    Clean facilities, and I love your friendly staffs. They borrowed us umbrellas because that day was raining cats and dogs. Definitely recommend my friends to choose YHA Hobart Central! -Joyce

    It is right beside the bar which has live music from about 8ish until 11:30pm from Wednesday night onwards and the. band may as well have been in my room it was that loud and clear. When you have to catch an airport bus at 4:30am the next day it isn't great. Band was good, though.

    Enjoyed my stay here very much! The staff were lovely, the cleaner even found me sleeping in lounge (I arrived very early in the morning) and went straight to clean the room I was staying in so I could check in. The lounge was average, you wouldn't know there was one there if you weren't on the first floor. The kitchen is also very small, however they did keep it very clean and plenty of kitchen appliances. No lifts so if your on the top floor it's a bit of a climb. Also, if you're taller than 5"3 you have to bend down to wash your hair. Overall, the place was very tidy and staff were always friendly! Will stay here again if I come back to Hobart.

    Nice hostel with friendly staff. The kitchen is quite small, the TV room is a bit far off, so you dont really meet that many other people.

    I was amazed at the number of bathrooms in this hostel. Never had to wait for a shower or toilet. TV lounge is on 1st floor. Kitchen is on the ground floor.

    Very, very dusty; my son and I both have hay-fever and were both sneezing continuously. Also the heater thermostat was not working properly (staff advised that they should have been serviced but were not) and the blankets were not very warm so we froze at night. Windows streaked with dirt and window blind dirty. Staff helpful but overall poor value for money.

    Very poor kitchenarea, poor lounge, no rooms to meet people. Very noisy (street and bar). Uncomfortable and old bed/ matress.

    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.
