    I think it’s a terrific find. I booked the family room with private facilities and I would say it was better than most of the local motels in the area with an excellent location and plenty of street parking. It’s very clean, comfortable and spacious.

    Hostel dorms and bathrooms are large and you can fit all your stuff in the locker provided. Kitchen is also big and well equipped (has ovens)! Communal space has comfy sofas and a tv. Visited in July so was relatively quiet but relaxed and friendly. Hostel staff helpful and give good advice about walks in local area! Would definitely come back!

    This was a perfect place for my short stay in the Blue Mountains. Atmosphere was great, staff was friendly and it was a cozy place to stay at after a day of hiking. It was also very clean and it was quiet in the room during the night even though it was almost full. It is also in a perfect location not far from the Katoomba train station. I recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Blue Mountains!

    Great location being so close to the train station, and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Lovely warm recreation room downstairs with roaring fire. Would have been nice for the vending machines to stock more chocolate and less chips (!) Kitchen was enormous and clean. Lots of fridge space. Yes will stay again.
