The place is falling to peices. Cold rooms, completely inadequate kitchen facilities and weirdos that seem to live there all the time. To top it off, they'll charge whatever they feel like for rooms and don't stick to any advertised price. There are cheaper and much nicer hostels in Katoomba.

Did not realise it was a Back Packers Hostel. Room was cold, no rug or mat on wooden floor boards. No TV in room. When we were being shown around, I tripped & fell on the small step up towards the bathroom/toilet area. Landed face first, hurt my wrist & knee. Was offered a band aid incase I was bleeding....

I don't writer reviews often. However my experience deems this a worthy post so that many of you out there can use your hard earned cash at a better lodge. All I have to say is that they have no idea what customer service is. I waited in reception for 20 minutes before the receptionist came to take my booking.... More

This is very much a budget hotel - shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. Shared and private rooms available - single private room was $65. Triple share room was $27 per person. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable with a basin and minor, wardrobe, extra blankets and doona, heaters and electric blankets which is a must for this area... More

To those who understand the term 'budget accommodation' will understand that you're not booking into a 5 star hotel. You're there simply to appreciate the experience of the mountains and its surroundings on a budget. And what do you need to do so? A comfortable and affordable place to rest your head at the end of the day. But the... More

Great location, single rooms were well appointed and common areas clean and well kept. Would recommend as good budget accommodation. Right in the centre of katoomba close to cafes, bars and attractions. On site car parking a definite plus.

Great price, location & free parking! While the lodge appears older, it still provided a great place to kick back & relax...or a good jumping off point for mountain hikes! Cooking facilities provided; coffee & cereal provided if grocery shopping isn't your thing. The staff was friendly & knowledgeable. The living room & dining room were large & accommodating...plus 2... More
