I flew in and unfortunately this was the only place in town that could offer me a room. Its almost as if someone bought an old prison and decided to turn it into a hotel... - Your bedding is given to you at the front desk... so you get to see the lovely stained mattress in your room when you...

Dear Mitch R, Unfortunately your recent stay in our backpacker accommodation didn't meet your expectations. 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. The backpacker wing was built in the early... More

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.
