This accommodation was included as part of a tour, otherwise I would not have stayed here as it is very expensive. The rooms are nice and the bathrooms are nice but the kitchen is very small and crowded, I don't think it's big enough for everyone.

Friendly staff, free Wifi, clean rooms. Nothing fancy, the kitchen and lounge are very small compared to the amount of guests. There isn't an elevator. Prepare yourself for a bit of a challenge if you have to get all your luggage up to the third floor. The YHA organises activities on certain nights. The location is very central, close to...

This can be a good choice if you just need a place a sleep. I picked up my car from Thrifty just next to it the next morning, the airport shuttle stand and Hobart Harbour is just a block away. I like the bathroom/toilet the most as it's not shared and each has a hairdryer, unlike other YHA where you...

We are a family and plan have a good dinner in YHA Central, But the size of kitchen is very small, especially there are two tables, one for six persons, another for two. Then the kitchen door should open all day long, in case that the smell of the kitchen goes worse. The family room is clean but small. Each...

We paid 36 aud for a dorm room and we can't sleep ! Horrible noise.. street and operating work on the street. The window don't stop anything. We choose this one for the location and because it was a YHA but I think have a look at another one.

I stayed here as part of a tour package deal, shared 4 bed dorm for 3 nights. The one positive is friendly staff. The negatives are many ... 1. The kitchen has one sink, two kettles, two tosters, one set of four hotplates, two fridges, and six places to sit. This is to serve over 100 guests!! You cannot cook...

I stayed in single rooms, with and without ensuite. Ensuite room small but as good as any motel with fridge and flat screen TV. Location is perfect one block from waterfront, 2 blocks from Elizabeth St Mall. Only downsides are no lift, so lots of stairs to upper floors and noise of pedestrian crossing warning sounds at nearby crossroad are...

My niece and friend have come to visit so I booked a family room in the yha so that we could be right there in Hobart. Just opposite Tmag and in Argyle Street you can be on the waterfront in 5 or in the mall just as soon as. The room has double bed and two bunk beds. Small but...

We paid for an ensuite room, which was comfortable for a week, though basic. No aircon (which made a summer stay unpleasant). Noisy street. Dodgy shower. Kitchen too small to use, and no opportunities to meet other travelers- very limited communal space. But close to town, lovely walk to the docks, and the staff were WONDERFUL. very kind and helpful...

Disappointing. Smelly, unclean room that backs on to the main street and is extremely loud. Bathroom large but not clean - wet towels and hair all over the floor. Kitchen small, one table with 6 chairs to service the many guests. Felt sorry for a young man who broke a glass and no broom to sweep up. The caretaker was...
