    Great little hostel just outside of Launceston. The house is a pretty old and there's a bit of a funny smell to it but the hostel had a real homey feeling to it and the staff were super friendly. Would definitely stay there again if I was in the area!

    Good hostel with good facilities including laundry, free tea and coffee and free parking. Offer dvds to watch, but could add some blankets. FOH was friendly. Kitchen slightly dirty because of other guests, bathroom was a bit grim too. No lockers in rooms. Comfy beds and sheets. Good location if you have a car or like to walk.

    Facilities including bathroom, kitchen and room’s were very dirty and not cleaned regularly as needed. Pillow and duvet cover not changed between guests. The hostel were not in a probate condition hosting guests under this circumstances and price.
