    Host was amazing, facilities were very cheap and the downstairs lobby and dining hall were very active with other guests. Only complaint is the wifi was a bit hit or miss but this place is the perfect hostel for Launceston - great location for a great price.

    This backpackers has everything you need for the right price. Big kitchen. Parking lot. Laundry facilities and comfy enough bed. Having said this, I do think it has the potential to be even better. More hooks in bedrooms, caddie shelves in showers, upgraded couches in common space (as theirs have all worn down... springs seem broken). Maybe flowers or something to brighten the space! Not sure. Things that aren’t necessary but could give this place a better vibe. Overall it’s fine!

    Comfortable, clean and friendly. However, my on-line reservation, 4 weeks prior to arrival did not make it to the daily manual login register.

    For some reason, I had somewhat low expectations for this hostel but it actually was my favorite one of the trip. It was spacious and peaceful. Big kitchen. The 6-bed female room was very spacious and nice.

    + Good location, very close to supermarkets and only a few minutes walk to the centre. Friendly staff & cute dog! - Security could be better as anyone can walk in.
