I had high hopes for this hostel but was pretty disappointed. The whole joint smelled like feet and went from pleasantly warm to frigid in a matter of minutes every evening. The walls were thinner than paper and (while I wouldn't rank this as a "party hostel") it seemed like noises from all ends of the outdated house were echoing... More

I love how spacious the kitchen is, with plenty of utensils to accommodate everyone. The newly renovated girls' shower room is also spacious and clean...it felt too good to be true for a backpackers hostel. The spaciousness also extends to the rooms: A fair amount of walking space, compared to many backpackers that try to cramp as many bunks into... More

This hostel is one of my favourites! I arrived without notice and they were happy to accommodate me. The staff are so lovely and helpful! I stayed here once before and they let me nap on the sofa until my room was ready, and this time they gave me perfect recommendations for my day out. The hostel is clean and... More

The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about local surrounds and tourist attractions. Just a short 5 minute walk to the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, and 15 minutes to the main shopping district; this hostel is in an easily accessible location without the need for public transport. The kitchen is large with a great range of cookery. One problem... More

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.

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👍👍
