I stayed here with my family for two nights and the experience was great! The lady who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. She assisted us in getting around the places of attraction in Blue Mountains. They had free breakfast (cereal, oat, and milk) and very well-equipped kitchen. We stayed in a 5-bed dorm. It was very comfortable... More

Just needing a comfortable and cheap place to stay at Katoomba before we embarked on a canyoning experience number 14 exceeded my expectations for a hostel. As a couple we didn't feel much like the dorm accommodation and we're lucky to get one of the double rooms. Very clean and super organised spaces and kitchen. Complimentary breakfast cereals and tea,coffee... More

The house is super cozy with nice seating areas, a kitchen, dining room and several rooms. The staff is super friendly and made us feel right at home. We were handed maps and given great advice for our trip! 100% would recommend

We came to Katoomba for the NorthFace100 race and stayed in a double room for 2 nights. It was perfect for our stay! The place is really relaxed and comfortable. Our key was waiting for us and we could check in on our own. The room was comfortable and the place was filled with relaxed and like minded people (other... More

The hostel is a lovely 5 minute walk from katoomba station, when we arrived the staff where really friendly and helpful. The hostel is really clean and warm with the fire place always on.

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
