The mattress, the pillows and the sheets are all really old and uncomfortable. You can feel the spring of the mattress, the carpet seems was never vacuum or clean in anyway. The dogs are all around (even the rooms) and they're stinky and peeing in the halls. The kitchen it's dirty too (the staff don't clean it or if they...

An original atmosphere and place. The staff is available and is happy to advise you to organize your trip in Hobart. The rooms an bathrooms are clean. It is exactly what we expected before going there. Good location in Hobart.

I had a 2 night stay during my solo trip in Tassie in September. It is very accommodating and a cozy place to stay and meet new travellers. The real fireplace and small bar made a perfect setting to spend your nights in. Also kuddos to the staff for creating the vibes. Only reason why I gave one point less...

To be fair the Pickled Frog is pretty old and run down. I think polite real estate people refer to a building like this as having character. It has a tonne of character. Lots of cool art and a bit of a maze like feel. Kitchen is functional, the bunks steel and rickety, power points sparse and unreachable, but like...

I first didn't know what Hostel to chose but I m glad I chose the Frog! It's right in the center of Hobart and very easy to find because of its bright green veneer. Its a pretty big hostel with a nice common area where its very easy to meet new people. Since its my first trip alone in Australia...

My partner suggested to stay here when we planned to travel to Hobart. We booked a double room so we could have the room to ourselves and we were happy with the price at $70 a night. We booked our stay for two nights. There is a luggage room available if you arrive early before the check in time at...

One of the best hostels I've stayed in! The common areas are fantastic, loads of couches, open fires and a bar as well! The staff are so friendly, not once I would walk in the front door and not been greeted by a 'hey' or 'how was your day'. The long term guests are also really nice to you. It's...
