Value for money. The two person room comes with attached bath and you are staying the price of staying in dormitory. Other hostels in Launceston are charging more but you have to share the room with more people.

Room was far too noisy. We were not informed about the nightclub next door until we arrived. Clearly that level of noise will be an issue for some people. While it is apparently mentioned on the booking sight, I did not see it and think it needs to be a lot clearer. One would not assume a nightclub is right...

Dear mflemi_475390, All guests are informed of the nightclub prior to arrival as it is on all of the booking agencies that we use, as well as our website. For example, on Booking.com this is included in the important information underneath payment options and room facilities. It is the responsibility of those booking their accommodation to ensure they have read...

If you plan to sleep in Launceston for a night or two it is the best option: not expensive but very clean and confortable rooms and bathrooms, free parking and well located in the city centre of Launceston. It was a great way to start our holidays on Tasmania!

found room was very clean and tidy. We only wanted somewhere to stay the night so we went for a cheaper priced hotel. If you don't mind a bit of noise then this place is perfect for cheap accomodation

HORRIBLE stay. "Minor disturbance" they said... The nearby nightclub was actually UNDER the room. It was like we were on stage. The doors were vibrating and I do not mention the good 80-90 decibels that we were "enjoying". Then the noisy patrons debrief the night under your window. Some were staying at the same place: what's more funny than turning...

Dear Sebastien B, Unfortunately during your stay there was a fire alarm that went off, at no fault to the hotel. Please do not assume that another guest set off this fire alarm purposefully for their enjoyment. Should anyone set off a fire alarm they are dealt with accordingly. In regards to the nightclub, all guests are informed at their...

We only stayed for one night and would not bother to stay here next time. If you're the couple of friends, it's better to take family room. This accomodation looks like a hotel with lower budget even it's more expensive but it's worthy to spend your night here.

Dear Desri, Thank you for your recent stay. We're disappointed to hear that you won't be staying again, though we think you have confused our hotel and backpacker accommodation. Our backpacker dormitories are $25.00 per person, per night for a two bed dorm, and include 400mb of free WiFi per person, linen, and own ensuite, as well as access to...
