Staying here feels more like staying in someone's home rather than a hostel. I am currently the only person in a four bed dorm. The staff are really friendly - when she hadn't seen me get back from a day exploring the Blue Mountains the lady was going to phone me to make sure I was ok. There is a... More

This hostel is much more like a home than a hostel. When we arrived we were greeted by the owners, and a roaring fire. It was cosy, comfortable and incredibly clean. There was a free breakfast, tea, coffee and WiFi with comfy sofas to chill out on and spacious rooms. If you are a backpacker, this No 14 is perfect... More

I spent 1 night here and it was clean, homely and peaceful. The booking in system is cute and old fashioned, based on trust. There is a lot of character here, clean kitchen and bathrooms, nice common room and outdoor seating areas. Free cereal and WiFi. Would recommend.

This hostel is very homely - it was recommended in our Rough Guides book and we weren't disappointed. We had a private double, which was very sweet. The shared dorms looked very nice, clean and homely too. The facilities were great - brilliant kitchen and very clean bathrooms. We are a young couple and felt comfortable here. There were people...

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!

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! The situation is great as it's walking distance from the... More
