This is second time i have stayed at the little devils, I prefer to stay in my own tent as it is the cheaper option,and the best way to get to meet new people,During summer it is very easy to get a job close to the hostel and sometimes transport is supplied. Woolworths is ten minutes walk and most afternoons...

First couple weeks I stay in the main building-well they have couple different building- .the room was good , the cleanliness very good ,surprisingly my mattress is real one too not just thin foam like in other backpacker that I experience in other places. I came specifically for cherry season . I came early far before the season start ....

My boyfriend and I came here wanting to see the southern part of Tasmania and to complete our 417 farm work. As soon as we got here, the staff sorted us out with work and a spot to pitch our tent. They were really helpful and friendly. Neither of us had a valid licence so the owner drove us forty...

I gotta admit that I'd read all those bad reviews prior to my arrival and wasn't so sure about coming here, but now that I've been staying here for 4 months, I'd say I made a right decision coming here. I stay in the camp site(the best) and I had so many great nights to remember with all those great...

I have stayed for 3 - 4 months. David who is owner in this backpackers. He gave me jobs twice. If you want to get jobs, there is pretty good. And many kind of nationality people lives in there. You can make a lot of friends. If I can, I want to come back here.

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...

Hi Alfie, Thank you for you review, however you may have forgotten to mention that you hadn't even finished the check-in process before I got you your first high paying cherry job. I even personally escorted you down to the farm on your first day. I think you may also have forgotten to mention the well paid hourly apple job...

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...

Hi Yentltoet, yes thank you for your review. My initial reaction however, is that a couple of things don't ring true. If the place was so horrible as you say, why stay for 4 months? You could have easily checked out with a full refund of your security deposit no questions asked. In fact security deposits are always returned in...
