What others are saying about us
Wonderful hostel with great wifi, friendly staff who try their best to know everyone’s names. Fantastic community areas with free access to 4 computers and televisions. Work (farmwork) is usually quite easy to obtain, just ask at reception. Overall the Little Devil Backpackers is a great place to stay comfortably for a few weeks while you look for work/work/hang out/relax.
Good people & fun
I stayed at the the Little Devil Backpackers over the Summer. David and Val were great at helping me find a job and get comfortable in Huonville. The other people living in the hostel were a lot of fun. The monthly BBQs hosted by David and Val are also worth getting involved in. The positioning of the LDB is great as it is an easy walk to the centre of Huonville… Plus there is a great pizza place next door. Thanks for all your help and for the memories.
Great working hostel
Some of the kindest people work here I have met in my travels. David Val and Andy were the most helpful anyone could be in assisting my friends and I in finding work. We where invited to BBQ’s and generally treated like one big crazy international family. You cannot beat the hostel for atmosphere and working to get your 88 days signed off. I have made some fantastic friends there, particularly with the staff.
