“"Great place to stay and friendly staff, perfect place to discover the blue mountains from"”
Reviewed 16 May 2012

Mandy, thank you so much for the use of your hostel. Clean, close to town centre, and a real personal feel to the whole place. We stayed for 2 nights in May 2012 and had such a great time we wished we were staying longer.
In the lounge/ dining room there are a whole range of books on walks and maps of the Blue Mountain area.
Everyone we met at No.14 was in a good, relaxed mood and that is because of the feel of the place. A real home from home.Breakfast is included, as is internet and a great "book swap" book case.
From the minute we arrived Mandy was really helpful on information for walks, places to eat, transport, or anything else that you need to know for a trip to the Blue Mountains, you could really just turn up without any preparation and she will show you the way.
Have already recommended "No 14" to others, and will return one day for sure .

Friendly, clean and well maintained hostel. Short pleasant walk to main st and station. Ideal for big family when hotels don't suit.

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.
