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

So where do I start with this hostel, there are so many great things to say. It is kept amazingly clean by the team of cleaners. It has nice, cozy dorms if you go there in the winter months. The reception staff are very helpful and have a wealth of knowledge about the walks - in fact they even gave... More

Reasonably priced, staff are friendly and helpful. Kitchen is large and clean although the tea towels could use some more frequent replacements! But that's a minor point really. Beds are comfy, and showers are good too.

Stayed here for one night in a double em suite . It was good value for money and you have everything you need in the room . It's a very quiet hostel compared to other yhas but still very nice and central . Close to shops and train station . Would go again

We stayed here for a 2 night break recently and it rates for me as one of the best hostel experiences I've had (a welcome break from some of the more noisy hostels in Sydney). We stayed in a private room (Wentworth Falls room) with a nice view overlooking the garden - the kettle & coffee in the room were... More

Booked last minute as friends were already staying in a fancy hotel up the road. Easy to find, central location to all activities in Katoomba. I was lucky in being 1 of only 2 people in a 4 bed shared dorm, which made for a quiet night, although the walls between rooms were quite thin. The room actually had 1... More

Stayed here from 3rd to 5th November. Overall we had a great experience staying here. Located in a central area along the main Katoomba Street, about 10 minutes from the station and 20 minutes from Echo Point. Supermarkets and cafes within 5 minutes walking distance. Staff are nice and friendly, and place is well maintained. Staff were very prompt and... More

Spent 4 nights here end of September. Really liked this YHA. Was still a bit chilly at night but was nice and warm inside. The facilities including bathroom and kitchen were clean,and I loved the Art Deco features that have been retained. Staff very helpful and welcoming and there was a mixture of guests, including families and groups, which was... More
