In comparison to other YHA hostels that I've stayed in, this one ranks somewhere in the middle. That being said, I really enjoyed my stay and I would definitely recommend this hostel. The rooms were really clean and everyone was provided with a GIGANTIC locker, I loved being able to store all my stuff securely. The reception also provides free... More

This hostel is located perfectly in the center of Katoomba, close to supermarkets and restaurants and walking-distance to Katoomba Scenic World. Even if slightly worn-down, both the kitchen, common area, and our room was clean and functional, and the hostel has a good atmosphere. The staff is friendly, and the parking round the back is very convenient if you need... More

This is a really nice backpacker hostel. The location is good - about half way down Katoomba Rd between the station and Echo Point etc. It's also near shops and eateries and right near the supermarkets. It has a very large and pleasant eating area and sitting area, as well as a separate little room for quiet reading (with some... More

This hostel was fantastic - from a family perspective (2 kids below 5 years) I would trade in any Hilton or Sheraton for a place like this. Very welcoming and helpful staff, excellent (and large enough) kitchen facilities, nice and quiet rooms (make sure to book family room well in advance) and very good and clean washrooms.

This hostel is amazing. The staff are very friendly and the night guards always introduced themselves just in case of emergencies. The rooms are spacious, I was in an 8 share dorm, and are nice and tidy. There are lots of things to do around the hostel and everything is in walking distance. The walks are amazing too and there...

I'm never a fan of hostel yet this experience was definitely a pleasant one. We stayed for 2 nights at the en-suite room. The room was clean with sufficient space. The walls were a bit thin as we could hear whisper sound of our neighbours' rooms as well as cracking of the floor as people walk pass the corridor. All... More

I've been here twice with groups of friends staying in the 8 bed dorm and have enjoyed both stays. This YHA served as an ideal base for my group heading out for canyoning and bushwalking each day, especially since the meeting point for a lot of those activities are within walking distance from the YHA. The toilet/shower was very clean... More

I only stayed here one night but would've liked to have stayed longer. Clean facilities and plenty of space to chill out in the communal areas. Staff were friendly and helpful if you had any questions about activities/ walks in the local area. You can get to most of the walks without a car but it can take quite a... More

Spent 2 nights here in a 4 share dorm room which was very comfortable. Large kitchen but the 2 microwaves were not functioning that well (one was completely stuffed). Nice big TV room which comfortable seats and a gorgeous dance floor/ball room for a lounge. This was once a guest house opened in 1918 so has a lot of character.... More
