Reviewed 20 April 2007

This place advertised itself as superior backpacker accomodation and this is exactly what it is. It does have six private rooms with private ensuite (for those who do not want the dorm experience) located within the hostel itself. I booked myself into one of these over two nights since everywhere else in Hobart was booked out solid due to some car rally from Apr 20 - 23.

The private room may be very good by backpacker standards, but I don't think it makes 3 stars by tourist or business traveller standards. Even though the queen bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean and worked (including old fashion wall heating and wall mounted TV), the room itself was quite compact and did not have any tables or chairs for when you wanted to have people over.

In addition, there were only drop down blinds, not curtains, which failed to block out any street lighting nor retain any heating within the room. While the ensuite was a decent size, the shower stall was very compact and may not fit a..ahem..big person comfortably. Only small packaged soap is provided and ironing facilities available from communal laundry.

Hostel itself is only 3 stories high and located along busy Macquarie St. You do get some street noise coming through all day and night in addition to the sounds of young people coming and going. To be fair, I'd think you experience this at any other establishment in the Hobart CBD attractive to young people and where the rates are cheap.

Reception is NOT 24 hours, but the level of service is good for the kind of establishment it is.

Would I stay again ? Probably not because there is better value to be had elsewhere. I paid a rate of $91 for the two nights and for just $20 or so a night more, you can book a web deal or special with a 4 star tourist/business standard hotel. Just remember to book early and avoid high season if possible.
