The Alabama is a small art-filled hotel offering boutique budget rooms in the heart of Hobart. Please note that all rooms have shared bathrooms, there are no rooms with a private or en suite bathroom. If this is not your style, we understand, but please be aware of this before staying and / or reviewing. Each room has a small fridge, a heater, hanging space for your clothes and a fan for warmer weather. Hobart is rarely hot, air-conditioning is not needed here. Even on that rare hot day, the city cools down at night and the windows open to let in a breeze. It is perfectly safe to have a window open at night while you sleep. Tea and coffee is available to purchase from reception, which is open from 8am - 9pm daily. There are no tea making facilities in the rooms. Our inner city location means we do not have off street parking. Unless you're planning a longer trip through Tasmania we wouldn't recommend hiring a car for your stay at the Alabama as inner city parking costs do add up.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

You can't get a better location than this, and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, no loud noises woke us up overnight and the whole experience couldn't have gone more smoothly. Each floor had a male and female bathroom consisting of 2 spacious shower areas and a toilet cubicle and a separate hand basin area. I was never waiting for a shower, but could have used a bathroom on the other floor if so. The lounge/bar area was very social and welcoming, and I loved the decor. The street entrance was so small we walked past it the first time, but once inside it opens up into a large space. Very happy The Alabama Hotel was able to accommodate us.

We stayed at the Alabama Hotel for about a week and first we thought the shared bathrooms could be a small issue for us, but the shared facilities were clean and had no line-ups in the morning. Our room was small but very comfortable, clean and had everything you could ask for. The hotel 'living room' / public area and bar is fantastic and the staff is more than helpful and very nice. This hotel is highly recommended if you are on a budget and are after a fun and friendly environment to call home for a few days.

Small boutique hotel centrally located and close to supermarket in the centre of town. Walking distance to harbour and most sites and good restaurants. People who run the place are young and dedicated.. good communication skills and love what they're doing. Share bathroom was not as bad as I thought.. nice locally made soap:) Communal lounge was clean and comfortable with loads of natural light. Totally recommend and will return.

Located right in the centre of Hobart and only a short walk to the marina, this lovely boutique hotel had comfortable and clean rooms and good shared bathrooms which were never too busy to use. The property has an excellent bar area to chill in and enjoy a drink from a wonderful selection of local craft beers, amongst other things. The hosts are welcoming and helpful and great to chat to. Absolutely loved this place.

Friend and I stayed for a night during a hiking trip and wish we could have stayed longer. We arrived and left outside of reception hours, host was accommodating and easy to communicate with. The style and set up was so cool, had lots of personal touches and location was awesome!

Great place to stay if you are in Hobart and looking for accommodation that offers a quirky but warm atmosphere. Travelling with three generations can be challenging but the Alabama was suitable for the whole family. Lovely, clean rooms, comfortable beds and in the city centre. The Alabama is great place to stay if you are after value for money. You can also get out of your room and meet some fellow traveler’s in the lounge for afternoon happy hour. Sure you have to share a bathroom but the water is hot the bathrooms are spotless. The Alabama is a great place to stay if you are looks for something a little different. Fantastic experience.

Tip: Woolsworth is a quick walk down the street. There are many shops there including a nail salon, coffee, and a liquor store.

I like the glass bottled water they offered.

Shower was hot. I never had to wait to use the shades bathroom.

There are stairs, no elevator.

The room was very spacious. It had a fan, fridge, plenty of lights, electrical outlets.

I liked the main lobby area. WiFi worked well all over the building.

The guests looked mature. It wasn’t a hostel vibe. It felt like a European hotel.

Workers were very friendly.

If you do selfies, check out all of the great walls in the hotel. They shoot nicely.

If you arrive late, be sure to get the door code! They use WhatsApp. It saved my life when I realized I was flying into Hobart after 9 PM. The staff got me the check in details within minutes. There was no need for me to panic when I realized last minute that I might not be able to get inside the hotel so late! Bless them.

Love the soap. It’s a very eco-conscience spot.

Place smelled so good!

Be sure to stock up on food. Shops close early and you may be stuck hungry without snacks in your fridge.

This place is fantastic. Quirky, comfortable and reasonably priced hotel smack bang in the centre of town. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Great selection of craft beers at the bar and super homely common area and balcony to relax and have a beer after taking in the sights of Hobart.

Hi CTRocks! Sorry for the delayed response (we're not on TripAdvisor on the reg!) but it looks like past guests have all hit the nail on the head. Our bedrooms are all private but none have ensuites—we have two bathrooms on each of our two floors. Booking directly through our website is best! You're always welcome to email us with any queries, too. See you in March?
