Well-equipped with a large industrial kitchen and bathroom facilities are fairly well maintained on each floor of the old colonial style building. The Wifi is excellent and we stayed for three days without any issues. The building is large enough that even when it seems...More

Wow, what a comprehensive review. Thanks for sharing your experience of the Arthouse. Just so everyone knows - the WiFi is FREE and unlimited, and there is also FREE tea & coffee in the kitchen. ALL rooms have windows that can be opened for airflow,...More

It was a friendly place but probably could do with slightly larger kitchen and common areas. Given a lot of people doing the Overland Track stay here before starting, it would be good to set up something informal so people doing this can meet each...More

Thanks for leaving a review. We would certainly like larger common areas, but they do seem to suffice even during summer. We have 2 lounge rooms, 1 dining room and 1 courtyard. We absolutely do encourage people to meet up and share experiences or combine...More

Thanks for a great review and huge compliments. We do not use the fireplaces because of the obvious dangers. But we do have heaters is the common rooms and in ALL the rooms.

This is the worst hostel I ever stayed it! It's a big hostel with approx. 120 beds in a once beautiful old building. The hostel seems to be on the market for sale for a long time but asking price keeps it from being sold...More
