Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

With free WiFi, free tea & coffee, free sunscreen and in the Heart of the Arts district, the Arthouse Hostel is clean, comfortable and friendly, and within walking distance from anywhere in Launceston.

We are newly renovated in one of the oldest buildings in Launceston. The heritage listed 1888 building has been a riverfront hotel and a parsonage, and has now had an overhaul.

With new bathrooms and beds, a state-of-the-art fire alarm and sprinkler system, a herb garden, 2 lounges, kitchen, courtyard with free BBQ, balconies, and an old bell tower, we are ready to welcome you!
