The pull-out lockers under the beds is a good idea. Make sure all the dorm windows can be opened to provide fresh air.
I chose it for its nearness to the train & metro stations and stayed only one night. Can't say much except that the dorm and bathroom were very good. Would certainly stay again.
I stayed 6 days and am here again. The staff have been always friendly and helpful. I like the sociable atmosphere with guests of many backgrounds and ages, also the openness of the common areas and the extra services offered.
Very nice staff. If in Katoomba again I will stay there.
I would stay there again. The rooms are fairly large and the bunk beds are solid.
I arrived in the evening and left early next morning - not enough time to form a full evaluation. The room and the breakfast were wery well done.
The staff were helpful, nice to chat with and offered lots of tea. I like the top-floor common room: bright, open view of neighborhood, large TV, heater. The dorm room is large with mostly single beds. The rooms can be quite cold in mid-winter but extra blankets are provided.
