My only complaint about the place was that the bedroom was a bit on the cold side. I had a single room with a double bed, and it would have been fine except that Tassie in the winter is a bit cold, even in Launceston, and a bit of a heater both in the bedroom and in the bath would have gone a long way towards making the place more comfortable. Other than that it was fine.

Lovely quiet backpackers in a beautiful old building, across from a park and walking distance to everything. Communal facilities are clean and well maintained. Friendly staff.

A mirror in room 6 would be nice. Kitchen facilities excellent, plenty of fridge space to store your food.

We arrived late and left early so didn't get to fully access the facilities on offer. Showers were private and hot. Would definitely stay again.
