Seriously excellent hostel located in beautiful Katoomba...great base to explore the peaks, plus it feels like a home away from home, with very friendly staff, common room to meet fellow travellers, and comfortable rooms. I highly recommend

The Flying Fox was a fun, relaxed and friendly place to stay. It was easy to meet other travellers and the free breakfast was awesome! Lots of cereal, good bread and tea and coffee. Highly recommended.

Great staff, Ross makes sure you feel right at home! Really chilled out vibe only negative was one couple decided to chill out too much in the 8 bed dormer and made it a bit awkward for everyone else. Would spend the extra money next time to stay in a more private room.

We only stayed for a night due to time restrictions but had a really great stay. Some good tips provided on walks around the Blue Mountains. If you're looking for a good backpackers experience this is the place to stay.

I had a great time a the Fling Fox, staf is really super friendly and also met alot of nice people there. ItIt has a really nice atmosfeer!! The weardest thing was we where theres sundelly witth 5 people from Belgium. It's very clean out there, kitchen is nice and you can relax a nice place inside or outside with a beer or some goon in your hand and chat around. .

A special hostel that came highly recommended to me 100s of KMs away. No phone/laptop allowed in common spaces means real conversations by the fire and a certain type of travelers. Kitchen well stocked, beds comfortable, squeaky clean, lovely staff. Was so sad to go!

The staff are trying their best to make you feel comfortable and welcome. Everyone is nice to each other, travelers that just wanna share their stories and adventures. 5 min walk from the train station, a big cheap vege shop next door, 3 sisters viewpoint about 30 min walk. The hostel got a good breakfast and WiFi, very pleasant balcony and garden, big dormitories. The only downside is just I had to get back to Sydney and couldn't stay longe. next time!

One of the best hostels I've stayed at! Chill vibe and friendly people - overall great atmosphere! Social hour from 6-9pm helps travellers stay social and the free breakfast in the morning is a plus too. Everyone is really helpful in giving recommendations or tips for activities in the area. Also, front and back doors have a number lock and rooms have small lockers. Would stay here again!
