3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
The host was very nice and friendly. Great breakfast. The property was on a busy street. A lovely period home but was not cared for outside or in. Christmas decorations in our room that had a view of the construction behind. The pictures don't really represent the present condition of the property. Needs TLC. The shared bathroom had not been very clean.

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
The house is an old historical looking house. The shared shared bathrooms were great. They have a large kitchen you can use as well. The beds were comfortable and there was a heater in the room for chilly night. Kevin was an amazing host. He made a delicious breakfast every morning. I was also able to store my bags in the store room so I could go do an excursion the day I checked out before my flight. Would definitely recommend for a couple or single looking to stay close to city center. I was able to walk home from the harbor with no issues.

Lowena is only a short walk from the harbour, markets, and shops, yet so much more affordable than the big fancy places! Kevin was a fantastic host with his large bottomless cooked breakfast and coffee, and very knowledgeable on everything Hobart. Our king room was perfect and the bed so super comfy!
