This is a very nice hostel for this area. It really has that 'mountain feel'. Very welcoming people at the reception and a big lounge area. Next to it is a spacious clean kitchen. The rooms are also good but only our bathroom was a bit small and old-fashioned. Also ideal for families!

We stayed at this hotel as it was part of a tour package we had booked through YHA. It was clean and warm (it had been raining heavily for 2 days straight when we stayed) and the bathroom facilities were also clean. We didn't really chill out in the common areas as we were on a tour and abseiling and...

Nice place to stay Walking distance from town centre Comfy beds Nice bathroom Only complaint is definitely not sound proof. You can sneeze without everyone knowing Large windows and great curtains that block out all the light for afternoon naps

Big hostel, nice and big common area and wonderful big kitchen to cook! They have everything needed in the kitchen. Staff is helpful, dorms are clean and cosy when you choose for the 4 or 6 dorm. WiFi is not great but you can get for 5$ premium that works faster.

Once again back to the YHA. Lovely and warm. such a relaxed ambience. This time I become unwell. There was much care and concern by staff. The bug passed but it was good to know there was help on hand if required. We went for a walk to the reopened Grand Canyon. Such a quality track. We strated from Neates...

Right in the middle of Katoomba. Welcoming, old world hostel. Great kitchen facilities. The family room was good, and had all we needed. A very popular hostel so it can get crowded. Lots of exchanges about where to go in the Blue Mountains and what to do. Close to supermarkets.

Excellent value,very clean and comfortable beds.Noisy but there are large groups and many children running around,so this is to be expected but by 10pm most people were asleep.Very helpful staff on reception,also the kitchen had everything you needed. Would definitely stay here again as it's located in the town close to all the sights.

Stayed for three nights in June. The stay was just about perfect. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. It was very warm although it was cold outside. Wifi worked very well. I would highly recommend this hostel when in the Blue Mountains.
