I enjoyed my stay at the hostel for two nights. It's got an old-fashioned feel about it, wooden floors in the common areas and all wooden sort of vintage furniture. Spacious rooms with high ceilings. Launceston itself is pretty small, and it's in a good location. Just a very short walk from the library/bus station in the city and only a few minutes from the city park.
I arrived late, so the staff left out a little packet with my key, a map, and bedsheets, and they'd given me the code to get into the hostel ahead of time. There seem to be a lot of bathrooms scattered around the hostel as well, including some private showers, and there's a little outdoor area in the back to hang out. I'd stay here again!
