Been a hosteller all my life - I love the atmosphere and the company - BUT - here I found many things 'wrong' for example: In the room the window would not open - no sashes - so no fresh air at night - hot and stuffy, no sleep! Dishes pots and pans left piled high in sink by backpackers... More

This is my second visit at the Arthouse and I just love this hostel. Pete and the Arthouse team are really good and helpful to tourists and they are prompt in replies (when we got stuck in Bicheno as there were no buses, we communicated thru emails about our cancellations) The hostel is good in the location, clean toilets and...

Location is quite central to the city and any attractions or landmarks (Aurora Stadium - just across the road) Staff was friendly and helpful - The night we stayed was good as the 6 of us had one dorm room so no weird strangers, as we were up early for out Overland Trek. Overall it was clean and bathroom facilities... More

Location is great and relative to city/shops . The inside of the hostel is cozy and comfortable. It has everything you need, plus bonuses such as nice DVD collection, coffee machine, balcony etc. The best part of the experience was meeting the owner/host he helped us plan our entire trip and was very knowledgable about the entirety of Tasmania. All... More

Lovely hospitality made to feel welcome. they went out of their way for to help us with locations in Launceston and attractions. Good hot showers clean bed not much more you need the that. The only thing I would complain about is the carpet wasn't vacuumed. I would recommend and I would go again!! Thanks Daniel & Lisa👍👍

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
