The building looks lovely from the outside as it has been renovated. It's in a great position and Emma at reception was friendly and very helpful. Good large kitchen downstairs. Unfortunately that was all the good news. The room was old and smelly. There was limited parking for the hotel so if you didn't get a car space you had... More

It's on Cameron st, Launceston. Hostel has nice and friendly staff, they're very helpful too. I rent a two bed room. The room a little bit too small as the bunk bed seems taking all of space. But it has ensuite, toilet, big shower and basin. The bunk bed is so squeaky as well, which made noise when a person... More

Had a very comfortable stay here for a very affordable price! Room was clean and spacious. Clean sheets and TV and informative brochures about Launceston. Very happy to have stayed here as we were doing a long drive the next morning and had a good rest.

Beautiful heritage facade and easy to locate on Cameron Street but watch the one-way streets in the area. Limited parking at the front for taxis etc - some private car parking at the back. Quite a distance from a major supermarket for those self-catering but worth the longish walk. Lots of eateries around. Rooms were clean, comfortable and adequate size... More

We had a night here before walking the Overland Track. It's cheap, clean, neat, tidy, & a good communal kitchen. It's an old building but very well kept. Very well located in the city, close to the main shops. A beautiful park down the road. Restaurants and cafes close by.

If you are looking for a place to stay with minimum budget, here it is. Staff is not especially friendly. The room is tiny but clean. Accessible to the main streets in Launceston. Don't expect too much then you won't be disappointed.

Great service and the location is very accessible and convenient for visiting nearby tourist attractions. The club below does produce some noise during the night and the beds aren't the most comfortable. The door of the bathroom was not so practical as it is a sliding door that leaves a gap on either side of it. There is also a... More

This is a back packers hotel. All have ensuites,tv's and are very clean and welcoming. We had a front room with a large circular window- bottom cut off - and we had a view of an old church up close. A block to the inner city, tourist attractions, etc. So good. We are in our 70's.
