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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

The Pickled Frog is a very comfortable hostel with plenty of common rooms for lounging, and a shared kitchen that was never too crowded. My private room had windows that open for air circulation, but no view beyond the windows of the rooms across the hall. The bunk bed was reasonably comfortable, and there was a sink in my room....

Hey there - thanks heaps for taking the time to say such nice things about us! We are currently planning on putting in an upstairs garden so that the room you stayed in will have a nice garden view instead of the current one. Hopefully you can come and check it out next time.

The Pickled Frog is a nice Hostel although very, very busy. Me and my girlfriend had to stay in seperate rooms in order to stay here. That was fine, but it helped to build my impression that the Pickled Frog is like a small music festival everybody wants to go to. We couldn't really enjoy the atmosphere. I recommend to... More

One of the best, maybe even the best hostel I stayed at during my year in Australia. Nice room, good prices, many nice places to hang out and most of all, amazing staff! They are really friendly and really helped us to discover what to see and do in and around Hobart. I really recommend this place to everyone!
