    Was on a boys weekend trip, didn’t wanna pay a whole lot for accomodation, whilst normally you get what you pay for I thought this was amazing for the price we paid. Also the people also staying were amazing made friends with so many of them. Will happily come and stay again.

    Great hostel for the price! Very spacious dorms, living rooms and kitchens. Staff have quite limited hours and dorms could do with some lockers, but apart from that this is a really good place.

    A great place to stay with good kitchen facilities. Value for money for sure. The only thing is there are no lockers like other hostels I've stayed in which did cause a little anxiety for me. The blankets were a little scratchy but I didn't expect anything luxurious. Probably will come back.

    I stopped on my way to undertaking the Overland track and found it well placed to meet my needs. They arranged a late check in and have been friendly and helpful. Launceston is a lovely place to stay and explore!

    I felt that having limited hours of operation (staff) impacted on our overall experience.

    Hello! We had a bit of an interesting stay in Launceston Backpackers. I can imagine before covid the place was bustling ! However covid times has left it empty and a tad cold. The piano in the dining room was an excellent touch - more people should have a play to fill the space !

    Conveniently located and reception was friendly and helpful. The storage and facilities are lacking though for the number of people accommodated. One small toaster, one kettle, three knives, not enough forks which made it difficult to prepare meals at the same time as others. Pots and pans were broken. There is no place to store bags or hang clothes in the rooms. The dining and lounge rooms are large with a piano for people to play. Free town buses are easy to access for sightseeing.
