A thoroughly average place in my opinion. Typical backpacker hostel really - fairly clean, a lot smaller and more worn down than it looks in the pictures but still ok, a heater (yay) but no toiletries or tea/coffee/food which I did get at my last hostel. Felt safe and didn’t stink of booze and cigarettes unlike some places I have been. Not a bad place at all I want to be clear about that. I am mostly disappointed by the cost to quality/amenity ratio; for the price of 1 person for 1 night here my last hostel hosted two people for two nights and complimentary breakfast and tea/coffee was included. It was a similar season too. Not sure if it’s a Hobart thing or just this place in particular but overall: it costs a lot for what you get in my opinion.

Not Happy Jan

My expectations for this hotel were extremely low to begin with. I didn't book this accommodation because it looked fancy. At the end of the day, I only chose to stay here because it was cheap and located just around the corner from the venue I was attending a function at over the weekend. The staff were friendly upon check in and check out but took it upon themselves to charge my credit card for another guests accommodation as well as my own just because I happen to check in at the same time as them. My friend also booked a room at the hotel under his own name and on a completely separate booking. We checked in at the same time and checked out together. We didn't speak to anyone on checkout except for handing our keys over at the desk. The next day I see that I have been charged twice for my accommodation. After 3 calls over 2 days to the hotel and finally speaking with the Manager, he tried to tell me that my friend had pulled a swifty over his staff by telling them to charge his friends (me) credit card when they had trouble processing the payment on his. It turned out the issue was them entering his credit card number incorrectly. I know this to be rubbish because we both left the hotel at the same time and didn't speak to anyone about payment. The staff just assumed that they could charge my credit card for my friends accommodation because we were there at the same time regardless of the fact that we booked under different names and on completely different bookings.

Hello, such a long review !!!! you do know, your reservation plus your friend was a set up at the time of leaving, because your friend did not have money to pay his two nights on a private en-suite room. Beside taking me for a ride still make a nonsense comments.

Pros: Location

"Cheap but not nasty"!

Pros: It's very friend manager / owner & it's closeness to the city and bay (i.e. all within easy walking distance).
Very basic but more than suitable for the "average joe"!

Super comfy queen ensuite

Room was immaculate, with lots of blankets and a room heater provided. Bed was really soft (great for me, but I'd call ahead if you have a bad back) with memory foam pillows. 24/hr secure access was very helpful. Walls were quite thin, so I could overhead spoken conversations next door, and there was some traffic noise on Monday morning, but overall I had a very pleasant stay.
