Good location, friendly helpful staff and good kitchen facilities. But the dorms have no storage which makes rooms crowded. And the rooms aren't very clean (probably related to having everyone's gear strewn around). Also no lockers to secure valuables and only one light per room. Final gripe is having intolerant long term travelers staying in dorms - if they can't deal with room mates, they should get a job and a share house!

Pretty basic place, but I would stay again. It's cheap, relatively clean - it will do for Launceston.

Thanks for taking the time to review and comment, and we would love you to stay again. I will take the clean compliment myself this time because housekeeping was sick last weekend and I had to do the job myself! Again I learned respect for the work they do, and I am happy to hear that I did a reasonable job! :-)

Thanks so much for you comments. We pride ourselves on our friendly & knowledgeable staff and it's always great to hear feedback. You're absolutely right: we are an easy walk to everything & the view across the river to the city is just a bonus :)

I really enjoyed staying at Arthouse. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The building also has a nice charm that you don't usually get at a typical hostel. For anyone coming to Launceston I would highly recommend staying there.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments and high ratings. The Arthouse was built in 1888 and we have tried to keep as much as we can feeling comfortable and classic - except for the bathrooms which are modern! We are glad you liked it.

Pete (the receptionist) was an amazing help. We had a loose itinerary for things to do around Launceston but he really helped provide us with a realistic itinerary/ the best places to see not only around Launceston but around Tasmania. He would be the reason why i stay there again. The free WiFi was also awesome too. The only negative was that the heater in the room did not do much. It often got really cold at night.

Wow, thank you so much. It is a real pleasure for me (Pete!) to help with itineraries. I travel around Tasmania as much as I can and I get a real kick out of sharing experiences and stories with people like yourselves. Thanks for the comments great ratings - and I have heard you with the heater and placed a 2nd heater in both Room 13 (yours) and 16 (lots of windows there too). They should be toasty now.
