Mt Field National Park and Mt Amos in the Freycinet National Park.

See the world’s tallest flowering trees or maybe a platypus.

What about breathtaking waterfalls – we’ll take you to the famous Pelverata or Snug Falls.

Maybe the World Heritage-listed Hartz Mountain is on your list?

Or Cape Huay – part of the ‘three capes’ walking track.

We regularly do them all, so take your pick.

And when you come back to town worn out from breathing the world’s cleanest air, we’ll give you free parking, cheap beers during Happy Hour and great company.

Nothing’s too much trouble at The Pickled Frog.


“Amazing, amazing, amazing! One of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in. I met a ton of other backpackers and the staff was just amazing. I wish I could’ve stayed longer.”
Jane, female 18-24, USA

“This is by far one of the best hostels based on the vibe alone. The staff are crazy chill, they organize daily trips most of the week which is great for seeing Hobart affordably and to meet people! The front lounge is sick and good for a drink. They even helped me out with some camping equipment. Definitely one of my favourite hostels.”
Kelly, male 18-24, Canada

“My partner and I couldn't have been happier with this hostel. The atmosphere is lovely, the staff make you feel instantly welcome and there's all sorts of groups of people here to meet. The size of the common area is great, there's plenty of space for everyone”
Cat, female 25-30, England

Overview

Walk along Hobart’s lively Liverpool Street and you can’t miss the Pickled Frog hostel – we’re the one that’s painted bright Kermit green! Inside, we're just as fun! Catch one of our live music or comedy nights – and we offer free (yes, 100% free!) tours to the best local sights, from Mount Wellington to the Tasmanian wilderness. When you get back to the hostel after a day packed with adventure, hit the daily Happy Hour in our bar. Try craft beer and cider, or we serve pretty great coffee if booze isn't your jam.

Location

Travelling around the area from our hostel is super easy – the Liverpool Street bus station is just outside our door. You can get from here to Hobart Airport in an hour for cheap (more cash for cocktails, we say). Get your daily dose of culture at the MONA Museum (45 minutes away on a bus, and we’ll take you there for free), or work up a sweat on Hartz Mountain – it's an hour and 15 minutes away on another of our free tours.

Rooms and Dorms

After a busy day, you’ll be glad to chill out in our spacious and super-comfortable rooms. Choose a private room if you like to have your own schedule, or a mixed or female-only dorm to save some cash. We even throw bed linen and cosy blankets in for free, and there are storage lockers for your stuff.

Extras and activities

Having a quiet day at the hostel? Curl up beside the fire in the cosy lounge or ask around to find a buddy for a game of pool. Or tick off those chores and give your clothes a clean using our washing machines. While you wait, hop on the free Wi-Fi to update your friends back home. Afterwards, cook up some treats in the shared kitchen and watch a movie on the flatscreen TV.

    It is a cool place to stay in the city, close to the shops, pubs and main attractions. The staffs are amazing and the free trips to hiking paces are absolutely the best!!

    Happy to of had a bed for the night although pillows, me an a colleague had were discoloured and yellow! Security surveillance in the car park should be a requirement especially for motorbike travellers! Separation of our riding crew to different rooms was a bit daunting for us but we coped! Happy experience with a friendly environment!

    good vibe and lots of communal spaces. Staff and people staying were all very friendly. The biggest problem are the dorms and bathrooms - when I was there they smelled terrible and desperately needed to be aired out. There was a line of up to 10 girls for one bathroom sink (there were three bathroom sinks for about 50 girls if the place is at capacity) and the floors and area around the sink was disgusting. I would not go here unless you were desperate for a budget place.

The bank beds are no strong enough to hold large people. I booked one night only . I did not sleep in that Room . I have only used the storage room to store my bag pack . I would not recommend to stay in .
