Room had not been cleaned properly and a chair or table to put things would have been a help. Upgraded bathroom on level 3 was very good.

I had an awful nights sleep. I ended up having a room to myself, but people kept walking in and out of my room all night. I complained to the staff and they didnt care, just shrugged. The linen was dirty and pillow smelt odd. I am going to issue a formal complaint for refund.

Grat accommodation on a budget.

Pros: Close to Salamanca. Close to many tourist attractions. Clean and convenient.
Cons: Staff could be a little better with the language. They could open up on time.
Location: In the heart of Hobart and within walking distance to many great attractions and eateries.
Hotel staff struggled with the English language, but friendly none the less. Great accommodation for the price. Interesting rabbit warren of rooms and levels.
