    Really nice hostel, with helpful staff. You can get discounts on tickets for all the things to do in the blue mountains :) And I really loved the fireplace 😍

    Very nice hostel, I even extended my stay! The blue mountains are really beautiful and for me this hostel had sort of a mountain "cabin" vibe, especially with the fireplace! I would definitely stay there again. (The only downside was that there was a long(er) term resident in my dorm that snored really loudly, but otherwise everything was super!

    Our second stay here, is a awesome hostel if you want to check out the blue mountains. Has a very well equipped kitchen and plenty of communal space. The gentleman on reception is also very helpful. Would recommend visiting station bar if you're looking for a pub close by.

    Good hostel in the Blue Mountains. Very close to the train station. Not a very social place but I was mostly there for hiking.

    The hostel was nice only downside was being alone in a room with two (what looked like homeless) guys. Wouldn't have bothered me so much if other people would have been in the dorm but yeah...

    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.

    The good- This is a big property, with many rooms and probably one of the biggest kitchens. It is very close to the station. The bad- The room was dingy, the bed was extra small and most of the beds didn't even have a power socket. The room gets noisy in the night because of trains running beside. The staff doesn't let people sit in the common area after 11 PM and they're rude to you. They make no effort to make you feel at home. Would not recommend staying here because there's no good vibes.
