Off-grid, family-run, Christian hostel
We warmly welcome working-holiday makers, international backpackers, and travellers like you, whatever your background.
Come enjoy our off-grid, family-run, Christian hostel in the beautiful hills of Tasmania's Huon Valley.

We offer warm hospitality, shared meals, a free work shuttle and more, amidst the natural beauty and sustainable rhythms of a 100% off-grid lifestyle.
Beds from $140 a week for guests on a working-holiday or international visa.
6-person dorms • free wifi • free guest/work shuttle • bedding and showers included • separate male and female dorms • 100% off-grid (solar powered) • shared meals (3x weekly) • wood-fired pizza oven • outdoor kitchen • shared veggie garden • walking trails • sports field • volleyball / badminton • multilingual team
Shared Meals + Thoughtful Discussions
At Pilgrim Hill, we share dinner together three times a week. Then we have a discussion from a Christian point of view.
You're welcome to join us for good food and thoughtful discussions, whatever your background. You don't have to be a Christian to join.
We are open about our faith in Jesus Christ. It shapes the way we live. You may want to ask questions about this while you are here, and we are happy to answer, even if your questions are difficult. You're welcome here.
Getting Here + Getting Around
Pilgrim Hill is 35 minutes from Hobart and 15 minutes from Huonville, located at 200 Crouchs Hill Rd, Lucaston.
Coming by car? Be sure to take Cross Rd to Crouchs Hill Rd, and head 2km up into the bush. DO NOT take Franklins Rd - Google may try to lead you via Franklins, but you can't get here from there.
No car? No problem! Take the Tassielink bus to Grove. Tell us when you make a booking that you need a ride, and we can pick you up from the Grove store in the afternoon, at 2:50 (Mon-Fri) or 3:52 (Sat).
Working a local farm job? Our farm shuttle operates morning and evening to sheds and orchards within 15 minutes of Pilgrim Hill.
Book Your Stay
We offer a female and a male dorm room, each with six beds. Your booking includes a locker, wifi, bedding, and a shuttle service.
You'll also get a shower card with a free 5-minute shower per day, which you can save up if you like, or buy extra shower time. (We collect our own rainwater for showers, so need to be sure there is enough for everyone.)
All bookings require a $60 deposit. Your remaining bill will be due each week.
Our weekly discount applies if you stay 7 days or more. The discount applies to your full stay, even if your final week is not a complete week.
- For guests on a working holiday visa or other international visa, or for local guests working on local farms and orchards.
- For standard travellers visiting the beautiful Huon Valley.
To book beds in both the male and female dorms, leave your dorm selection empty (—). You will be able to select number of beds on the next page.
