Great amenities. Great location plus very educational and helpful staff. Its a beautiful building with plenty of character original features. A over all 5 star place for a good price. My only niggle is no fan in the bedroom which made the 28degree evening on saturday night a little uncomfy to sleep. Even with windows open. But then again its...

Good location and hostel. We had two en suite rooms, which were basic but clean. Kitchen and lounge area are great. There was a bit of drama about people pinching food when we were there but its a hostel - we just kept ours in the room and then bagged up our fridge stuff and hid it at the back....

It is a very substandard accommodation and i booked for a day with my family. I didn't sleep at all as you cannot even call this as a standard accommodation. It is a total lie in a nutshell. You will lose your money if you book at this place. Damn sure..

This is a really lovely hostel in an excellent position in the Blue Mountains. It is very clean and comfortable, feels more like a hotel. It has a very tranquil atmosphere and the staff are all very helpful and friendly. After the frenzy of a Sydney backpackers it was an oasis of calm. Wish I had time to stay longer.

At 63 years old this was my first stay in a hostel, I usually avoid them for various reasons but my stay with this hostel was a surprise. The location was very good, in the Main Street within walking distance to just about everything. Aldi, Woolworths and Big W within 50 metres of the hostel. I booked a queen room...

Best hostel I have ever visited! It really felt like a hotel in common areas. Soothing music was played all the time which made the atmosphere really nice and relaxing. Very clean everywhere and helpful staff. We saw families with children, backpackers and seniors. Everybody seemed to like this hostel a lot! Only problem we had were the key cards....

Went there as a couple, 43 and 55. We expected bunkbeds but were pleasantly surprised to get a beautiful room with a nice big bed and an onsuite bathroom. Not at all like a youth hostel. Ordered breakfast there as well as Katoomba Cafés can be pricey. In all..very nice stay.
