There is a great range of accommodation within easy walking distance of Hobart Breathing Space - here are just a few options:
Hobart Hostel – Extremely close to Hobart Breathing Space (and therefore everything else in the city centre). Friendly with spacious common areas and a safe and peaceful vibe.
Nararra (Hostel) – Friendly, basic, family run hostel, for the “no frills” traveller. Just a block away from Hobart Breathing Space. Free wifi in common rooms.
The Pickled Frog (Hostel) – Just around the corner from Hobart Breathing space. Central location with a cool hipsterish vibe and a good bar. “Free wifi, free car parks, huge lounge, cheap beer, a wolf, real coffee, lotsa love, tour info & bookings, games, free movies, carbon neutral & much more.” Free shuttle bus and wifi.
The Brunswick Hotel (hotel/hostel) – A bit of a stylish hangout in the CBD about 5 minutes walking distance from the Breathing Space with shared dorms and options for more mid-range private rooms. Very clean and crisp rooms and a pub/restaurant that can get pretty busy at night. Stylish pub and restaurant, wifi, guest laundry.
Best Western (international four star hotel) – Towering over the Hobart Breathing Space, recently upgraded with comfy beds and fresh, clean, well-kept rooms with balconies (and free room service!) Wifi included.
Harrington’s 102 – More casual, mid-range hotel suites. A few steps away from Hobart Breathing Space and a few steps away from the city centre! Not sure about Wifi.
Astor Private Hotel – A few minutes’ walk away, something to suit all budgets, economy to ensuite. ABA member Jen says “Room rate includes a continental breakfast. Simple and tidy and the owner is a blast!”
Airbnb – A great way to experience ‘real’ Hobart accommodation, at affordable rates. Sharing the household with the homeowners, or spreading out in a whole apartment. It’s easy to find a nice private room for less than a hostel, and a whole apartment gives you space and all the amenities of a home, often for much less than a hotel!
