    Stayed at the Arthouse for 7 nights and really enjoyed my time there. The kitchen and bathroom facilities are great, it is within walking distance to the city centre, and there is parking available on the street. The pricing was extremely reasonable too, with a...More

    This is the only hostel in the area so if you are looking for cheap, this is it. The building is very old, not maintained and falling apart. All the furniture is very tattered and dirty, desperately needs to be replaced. The whole building is...More

    We are in a heritage building that needs and receives continued upkeep. That part is true, the rest an exaggeration. And during summer, particularly the end of summer, we sometimes fall behind. BUT, every room has heaters and if they are not enough we add...More

    Launceston's not a big city so despite being a little way out of the centre it's still an easy walk from the Arthouse to pretty well anywhere. (Shared) bathrooms are plentiful and clean and the room (at least, our room) was reasonably spacious. The building...More

    Thanks for the comments. We certainly are quite close to everywhere, easy walking distance to everything worth seeing. We are in a 130+ heritage listed building with lots of character and history. You are right - nothing is square! It is built on a flood...More

    Staff were friendly and the building has a lot of character. The public areas are big enough. Kitchen is dirty - walls with ground-in grease. They employ someone to come and clean the kitchen morning and late evening which encourages guests to be untidy. The...More

    Good hostel in ideal location by the river. Very cute place with friendly staff. Also very quiet for a good sleep. A little cold but had heaters in the rooms. Overall very clean and has a big kitchen. Would stay here again

    Thanks very much for the good rating and nice comments. We are considered a quiet hostel, but can't guarantee it of course. :-) The river boardwalk is awesome, and I walk that quite often all the way to the Cataract Gorge.

    I don't think so. I remember walking for ages on the deserted streets to get to the hostel from the city centre.
