Really good atmosphere, friendly staff, comfortable beds, free biscuits handed out at night, lovely fire outside at night if you felt like sitting around a hot fire, free breakfast and wifi. I liked the art work and the comfy couches. Only downside was loud trains going by every hour at nighttime, but the second night I got earplugs so that solved that issue.

Cozy hostel with lots of longtimers. Good atmosphere, would stay there again. Minor point: Lack of bathrooms in comparison to number of people can be a problem.

Great place! A real old-school hostel with a great community feel. Great place to meet people and great base for walking in the Blue Mountains, as the owner can give you any advise you want.

Really cozy hostel with friendly people. Only spent one night at the hostel but i definitely would've stayed there longer if i had time. Very social hostel with activities planned sometimes and a no phone rule in the common area in order to talk to others and make friends. Really cool!

One of the best hostels I have stayed at in Australia. More like a cozy guest house than typical busy hostel. The owner Ross is really helpful and friendly and lots of atmosphere. Pesto night was really yummy and a family style diner was a good way to get to know other guests.
