I've stayed at quite a few hostels and accommodation places around the world and this is one I would not return to in a hurry.
The staff are friendly, facilities are OK but the location, whilst central, does not lend itself to a good nights...More
The hostel is well-located, in the heart of the CBD, near the Docks and Salamanca place. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, with heaters for winter. Bathrooms were also clean and showers had hot water (which is not always the case…).
Stayed in a self contained room here that wasn't really any cheaper than the average lower end motel in Australia but what makes this place good is that it is very well located. There are a range of the main attractions of Hobart with a...More

Hi Paul - we are pleased that you enjoyed the hostel. It is certainly convenient to being able to walk to all the main sights in central Hobart and most of the day tours to places like Port Arthur leave from just down the street....More

Hi Olivia - thank you for giving us this feedback, and yes, you are correct - all communal facilities are available to all guests, so we are sorry you experienced some who were less than considerate. If you ever have issues like this at a...More

You can definitely check out early, you just put your sheets in the basket which is near reception and slide your room key under the door as the reception desk isn’t open until like 8am I think from memory (I had to do this at about 6am myself to get the shuttle bus to the airport when checking out during my stay earlier this year) as for the early check in I would say probably not, but you would be able to leave your bags at the hostel until check in time at least while you wander Hobart! As for you being under 18 I can’t answer that part of your question so would be best to call the hostel directly in case you don’t get a reply on here in time :)
