    Comfortable beds but you do need to pay extra for top sheets and they only provide blankets, no quilts. Which I found strange for a place that gets quite cold. The rooms do have heating and are quite spacious. There is a piano in the dining room and was lovely hearing people playing it through the afternoon.

    Convenient, clean and great kitchen and living areas. Turning the heater on in the room was a bit of a climb as its on the ceiling and could possible be a safety hazard if you have to climb like I did, otherwise, value for money for sure and great location.

    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 stayed at Launceston Backpackers for a weekend trip to Tassie. The main reason I stayed at this hostel was for the location and it did not disappoint. It was a short walk to points of interest in the city and to The Gorge. The facility was very clean and comfortable. I stayed in a private room and it was suitable for my needs. The hostel was quiet, relaxed and everyone gave a friendly greeting. The room and facilities were clean. The temperature was comfortable given how could it was outside.

    This is a normal, average hostel. The place was nice, big, open and clean but there was no real atmosphere. Unfortunately the staff member was also quite cold and unfriendly. A good place to stay for a few days but not longer.

    I stayed for one night before catching an early flight the next day, glad it was only one night. You get what you pay for, found the beds hard, the rooms cold and they only provide old blankets that aren’t warm. Clean building, a bit outdated but great location and plenty of parking on the street if you miss out on a spot in their parking lot.

    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 !

    Kitchen was filthy, there were many large Asian families cooking fish. Staff didn’t give any ideas for what to do in Launceston. Room was clean.
