    Stayed here actually for 3 nights. All of which were good. Close to the center yet far enough away.”

    Pro good rate and comfy bed. Con check in is a bit late, and bathrooms could use more cleaning... also shower head is kinda akward. Otherwise great price for the value that u spend.

    This hotel is really a good value for money. location is also good. only complaint will be, I guess, that there was no fan in the private room. It was okay at night but hot during the day

    Great value for money!”

    Great little backpackers, just outside Hobarts CBD. I really enjoyed staying here. The staff were friendly, helpful and accomodating. Breakfast was included in the price and was very decent. Toast, cereal, tea, coffee, orange juice etc... They even supplied morning papers to read over breakfast. I was attending a course in town for the week so not the usual backpacker. I would suggest bringing some earplugs though as I had some of the worst snorers ever in my dorm, but once I worked this out I slept very well. The mattresses are thin foam ones but good enough to sleep on. The hotel looks to employ other backpacker from around the globe to do the cleaning etc... which makes perfect sense due to their multi lingual capacity. Their is also a small kitchette avalable for lunch and dinner preparation and a fridge which was very handy. All in all a very positive experience, one I would definitely recommend to others. I for one will be returning if I'm down that way again. 🙂

    Excellent everything”

    Service was too excellent given I was staying in mixed dormitory. Bed was comfortable for good sleep and they provide all basic needs breakfast, towel and soap unlike other backpackers hostels. Only drawback is little away from city center about 10 mins walking, but it should not be a problem if you are looking for a comfortable sleep and good service in budget.

    More like a hostel than a hotel”

    The best thing was the meals. They were generous & very well cooked & very tasty. There is a 24 hour bottleshop in the rear carpark which is handy.

    Our stay was not good at all, We started with no Tv in the room & after a complaint they took one from another room & the cables were not right & so I could only get 2 channels & you had to make sure you were not standing in particular parts of the room or you couldnt get reception at all. There was no A/C and of course it was hot so the window had to stay open which looked down onto the beer garden & on a Saturday night the noise continued till 2am. No sleep possible. When you look online it doesnt tell you that the rooms are ontop of a pub. Great for some but not all. The water pressure in the shower was terrible. No tea or coffee in the rooms, they have a tea room down the hall, not very convenient really.

    Super quiet area. View of waterfall. Pub.

    Quite a small room, old fashioned. 40ish minutes from Cradle Mountain. Not much to do in Waratah itself, including food. Lucky the food in the pub below is good. Shared bathroom is clean.
