Stayed in the garden 'camp side' of Little Devils for 3 months. With the possibility to hang out in the other buildings as well. Enough space for cooking, a big walk in fridge and many hang out spots. Val & David are running the place in an open minded way, the $1 for every shower is only a bit weird....

Poorly organised, was advised that I could hitch hike to a strawberry farm I didn't know the location of after signing up and receiving a picking number. This was the extent of their "helping with employment" The facilities are awful and falling to pieces, it's also incredibly dirty. You need to pay a $200 security deposit (normal), $40 for pots...

I stayed for almost four months at this hostel. If you’re in Huonville for just a couple of days or maybe even up to two weeks this hostel is fine but the longer you stay the more you realize all the things that are wrong with this place and its management. Upon arrival I had to pay a $200 security...

I stayed here for roughly 4 months (September 2015 - January 2016) whilst getting my 88 days farm work completed. This hostel is fine for a week or so but not for a long term stay. The hostel is made of 4 parts in one establishment - an actual hostel (which sleeps roughly 35 people), a dorm room (sleeps 16...

This hostel was the most disgusting place I have ever seen. Not only that but they try to get every penny out of you they possibly can. Upon arrival you are presented with a contract which states you must pay $200 deposit per person. If you leave the hostel without giving them 3 nights notice, you lose your deposit. If...

An interesting review from someone who never spent more than 5 minutes at reception, never saw a room and never said a word or asked a single question or sought any form of clarification whatsoever in relation to hostel policy concerning the security deposit or any other matter and never cancelled her booking. As a sign of goodwill Alicia was...
