    Booked a private room, simple but all that I needed. Staff were great, allowed me to park my motorbike off the street behind locked gates.

    Brilliant place to stay as long as you aren’t a clean freak. Everything is dirty in the kitchen and bathrooms. Didn’t mind this for a couple of nights, but can’t be too worried about it

    Excellent location near the centre of Launceston. Staff were very helpful with any queries we had. Bathroom and kitchen facilities were adequate but a bit old/outdated.

    Does the job, nothing flashy, seemed pretty full of people there for a month or so at a time. That being said, people were pretty friendly and there aren't many other options in Launceston!

    I was not a fan of this hostel. Mostely because my bed was the worst I've had. I could feel so many springs. Also there a balcony connecting a bunch of rooms, so if someone wanted to, they could walk in. They also said the balcony closes at 9 pm, but reception closes at 6 so no one enforces it. So people were loud outside my room until 11 pm or so.

    Only positive was that the reception staff were friendly and helpful. Apart from that the place was always dirty (even after their cleaning). Balcony is meant to be closed at 9pm but people were still out there till later talking/ music playing/ smoking. Rooms that led out onto the balcony anyone could just walk into. Far too much money for what it is.

    The night that we reached the hostel, it was so noisy that we could hardly sleep. We were in the room right opposite the back yard where people were partying till 3am. There was no light bulb in the room the first night and we had to make do with our phone flash lights. I got the light bulb replaced the next day which the lady on the front desk was happy to change for me. The kitchen was messy and dishes weren’t done if there wasn’t any staff, who would then do the dishes and keep them back
