    It was all fantastic unfortunately by the time we were leaving there was a huge bush fire meaning that all the walks were shut so we finished our trip a day early as there wasn’t anything left to do as it was all shut from the fire.

    Just had a great time, everyone I met there - staff and other guests - were all so lovely. Great kitchen, free laundry, spacy common area, impressive cinema room. And amazing placement to explore the mountains. After 6 days I didn't wanna leave. Ask about the Bygone Beauties Tea Room if you're a fan of scones if you need a rainy day activity ... rr just an excuse to eat scones...

    Really good hostel, lots of space to hang out, a really good kitchen and the staff were so so helpful in planning our 2 days in the Blue Mountains. Only thing was the beds were quite rickety and uncomfortable but other than that, great stay

    There are a lot of facilities and things to do in this hostel such as Guitar/pool/table tennis/ board game/Thearter room/Table ball game etc.. but because this hostel is so hugh then it make me feel a bit empty. Anyway, it is so clam and peaceful. it is good for relaxing after hiking whole day. The location is perfect. close to the train station / supermarket / Hop in - off stop. Toilet and common areas are sparkling. at first I want to stay a night but end up extend 4 more nights.

    Nice hostel! Clean and got to sleep very well. Not so much action, but I was there just to hike so thats alright. Came before the check-in time to leave my bags there and asked for a map. The stufflady gave me a map but didn't explain anything at all!!! No words, just a map. That was pretty weird. When I came back to check in there was another lady who was very nice and told me everything I needed! Wish she could have been there right when I came.

    Just 0 atmosphere & everything seems dead awkward. Stayed in a 6 room hostel for 3 days & I was on my own which kind of sucks. Huge walk to the bathrooms.
