Lovely location and easy to find your way around. Only downside with experiencing fleas in our room. The staff were more than helpful with moving us to a new room and working to sort the issue. This hostel was perfect for our brief stay in the blue mountains. Not a very friendly atmosphere with fellow travellers, however most were older than us and seemed to be there long term. Overall rating, very good :)

Overall a really good stay here. Quite old fashioned decor but doesn't matter as it's clean. We had a private room which was nice but was very far away from a toilet which was annoying in the middle of the night! Nice atmosphere especially in the common room area, very helpful and friendly staff and good kitchen facilities. overall a pleasant stay and would stay again.

Pros Great location, half hour walk from echo point and three sisters (steep) and close to train station. Common room good. Large full size lockers. Laundry on site free (charge for detergent) and good sized kitchen. Cons Loud train runs past through the night so be aware of this. Loud guests especially at weekend, damp rooms and damp smell, make you pay $5 to hold luggage when you check out unless you write a good review and show them! ) No room mirrors and few showers.

Great location, right by the train station, and not much of a walk down to eco point or the scenic walk way, as long as you're here for walking. The wifi is very slow, and the free computers take a very long time to load everything. But over all it's a value hostel, has lockers, comfy beds, and free washing facilities, nice little stay for a couple of days on a budget

Would stay there again , but it's a little bit far away from Three Sisters and Scenic World but of you have a car that should be no problem.

great location in katoomba rite near the train station. Staff all seemed a bit new and not extremely knowledgable, but were very friendly and accommodating where they could. it has a nice lunge with pool and foosball tables. But seemed a bit strict on the rules. all in all a good spot for accessing the mountains. Blue Mountains rule!

It was a nice place. Clean and conveniently located, but the noise from the trains passing by across the street woke me up a few times during the night. Water not hot enough in the shower, and kept changing from cold to semi hot.
