We booked a package where we had 2 nights accommodation and an unlimited pass to the scenic discovery world. We arrived rather tired after a sleepless night at 7am, and were able to store our belongings, and have a valuable couple hours nap in the living area, which by the way is HUGE wit h loads of sofas, games machines,...

The hostel is located in an old building which looks quite inviting from the outside and gives you a very nice feeling - something like "coming home". The rooms are clean and comfortable. The living area and the kitchen are beautiful. Comfortable, well equiped and especially the living area very very comfortable. Stuff is very friendly and helpfull. A very... More

As hostels goes this is a 5*. See bullet points below for general feedback but would also like to thank the lady (former tour guide) gentleman (long hair) for advice on where to go hiking. Blue mountains are amazing, on a par with anything in New Zealand and the lady and gentleman aided me to see the best parts whilst... More

The hostel is peaceful, quiet and clean and the facilities are good, there is a large kitchen and lounge area. It's an enormous hostel with a slightly odd vibe but nice enough to stay in. The barbecue wasn't working and the wifi was down when we were there which were both frustrating but the location is ideal for walking the... More

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.
