Arthouse is a lovely old weatherboard hostel on the banks of the main river flowing through Launceston. It has a lot of character and the guests are a combination of traditional backpackers, holiday makers and some that look like regulars. It is a very friendly, relaxed place and the bathrooms are cleaned daily and it likes the toilets are cleaned twice daily. The location is a short walk into the main center but Launceston is rather small so everything is a short walk to everywhere else. The staff come in each morning and leave around 8 at night but given there was no staff during the night I thought it was quiet and I felt very safe.
The kitchen is large and although not full of modern equipment it is practical and clean.
Really enjoyed my stay and would come back.
