    Excellent hostel in a great area. The place is very reasonably priced and in a great location within walking distance of great hikes and the centre of town. The hostel was renovated from on old theater and is a great spot to stay when in Katoomba.

    I really enjoyed my stay here as it's got hotel vibes and is super chill! The rooms are really big and clean, as well as have excellent security and the bathrooms are well kept. They have a huge common area with lots of things to do including a movie room, pool table, vending machine, study area and a children's area. They also have free parking! Something to be aware of is that the reception is only open for certain hours but I let them know I was going to be late and they stayed back for me.

    Lovely hostel in picturesque area, however not really a backpacker atmosphere - few weirdos and very empty and quiet in the evening. Would only go with friends, not great for solo travellers. Room was very clean and spacious. Hostel had great facilities too.

    Very Good

    The place was extremely clean. However, it also looks like it needs a major update. There were out of order signs on several things like the stove, toilet, etc. My pillow had also seen better days, being super lumpy and flat. Reception had extremely limited hours, so it was very hard to talk to them. The vibe was also weird- there was screaming children running around and multiple families, which isn’t what I had been expecting from a YHA. Overall, I’m not sure it was worth it for the cost.

    The kitchen was dirty. No clean cloths or tea towels, no concept what to do with dirty ones. Booked a private double room with a double bed (on the picture) but got a bunk bed. Quite expensive for a hostel.
