“GREAT PLACE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2011

I stayed here for the second time,very much welcomed back.Both Stephan and Andrea are absolutely lovely people,that will do their utmost to help with any request or info.They are people that actually care!!which is great for todays lack of customer service.The kitchen and lounge are very clean and a nice place to hang out,the lounge window has the afternoon sun streaming in,even if its a bit of a cool day.The kitchen is clean and organised,compared to another backpackers i stayed in.The building has a very nice old classy character,without looking rundown.Very convenient location,overlooking a magnificent massive church,and an awesome park a few minutes away.I felt confident and safe returning there again,being a woman travelling alone.

Room Tip: If you don,t like bunks request so,but good if you going cheap

I stayed one night for a short trip in Launceston. The hostel is clean and it is located near the city park. The staffs in there are friendly. The owner can speak many languages. There is a smart dog.
It is lovely.

We stayed only for one night in the Batman Fawkner Inn and it was very good.
Stephan was very helpfull and friendly and the room was very clean.
He showed us where to go and what to see in Launceston.
We enjoyed our stay.

I stayed in one of the double hotel rooms. This is one of those places that you stay at because you don't want to fork out money to stay someplace more luxurious. The place is a little dated, but not enough to be a concern.

When you stay here you are basically getting a bed, shower, toilet, a towel (no facewasher) and soap (no shampoo). The were friendly. If this is all you want, then I would recommend this place.

The Batman Fawkner Inn was like a home away from home during my travels through Tasmania. Stephan was the best! He was so helpful with anything and everything you needed. And whoever wrote that not happy review, I don't know where you were staying because I had the cleaning staff come everyday asking to service my room. And the front desk staff was so helpful, I can't imagine them ever being rude. The rooms are ok (a bit outdated but its budget accommodations, what do you expect?), the kitchen was great (always clean and has a nice big window to look out on the town while cooking). This is definitely a quieter, more family-friendly hostel which I liked but might not be for everyone (this isn't one of those party all night places). Lockers are provided for free and there's even free wi-fi! Not many hostels offer that. I would definitely recommend the Batman Fawkner Inn to anyone looking for a great place to stay!! There's even a dog =)

We stayed there for a week and after four days we asked for the room to be serviced only to be told by the owner (old lady) it was not a 5 star motel and that was next door!!!!! (Not what I wanted to hear) we really only wanted toilet paper and clean towels. 2 star accommodation charging too much.

Stefan, (works there) he was fantastic.

Only needed a place to "rough it" for a couple of days and the bunk room certainly obliged. Had to ask for my sheets three times before obtaining them. There was an issue over the booking as my son was young enough to stay for free but the booking site didn't work correctly so the manager wanted to see some proof of age - wasn't really his problem but he wasn't pleasant about it. Staff didn't know much about the attractions so were limited in providing help. The room probably had the best shower that we experienced travelling around Tasmania and this was far and away the cheapest place that we stayed in. Bathroom floor becomes dangerously slippery when wet - be careful. No heater in the room so rug up - even in spring. Kitchen facilties and meal area were fine. We weren't expecting too much and it was delivered.

Room Tip: Real budget travellers can choose the bunk rooms or I'd pay the extra to have a family room.
