I love coming back to the Batman Fawkner. It's always a welcoming place to stay! Centrally located to everything in the Launceston CBD, lovely friendly staff. Very comfortable rooms with everything you need. I'll continue to stay at the Batman Fawkner when I visit Launceston

The location was great, a short walk to restaurants and pubs. The common room/kitchen looked newly renovated with vending machines and... More

Being one of the only backpackers in Tasmania able to offer en suites in all rooms, as well linen and WIFI without a rental fee, we are disappointed to hear that we did not satisfy your needs.

If you want a place where you can sleep, avoid this place. There is a nightclub nearby and that will keep you awake. When the music finishes you will then have the drunk patrons making a racket afterwards. When you finally do get some sleep you will then have the garbage truck early in the morning collecting the empty bottles.... More

Wife and I stayed here on a short trip to Launceston, a very reasonably priced centrally located place to stay, only drawback is quite noisy due to close by night club but we managed to sleep ok, probably wouldn't recommend for very light sleepers although earplugs are offered
