    Great Stay”

    We stayed at budget triple (located at 3rd floor) for 2 adults and 2 toodlers. The room was spacious enough. This is our first stay in the hotel that we will use shared bathroom, at first we afraid if it is not clean enough, but we are totally wrong, the shared bathroom was suspicious, clean, hot water running well. There are 2 shared bathroom for 3-4 rooms (I forgot exactly). We never queue the shared bathroom during our stay (2 nights). Please do note, that budget room doesn't have air conditioning, but Tasmania weather (Iam stay at mid March) is cool enough, so we just open the window, let the fresh air comes through. The amenities was okay, water kettle, tea, and coffee are provided in room. NO ELEVATOR, so we lift our big luggage by our self to 3rd floor. First floor is gaming room and bar. Second floor is rooms with attached bathroom. Location wasn't at the main precint, but it still close to Salamanca, just walk pass the beautiful St.David Park. The other public facilities is : - Each of washer and dryer that cost AUD $5 /load/cycle that you can use before 8pm, Because after 8pm, the hotel feared the sound of both machine it will disturbing guests hotel.. - Large refrigerator provided. - Free light breakfast such as cereal, toast, yogurt on the go, tea and coffee.

    While the room rates are of good value and include a light breakfast if you have a car it is an extra $12 to access the hotel car park. In Hobart most hotel car parks are free, with a security code to control the use.. For this hotel you pay $12 to get the security code.

    Visit there in July, and the room although with no heater is still warm and nice. The breakfast also gives us good food source in the early morning. Location very near to CBD, with lots of restaurant within 10 minutes walking distance. Salamanca market is also in the park right opposite the hotel. The staff is also very friendly and helpful.

    The stay over the weekend is really pleasant. Walking distance to Hobart CBD, the staff is really helpful, and the cleanliness of the room is satisfactory. It is only that at some nights the music may be overwhelming from the bar downstairs, but during the stay we didn't mind it at all.

    Staff were friendly, funny and helpful. Room was clean and roomy and even had a bath as well. It has a great atmosphere, I would definately stay there again.

    It was great, friendly staff makes a big difference, the room was great, I thought because of the cheapest price it was going to be a bit of a dive, the room was clean, spacious and even had a bath, which is hard to find in hotels without a big price tag. Have told my friends to give this hotel a go as it is so close to all the night spots.

    Location, Friendly Staff, Free car park

    Located in the heart of Hobart, close to everything - harbour, Salamenca market. Free carpark. Very friendly staff. However, it can be quite noisy at night since there is a pub and game room downstairs and right on a road junction.

    disappointed”

    When we went to our room we found that it had not been cleaned since the previous guests had used it. Bed not made, overflowing ashtray. smoke smell in room. Had to leave and come back in another hour before we could access our room to allow for cleaning. We ordered Irish Stew, it was under cooked, chewy steak and had no flavour.

    It looks not so good from the outside but the room that I stayed (March 1-5, 4 nights) was spacious. Just that it was cold in the room even with the heater turned on. I had to work in the hotel, so needed to wear a lot in order to keep warm, also trying to drink lot of hot tea and coffee.

    The hotel is located in a very good location. Free parking is also kind of competitive advantage as it's difficult to find parking on the street. However, the room is not clean enough, especially the washroom.
