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

We are a young couple, I want to underline this. But there's a limit for everything! Live music till 2 am, in an empty and sad city where we only want to sleep! An hotel can't have any room in such position.

Was advised about the nightclub after paying and told was in a quiet room- quiet if you're deaf and don't feel anything! Too much to expect to be able to sleep when staying away i guess The... More

Stayed here with a few lads and stayed in the bunk rooms. The price is very good at $20 a head a night. The rooms are small and basic but with a price tag of $20 a night it is good value. It has a great location and everything is in walking distance.
