    Truly loved it and it was really recommended to all travellers. It's convenient, supermarket, restaurants just nearby. Staff super friendly. Kitchen well supplied and you'll feel like at home. Especially those who love to cook their own meals. Its a great place, fresh air and brilliant scenery. Especially when you join the bush walk up to the Blue Mountains. It'll take less than 30 mins. ❤️

    This is a family hostel. Very homie and comfortable. The kitchen was big enough for the busy ANZAC holiday people. We went on a bush walk and they made us register so the staff could be aware if anything happened ... they made you feel protected and safe.

    I enjoyed my stay here. It is a 10 minute walk from the train station, but it’s all sidewalk so not too bad if you have a suitcase. It’s another 20 something minute walk to the the three sisters and other walking trails. It’s right next to an Aldi and woolworths as well as restaurants so if you don’t have a car it’s a good location. The kitchen and lounge are huge. This hostel definitely has more of a family atmosphere.

    Pros: beautiful chalet style large hostel. Very roomy. Good location for walking to Three Sisters. Close to grocery stores and food. Cons: a bit of a walk from the train station. Not much of a social atmosphere when I was there , felt a bit empty

    Another great YHA hostel, never disappointed. Only downside is always the atmosphere can be a bit dull but in saying that it's great for when you want a relaxing time away.

    Perfect location for exploring the blue mountains. As a solo traveller I struggled to meet new people, as most people at this hostel seemed to be in groups. Good kitchen facilities and loved the lounge area!

    Very helpful staff, but glad I didn't buy the $2 route maps as they appear to be the exact same ones displayed at the start of the walks and aren't very high quality!
