    Surprisingly good standard of room - 3 1/2 star ensuite room for much cheaper than a hotel.

    I had a wonderful stay at Hobart Central YHA with my husband. As it is in the heart of Hobart city, the tour locations are very near to it. Also, the staffs are very generous and kind and helped us as we were new to that place. I will recommend this place for everyone who wants to visit Hobart.

    terrible experience. found all kinds of hairs on the bed sheets provided. no common room. tv room was renovating. not even a table in my room. my roommate and i tried to find the bar which claimed to have a discount for YHA guests and the bar was not even there(we used GPS, so we were sure we were in the correct location).

    No lift! Troublesome for people who carry a big luggage. Hot water supply not consistant during shower.

    Staff were really friendly. The facilities were clean and comfortable. The only thing that I would recommend would be for a larger kitchen as it was very cramped during busy times.

    This is a very well located place to stay; near to the waterfront, the Visitor Information Centre, Bus services, shops. It is older style, (no lift) but clean, good value and has friendly, helpful staff & free WiFi.

    Customer Reviews on

    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 make a booking on, you will be invited by email 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.
