This Hobart backpacker accommodation is in prime position to take advantage of everything Hobart has to offer! Attached to Hobart Central YHA is the pub Tom McHugos - stop by for delicious, value-for-money meals. The bars and restaurants at Salamanca Place are filled with locals and backpackers alike, especially in summer.
It's a beautiful walk from the hostel along the foreshore to Constitution Dock, Salamanca Markets and the historic homes of Battery Point. If you're interested in art, both the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery and the Salamanca Arts Centre are a short walk from the hostel and the Museum of Old and New Art - also known as MONA - is just a ferry ride away.
