Nice place to stay Walking distance from town centre Comfy beds Nice bathroom Only complaint is definitely not sound proof. You can sneeze without everyone knowing Large windows and great curtains that block out all the light for afternoon naps

Hubby wanted to have a Christmas in July so of course we headed for the Blue Mountains. With 2 teenage children we had to strike a balance between comfortable & cool. We opted for the YHA in Katoomba as we are life members and the Hostel had a special for Yulefest - a package for 4 with brekkie and a... More

Big hostel, nice and big common area and wonderful big kitchen to cook! They have everything needed in the kitchen. Staff is helpful, dorms are clean and cosy when you choose for the 4 or 6 dorm. WiFi is not great but you can get for 5$ premium that works faster.

Once again back to the YHA. Lovely and warm. such a relaxed ambience. This time I become unwell. There was much care and concern by staff. The bug passed but it was good to know there was help on hand if required. We went for a walk to the reopened Grand Canyon. Such a quality track. We strated from Neates... More

Right in the middle of Katoomba. Welcoming, old world hostel. Great kitchen facilities. The family room was good, and had all we needed. A very popular hostel so it can get crowded. Lots of exchanges about where to go in the Blue Mountains and what to do. Close to supermarkets.

Excellent value,very clean and comfortable beds.Noisy but there are large groups and many children running around,so this is to be expected but by 10pm most people were asleep.Very helpful staff on reception,also the kitchen had everything you needed. Would definitely stay here again as it's located in the town close to all the sights.

Stayed for three nights in June. The stay was just about perfect. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. It was very warm although it was cold outside. Wifi worked very well. I would highly recommend this hostel when in the Blue Mountains.

I made a mistake in making the booking and we arrived one after the day we booked. Luckily the receptionist made no problem with this, and we could stay there one night . Personal in the hostel were really nice with us, and explained us all the spots to go around blue mountains. Our experience there was totally different because... More

We got an en-suite so it was comfortable. Looks like a good place for groups...the communal areas were quite cool and conducive for chatting and hanging out with other travellers. If you're going bush hiking, you can borrow a tracking devices for free. Lots of information for travellers wanting to plan activities during your stay in Katoomba. We walked to... More
