    Comfortable place to stay, if I was working in or near Launceston wouldn’t mind staying there long term. It’s a small city so easy to walk wherever you want to go from the hostel. Cute older architecture.

    Cheap, basic quality, but great for linking up with Launceston visiting key sites or going locally or to other cities via bus.

    Good spot just over the water. Didn’t actually meet any of the staff since I arrived and left outside of reception hours but they were very helpful over email. The building was old but the bathroom and rooms seemed clean. It was very chilly inside but the dorm rooms had space heaters which was really nice. Would stay again.

    Pros: Great staff, well equipped kitchen, nice easy walk across the bridge and away from the hustle and bustle of Launceston central. Cons: No lockers in rooms, very cold and only old school heaters in rooms and common areas which do nothing, shower water was like a trickle, no pressure at all.

    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.
