This was my first time at a youth hostel and didn't know what to expect. It was excellent and the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful.

This hostel is in an excellent location, within walking distance of most major attractions or bus stops. I cannot rate the staff highly enough. They were always helpful in giving information and dealing with individual difficulties. (I had trouble charging my phone and I was lent a charger; Nadia arranged to have some left clothing posted on)I enjoyed the movie night with free pop corn, and the afternoon walk to spot a platypus - which we did!) Small but adequate kitchen and comfy lounge.

Hobart Central YHA was fantastic. It is at an incredible location 2 minutes walk from the harbour, shops and tourist information. 5 minutes walk from Salamanca Markets. The staff were friendly and the rooms, kitchen and toilets were all clean and well maintained. The kitchen was a bit small but it was still usable with several people in there. Facilities like the kitchen and bathrooms were slightly dated but still functional. I will definately return when I come back to Hobart in the future!

Quite noisy for sleeping with a bar downstairs and thin walls. The kitchen area is very small. Otherwise a great location and value for money.

YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That’s why when you give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

We will not publish inappropriate and/or offensive comments.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language, swearing or references to illicit drug usage.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS
