On arrival we self-checked into our room and later came back during office ours to get some great local advice from the hosts of No.14. We had a room up stairs facing the street, which at times could be loud due traffic, perhaps rooms facing the back would be quieter. The room had adequate space for two people and luggage,... More

Friendly staff who can give you great suggestions, welcoming and quiet atmosphere and warm and clean rooms. Just the bathroom had a quite chill temperature, but the shower was really hot, you didn't realized it.

Everything is clean and well organised! Tje direction to the hostel is easily understood but it will be quite a walk if you plan to have dinner in the town. No issue in checking in although the office is close. The manager is thoughtful and friendly too. I would stay there again in future.

Generally, its good value for an expensive place like the Blue Mountains. However, it still has a backpacker feel to it. While it was very clean, if you stay downstairs, you'd need to track past the rooms in hallway, the common area and kitchen to get to the bathroom. A good place if you're an 'older' backpacker who appreciates cleanliness,... More

I really enjoyed my three nights at this hostel. It has a very homely relaxed feel. It is friendly but quiet. This wooden building with its high ceilings puts me in mind of the early European settlers. The rooms are very nice, great beds and sheets (which are all ready when you arrive). I stayed in the a dorm but... More

The Kitchen was adequately equipped, I liked the fact each room had an alocated box in the fridge and a cupboard shelf. The common areas were very comfortble, it was nice to sit outide... More

I moved to the No. 14 after two nights at another hostel in town and was extremely impressed. The place is peaceful and quiet yet only a ten-minute walk from the train station. The owners, staff, and other guests were friendly and welcoming, and I felt at home very quickly. The whole building, from the kitchen to the showers to... More

I stayed one night at this hostel and was delighted. Not being a hostel person normally I was really happy with my room and the shared areas, they were very clean and well maintained. Breakfast is simple but good and tea and coffee is available throughout the day. Great location and really helpful staff. A great find!

There is a freedom and a structure provided at this hostel that lovingly encourages guests to enjoy the house and behave respectfully during their stay. And that is exactly what happens. There is a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere, and everything you can think of is provided. I had forgotten to pack a towel and was provided a pink, fluffy,... More
