    Cosy & cute A lovely little hostel in a great location just 10 mins from the station. Small breakfast provided, quite thin walls so would recommend ear plugs & a super helpful host who advises on great local walks.

    Best hostel I've been at. Staff were amazing at giving recommendations for nearby hikes and things to do. Good atmosphere as well - my roommates and I hung out in the common area until late socializing.

    Great little boutique hostel. It was freezing outside and really nice and cozy inside. The owner made us feel very welcome straight away. 3 minute walk from the main street. Good lounges to relax in and well equipped kitchen. Would definitely recommend.

    No14 is a fantastic hostel. The owner is very friendly and helpful and offered us a free room upgrade as our stay coincided with some renovations being done during the day (which we completely missed because we were out). The hostel is located around 15 minutes away from the Katoomba main street and has a lot of on street parking. Overall we had a lovely time and will definitely be coming back!
