We just rocked up without reservation on Monday night and were welcomed and had a room within minutes. All very clean and cosy with good sized rooms (just saw the double rooms). They gave us good advice on possible hiking routes and supplied us with the maps we needed. Nice common area with sofas, tables and a nice fireplace. We... More

We went on a weekend to Katoomba and stayed on one of the private double rooms on the first floor. We checked-in late and all went well. Although the hotel is not very modern, it is naturally simple and everything works well. We even forgot to bring towels but the very nice lady taking care of the hostel provided some... More

I have stayed at this hostel 3 times now, once for a trip to hike in the Blue Mountains and 2 for overnight work stays!! Very comfortable, always someone interesting to chat to and offers breakfast and cooking facilities! It was cold outside but lovely and warm inside with the heater on!

was an excellent experience. The staff is super kind, the hostel so clean and cozy and the living room with the fireplace is the top. We received all the advices for our excursion and we met amazing people. And the hostel is only 10 minutes from the station/center. If one day we decide to come back to katoomba, we will... More

I have been staying here several times now and i love this place!! It's so cozy, quiet, it really feels like beeing at home. The leaving room has a fire place, the kitchen has everything you need and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff is very very friendly!

It was my first time I stayed in a backpack and I loved it, we had a suite room, we got there early in the morning and the staff give us information and tips where we could go, and we also had a breakfast. The room was clean and the decoration is lovely. I recommend and I would stay again.

This place was such a great find. We had the en suite room. Staff were very warm and helpful with all our needs, even offered information on walking tracks to take based on hostess' personal experience. Overall, very clean (however, we did find a huge creepy centipede but we believe that came from the garden outside). We even saw one... More

We absolutely LOVED this hostel which was more of a shared accommodation as we discovered, with beautiful rooms and extremely clean cooking and washroom facilities. Our fellow guests were very laid back and keen on exploring the hikes the area had to offer so it was peaceful and quiet. The hostess was very kind and helpful and everything was very... More

We booked here for two nights and wish we could stay longer. The place is so homely and really chilled atmosphere. The rooms are a little warm upstairs but there is a fan which was adequate. There is free tea, coffee and cereal which was great for us. Everything is organised so you have space in the fridge for your... More

I stayed in the hostel for 1 night and used the upstairs room (double private). Common areas, such as kitchen, living room, bathroom and toilets are really clean. My room was really warm during the day and cold at night (probably common in the mountains area). Towels are not provided but I could have a spare one without paying any... More
