Reviews (2600 guests have reviewed this hostel)
Very tiny kitchen for the size of this hostel, very chaotic during breakfast & dinner time. No lounge room for guests to interact/relax, no tv etc...Location is near to clock tower which rings every hour 24/7 & every 15 mins at certain hours. It can keep you awake all night if you are not used to the noise. There is no lift to get up to 3rd floor. Not ideal place to stay for seniors.

YHA Hobart does not come close to the high standard of mainland Australian YHA hostels. Rooms are crowded, there's no elevator, no separate dining area, not more than two people can cook at a time, too few bathrooms and no parking. This hostel is average at best - unless you have special needs or travel by car.

Very noisy and difficult to sleep - rooms are above a bar with loud music playing. After that there is the traffic lights / pedestrian crossing sounds all night (even with the windows closed). The rooms have few electric points, and do not have individual lights for beds. Individual bathrooms with toilet, basin and shower are nice, but there are only few of them, so if you are desperate for the toilet during a peak time you may have long wait. Tiny kitchen. No common room as under refurbishment.

The staff were awesome and helpful, can't ask for more! The room and furniture were not in he best conditions and room floor rattled. Will be helpful to have a other washer available.

Well placed in the CBD, and close to Constitution Dock. There is a pub next door, the Town Hall clock chimes regularly and we were next to the laundry, so it was noisy.

I found it value for money. The staff were lovely and so helpful. The room was clean. The only downside was how noisy the hostel was.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS ON YHA.COM.AU

YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That’s why when you give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS

If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
