    The hostel is in a great location with a lovely view of the city and the hills. The building is full of character and the staff are super friendly. The atmosphere was nice too. Our rooms were clean and had heaters, sheets and a quilt cover. The price was great and we would definitely say here again.

    The staff at Arthouse are so lovely and super helpful. The hostel is in such a cool building and is so close to the city center. Very good value for money and I would definitely stay here again.

    Loved the old building as it has character. No it doesn’t need a make over as other reviewers have mentioned. It is definitely vintage style. I loved the fact I booked a dorm and got upgraded to a private double. Loved my stay here in Launie!

    Pete was lovely! Helped us plan our trip. There seemed to be a lot happening in the night but we had an early one to be up early. Rooms were warm. Walk to town was pleasant and not too long.

    Good for a short stay The place was quiet but sometimes people were a little but noisy at night but it was okay for me but it will be definitely bad for some people who are sensitive with noise.

    I do not recommend staying here. The entire place was old and filthy. The common areas and bathrooms were disgusting. Walking distance to a few good places but that is the only positive thing to stay.

    Booked a room here at 7 pm, a ride to Hobart fell through and I was stranded. I received two booking confirmation emails, so got a taxi to the hostel, and found it inaccessible. I called to figure out how to access my booking, and the operator was rude, patronising and unaccountable. He offered no apology or empathy for my situation, and refused to acknowledge that I had made a booking and received proper confirmation. Slept on a bus stop. I understand it wasn’t staffed, but come on man.

    Terribly run down. Felt like a Squat rather than a Hostel. Dirty. Peeling paint. Large chunks of plaster missing. The building is pretty much inhabitable.
