We stayed here in January for 2 nights and couldn't recommend it enough. Close to the station. Lovely clean house and facilities. Free breakfast and coffee. Close proximity to walking tracks. Very welcoming and informative owner who provided us with maps and advice. Thank you.

The hostel was well organised, I liked thre free breakfast and the coffee was good. The fridge and dry food organisation was excellent. The staff were very knowledgeable regarding the local attractions. The location was fine for me as I had a car but may be problematic for backpackers traveling by public transport.

Lovely little place in katoomba, quiet little nook but still close to train and town. Delightful room upstairs, communal bathroom and showers all downstairs. Nice ethos regarding ecological and charitable responsibilities. Internet didn't work but they discounted room rate as a result. Very friendly and welcoming.

I was on holiday and stopped for two days in Katoomba to visit the Blue Mountains. I found this hostel at recommendation from a local I met outside of the train station. This is the perfect place for anyone looking for a quiet and quaint place that provides peaceful solitude. I also was able to connect with my hostel mates... More

This hostel is a gem. Nice and quaint, small cosy place about 7 mins walk from the station. It's a downhill walk so u do have to walk back up. Clean comfortable rooms and toilets. Excellent service, Nicolette was v nice and helpful with maps and suggestions. Would recommend people who like quiet hostels to stay in no 14!

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago, we picked the big room near the office with ensuite bathroom, it was perfect.The place is clean and the staff friendly and patient. There are good restaurants and supermarkets just beware that almost everything closes early.

A wonderful little hostel with friendly, helpful staff just a short walk from the train station and the center of town. It's close to everything and perfectly located for exploring the Blue Mountain region. Arriving at No. 14 was like returning to the cottage of my youth. There's a big country style kitchen, large dining/sitting area, small den with a... More

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
