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

The staff here were great, helpful and chatty. The dorm rooms were spacious (I'd recommend those on the top floor, as well as using the bathrooms on the top floor!) The social areas are all spacious and this seems to be the hostel in Launceston where the majority of young people stay. When we visited (April 2014) there were lots... More

This hostel is a great place to stay in Launceston! The staff is super friendly and helpful. I stayed in a 8 share dorm room and it was quite big and clean. Beds are comfy and you can use your own sleeping bag. The bathrooms and the kitchen are very clean. The hostel often offers a free BBQ in the... More

I stayed at Arthouse on 4 different occasions for a night or two at a time. I found the front desk staff welcoming and the facilities more than adequate. One time I went, the internet was down, but it was Friday night, and I went out on the town with new friends from the hostel . It's in a quiet... More

The hostel was full of noisy and inconsiderate guests! The kitchen and dining hall were such a dirty mess and some male guests even played in the kitchen! My room was next to the wooden staircase. The noise from people running up and down was really annoying. The noise even started at 4.30am! The free wifi was down when I... More

Staff is unfriendly and the reception guy not very bright. ...internet doesn't work and kitchen and rooms were super dirty. If you don't have a sleeping bag you have to pay for one. Its not much but considering all other hostel don't charge you for one and heaters in the rooms don't really work. After telling all this to the... More
