This YHA has got an excellent range of facilities: large and clean kitchen with all necessary utensils, comfortable couches, a broad amount of books and magazines and the house has a nice atmosphere. The staff is professionally polite and friendly. We stayed in a five bed dorm which was pretty standard - but clean and spacious. The Blue Mountains are... More

The YHA is in a good location - easy to find, once you know where you're going and is very close to the cafes, shops and restaurants in Katoomba. The receptionists were very friendly, and the atmosphere was more family friendly. They even have fleeces to hire if needed! Which is good because the Blue Mountains can get quite cold.... More

Hostel clean with lots of facilities - good kitchen, good tv/DVD room although you can't get DVDs out of reception after 10pm. Receptionists v friendly. Beds comfy. Showers bit old and leaked but bathrooms ok. Lots of floor space and storage space in dorms. Also some desks in the 6bed dorms.

We stayed at this YHA for 2 nights prior to new years eve and it was packed out! We had an ensuite double room, on the first floor and whilst the room was a decent size with okay furnishing, we were right at the top of the staircase so all traffic flowed past us. In addition, it was definitely a... More

Now that I'm in my thirties, I was feeling quite reluctant to stay at a hostel while on holiday in Australia. But I eventually caved cause I saw all the great reviews and I am so glad I did. In fact, I wish I could have stayed longer! It was such a nice hostel. I was greeted by a friendly... More

Only stayed here for one night, but was completely taken by the town and the Blue Mountains. Blue Mountains YHA was a fine place to rest your head for the night. It was very clean and quiet through the night. I wouldn't plan on sleeping in, though. I was in a street-side room and the street started getting pretty noisy... More

The rooms were big and clean. The bathrooms were spotless. Loved the showers - powerful and warm. Perfect after a long day walking through the rainforest. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside was the internet. The signal wasn't quite strong enough to reach the bedrooms.

3 of us friends stayed here for 1 night on our recent Australia trip - would rate it as the best hostel I've stayed in. We stayed in a 5-bed, mixed room. Rooms & hostel in general is very clean. Bathrooms were spotless (not common in hostels). Rooms have lockers for luggage. They provide magnetic, striped cards as keys -... More

We (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed there for 2 nights. We had a large family room. Everything is clean and well maintained. It is a great YHA with a very friendly night-guard. The manager at the reception was pretty stressed... However, we can recommend this place in the wonderful city of Katoomba.

We stayed here on a weekend break from Sydney, finding it both well located and appointed. Our ensuite room was on the ground level and was big enough for a short stay. Decent heating was a blessing, given the winter temperatures, and the proximity to both Aldi and the Yellow Deli was very handy. The hostel is located in a... More
