Had a short two night stay on our way to hike the Overland Track. The room was much more then we expected and very well priced, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and the location close to shops , food and attractions. I would definitely would recommend a stay here and would stay again.

The hostel was good. Located in town, decent kitchen area. I was there on a Wednesday night but club was not a problem. I stayed in a two bed mixed dorm with a Russian girl. There was a double bed in the bottom and a single bunk on the top without railings. Was slightly concerned I was going to roll...

Dear Yetitours, Thank you for your stay and for taking the time to review your experience. We are pleased you enjoyed our complimentary communal facilities. As you mentioned you booked a two bed mixed dormitory. Whilst we do our best to place females with females and males with males we cannot always do so due to numbers. The girl that...

Stayed at the Batman Fawkner last week, not really a luxurious stay but it did its job well. Room was clean, no complaints. Good value and a convenient location. The staff were helpful but I should point out that parking is very limited.

Wonderful location right in the heart of Launceston, we love staying at the Batman Fawkner whenever we go there. Very friendly and engaging staff, both on the front desk and in housekeeping, who couldn't help us enough (thanks Benny and Donna)! Really good rooms, especially considering this is budget accommodation, and great value for money. A nice touch is the...

Stayed for one night and would not go back. They put us in a room directly above a busy pub with live music on and it was Friday night so we couldn't go to sleep until 2-3am when all the people had left from outside. It was like sleeping in the pub. The inn didn't seem busy so they probably...

Dear Julia, We are disappointed that you experienced the worst night sleep ever with us, however please allow us to clarify information regarding a few points that you have made. We have experienced full or near full occupancy throughout 2017 so far and for most of 2016. As such, whilst we would love to have rooms away from the music...

I was worse for drink as a client of BFI. I am 60 years old and do wine bus tours in Western Australia. Once in a while I need to use my life experience to keep a drunk customer on the side of the angels. It isnt rocket surgery. Probably the worst thing you can do is to bash your...

Dear Mark, You entered our building whilst a female member of staff was at reception and proceeded to lie on our seating and yell homophobic, racist and sexist abuse.

The nightclub down stairs didn't keep me up but the ridiculously uncomfortable mattress did. For 78 dollars and for one night this place is passable. Great location but the entire building and rooms are outdated. The photos are deceiving, it looks modern and refurbished but we were treated to 70's decor and damp on the roof. Wouldn't say stay away...
