    Solid place with a nice big common area, and staff are really helpful. We locked ourselves out of our car (because we’re idiots) and the staff dropped what they were doing to come help us, great folks!

    This hostel has been my favourite! Everything was so clean! They constantly have cleaners working. They provide so much for the amount that we payed! I loved that the common room was open and inviting. The staff encouraged meeting more people and often would rally groups together to play ping pong or pool. The kitchen had everything that you could need, including ovens and a microwave!! If going back to Katoomba this would be the only hostel I would stay at

    A great hostel experience for my short stay in the Blue Mountains! The staff, Stacie & Wendy, were extremely friendly & accommodating! They provided me w a towel & washing powder free of charge & even let me check out an hour late as I waited for my laundry to finish drying - fantastic service! This hostel is very affordable & located just a few minutes walk from the Katoomba train station. It's very large with plenty of bathrooms. Only negatives - no window screens and flies in the kitchen

    One of the staff here is extremely rude. The provided cover sheets didn't fit my bed. I explained it to her, and she said that they were all the same, and spoke to me with an attitude, as if I were stupid. I then asked for a new sheet. She stomped away and came back with a sheet. I'm not even sure if it's new. It fit. From my past few stays here, she's been incredibly unwelcoming. A lot of people have had the same experience. I would suggest paying a little bit extra and go to firefox next door.

    It was ok for a few nights, building was a little older but they keep it clean. Not too far of a walk to the grocery store and main street but a little farther to walk to attractions. Not many charging stations for phones in the room though and bunk beds were pushed pretty close together at the sides. Wasn't a very lively atmosphere but could've just been the scene when we were there or more long term bed rental people staying there. Quiet at night.
