Nice place with great staff. Located approximately 15 min walk from the harbour. A little old but huge rooms and good breakfast included. Nice, local pub in the house and wine and beer shop at the backside, where you also have parking.

My room was very dated with a musty smell. It was clean, I don't blame the cleaners for this at all. It smelt like everything was old- the carpet, the bed, the curtains. Nothing has been replaced in years. The bed was lumpy. The sink for my room was - wait for it - not in the bathroom. It's just...

This little pub has great live music and good food. The accommodation was basic but clean and not too far from the centre of town. We had a bathroom in our dorm room with the only downside being the basin was in the room itself and difficult to use as the bed was so close to it. Would recommend they...

Rooms had no ventilation and guests also staying...

This place is quite good for a meal or a drink with friends. It has a separate dining area for those who prefer not to be in the sports bar. It is not far from the CBD about a 10 minute walk. Great for watching live games.

It's not world class, but very friendly and really great for the money. Best stay we had on Tasmania. Started the stay by getting into a dorm with to extremely smelly people and the staff had us moved right away to another room giving us discount on the stay and doing everything they could to get us comfortable again.

Waratah hotel & pub ('The TAH' by the locals...) is perfectly located close to everything in Hobart and has a good vibe and helpful staff. The room was quite spacy and very clean, with a large shower and nice view of Hobart rooftops (3rd floor). A special bonus for chilly Tassie - electric blankets! :) Complimentary breakfast is continental and...
