“Great stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

We stayed at Number 14 last year for 2 nights in October and it was a lovely stay. The hosts are really helpful. There is a free internet computer, a great kitchen, laundry options and much more. If you are looking for something a rather quiet and cosy, Number 14 is the place to stay! If the sun comes out, the balcony is a great place to enjoy a morning coffee or so as well.
I would definitely go there again and can recommend this place for its friendliness, cleanliness, atmosphere and the location is also pretty good.

Everyone I met at this hostel was friendly - staff and backpackers alike. The hostel was clean, the kitchen and bathroom facilities were good. The atmosphere was lovely, warm, cosy, and the rooms had good light and lovely personality to them. It was one of the two nicest/my favourite hostels on this trip around and about Australia. Thank you!

Room Tip: We stayed in two different rooms (both upstairs) and they were both fantastic.

We had a nice stay here in a double room upstairs. I would pay extra for the ensuite next time (they only have one so you have to book way in advance). The kitchen and bathrooms were very clean. Staff were friendly also. Although it was a backpackers it felt more like a no frills b&b!

Room Tip: Upstair rooms were quiet. May have to ring ahead and work out check-in arrangements.

We stayed in double which was big and warm unfortunately is was close to the common area so we could hear every word being said. The kitchen is very well equipped and the free cereal breakfast is nice touch. The bathrooms have space heaters which is nice after a wet day in theblue mountains. Very comfy common room without tv. They have a computer to use internet for free, no wi-fi.

Room Tip: Get a room far away frm the common room

Stayed here for 1 night in April 2010. When we got there, there was no manager, just a board where we could write our name and choose a free room. There is a free PC to use with internet, nice kitchen and sitting area. The hostel was fairly quite that day which suited us. The manager was nice and helpful in recommending places to see in the Blue Mountains and hikes to do.
Everything was clean and the beds very comfy.
