My friends and I stayed here during January holidays for a total of 4 nights and were most pleased to call this place our base. There are no hidden expenses, the WiFi was free (although a daily overall limit which is generous), comfortable beds, very clean and modern bathrooms/ showers and a good kitchen cleaned thoroughly each day. The sitting... More

Excellent service however this hostel needs an upgrade - particularly the furniture. My husband and I shared a private room and the bed was terrible - we could feel the springs of the bed and on further inspection we found that the bed slats had been held in place (not very well) with tape. A lot of the furniture around... More

This quiet old building is boutique without compromising facilities - rooms are spacious and well-ventilated, kitchen is huge and well-stocked, couches are comfy and reception staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful! Very accommodating for late arrival times, and the hostel itself is kept very comfortably secure. Seven of us stayed on the top floor for a total of 3 nights,... More

I stayed 3 nights at this Hostel and loved the experience. The crew is pretty helpful, the atmosphere is calm and good and you have some freedoms like: the kitchen is open overnight, you can buy beers in the hostel for $2 and things like that! Definitely recommend!

With a beautiful spot next to the river, the Arthouse is a great place to base yourself to explore Launceston. Comfortable, clean and conscientious staff make the Arthouse my bet for future stays. Talk to the owner Peter about their exciting projects in making The Arthouses carbon footprint zero impact. Perfect example of a group of people doing the right... More

I spent three nights here in a female dorm room and had a great time. The city centre of Launceston is a short walk away, as is the Museum and the amazing Blue Café. I was in a room on the first floor which has access to the balcony that overlooks the river. Peaceful location with friendly, helpful and knowledgeable... More

Stayed in the Arthouse for two nights.. Rang last minute over the Xmas period so it was quite busy but the staff shuffled rooms to ensure they could put me and my boyfriend in the same room.. The rooms are big bright and clean. Bathrooms are newly finished, showers nice and hot! There are two big lounge areas to hang... More

I spent two nights in the Arthouse with some friends and we really loved the place! Good prices, comfortable rooms (and beds!!!) as well as clean bathrooms and kitchen! The location is good, walkable distance from the city centre and from the amazing Cataract Gorge. The staff is very friendly and they gave us good suggestions about things to do... More

Stayed there for a night with 5 other friends. The staff is really friendly and helpful! They can suggest what to do on our quick stop in Launceston. We got the room in the top floor, the view is nice. The atmosphere is nice and artsy, bathrooms are very clean and the kitchen + common room are just perfect. Totally... More
