You will never meet a more friendly and helpful staff! Whether it's something with your stay or if you need travel tips, they will give you what you ask for and more (in a hood way). Launceston isn't the most fun place on earth but I will miss this place because I will miss having conversations and getting help from... More

I only stayed for in night at the Arthouse during by brief mid-week visit to Launceston. When I phoned up to book a room I spoke to Grant, it was a nice friendly conversation with a couple of chuckles - it set the mood the mood quite nicely for my arrival. When I arrived at the Arthouse it was to... More

We stayed in this hostel for three nights recently in a private double room (good size), and it was an absolute delight - the reception staff were incredibly helpful and friendly (an asset to the hostel), and the place itself never seemed too busy, actually quite quiet, homely & full of history (in a good way). Location is good -... More

Beautiful old style hostel. We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. Great big rooms which we had to ourselves and really excellent wifi which was available throughout the Hostel. There were 2 minor negatives regarding the showers which weren't great and the kitchen being slightly messy but that was more so as a result of other guests... More

The building is beautiful. The staff at the counter was very friendly and welcoming. The room was cosy and clean. Location is great, quiet place walking distance to the CBD. The only thing that bothered us was that the kitchen was really dirty. That was the first thing we noticed. It is also upto the people staying to clean it... More

Initially I was drawn to this place because of it's beautiful exterior, however after staying a couple nights here I was so glad I chose the arthouse to stay at. The staff is friendly and helpful and very welcoming to their guests! Needless to say I will definitely be recommending the Arthouse to my friends and family!

The guys at reception were super friendly and accommodating! But the fact that they were both wearing beanies and coats inside was a sign that we were going to freeze at bedtime! When we mentioned this in a joking manner one of the guys offered us an extra blanket each and also (because it wasn't a busy night) brought in... More

Going to Launceston you will soon find out that there are not many reasonable accomodation options. You should definitely go to the Arthouse Hotel. It offers nice and clean rooms with a different number of beds in them, a big kitchen with a lot of equipment, a nice common room and very friendly and helpful staff. I totally recommend it... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend and we loved it! The rooms were super clean and the bathrooms and showers were great. The staff was so nice and helpful and theres plenty of parking outside. There is a huge kitchen and eating area and lots of cool people in the hostel. I would absolutely stay here again.

But our room was very loud, and it was not really easy walking distance to any place to eat. We ended up walking about 30 minutes each way, which wasn't too bad, but we had hiked quite a bit that day and were starting the Overland Track the next day so didn't really need any extra exercise. Also was a... More
