Montgomery sits at a strategic location of Hobart. It's 2 minutes from Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery ( or TMAG) and bus mall, 4 minutes from visitor information centre and woolworth supermarket, 5 minutes from foreshore and the oldest bar in town, Hope & Anchor Tavern, and 10 minutes from the local bar Shamrock and Salamanca Market. You can take advantage of its prime location and walk about the town without wasting much time on transport.
The staff are very hospitable and attentive. Once we inquired information about southern light or aurora and the receptionist was very happy to provide a list of information and updates about aurora in Tasimania. She even printed out 12 pages of information on aurora for us to read. Although we didn't see any aurora in Hobart ( this is purely luck), we were still happy because our wild ideas gained full support from these attentive staff. Without them this journey would be less exciting.
The kitchen is small but it satisfies all the needs. This small kitchen turns out to be a function room when it's time for dinner.In fact the kitchen is the place where we met a lot of guests from other cultural background. And we showed them our cooking skills and chatted over our own travel plans.
There is a TV lounge on the 1st floor but it is rarely utilized by the guests. Maybe because it is very far from the reception and located at a corner. In terms of the bathrooms, you don't have to worry about they are always occupied in the morning or evening because there are plenty of bathrooms on each floor. They are clean, tidy and spacious. A hot water shower can wash away your tiredness and coldness. In each room there is a heater, so the dorm is very warm even in the night.
The only thing that needs improvement is that the quilt is a bit wet. And you may need to wear a pair of ear plugs before sleep just in case the next door is having a party in the mid-night. :( Other than that, this YHA is a great place to stay in Hobart and make friends with same-minded people!
