The hostel is centrally located in Hobart. That is it's great advantage. However that does come at a cost as it's located on one of the busiest streets in Hobart, both day and night, with large trucks as well as cars passing. Beneath its many rooms and dormitories is a bar. It's a very nice bar, but its patrons can be very noisy in the late evening.
The hostel staff are friendly and efficient and do their best to keep the hostel clean & neat. Some of their guests, however, need a lesson or two on social living and how to pick up and clean up after themselves.
The common room and kitchen are small and workable. Large common spaces are unnecessary in a town with a wealth of affordable and pleasant places to eat, drink and play. I enjoyed my stay and look forward to a return visit. Hobart certainly has a lot to offer.
