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.

Staying here in the middle of winter meant I got a whole bunkroom to myself which was nice, and it also meant I had a very quiet night.

Positives:
Friendly staff
Old-style building, looks inviting from the outside
Comfortable mattress
Was provided with a top & bottom sheet (unlike other hostels)
Clean and new-looking bathrooms and there seems to be quite a few shower/toilets dotted around the building
Didn't insist on collecting a key deposit as I was leaving early in the morning

Negatives:
Was freezing cold all night as the quilt provided was very thin and the heater in the room was insufficient
the middle of winter

Good sized room. Old cast iron bed. Old wood frame window making noise all night with the wind. Quite nice toilets - looking clean. Not the same about the kitchen that was plain dirty. I am glad I didn't have to cook there.

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!
