Kitchen with full amenities just like at home. Lounge is warm & cozy with the electric fire place. Toilet & bathroom clean & spacious.... More

There is also one bed on the ground level with 2 bunk beds accomodating 4 occupants. Each bedroom and living room is set up with independent heater (we came during winter). All rooms and beds are...

No 14 is a hostel, with cosy rooms, communal rooms with little nooks for quiet reading, internet catch up or listening to music. The lounge areas are filled with wonderful books, expelling the beauties of the area, the birds, the flora, the fauna, the people of past and present, of natural features and things to see. The well appointed kitchen... More

If you're looking for a clean, comfy and warm hostel for your stay in Katoomba, No14 is the place you need. Everything is perfectly well organized and I really appreciated being welcomed to enter and make myself at home outside of the check-in hours. The 5-bed dormitory room I stayed in was big and clean, with wide and comfortable wooden... More

The manager Kim was very friendly, providing lots of useful information. I was very happy with the stay and feel as though overall I definitely got more than my money's worth for the stay. The only single thing I felt genuinely disappointed about was the positioning of the dining area for eating and socialising - I felt that the communal... More

Unquestionably one of the best hostels we have stayed in during our rtw trip (we have stayed in 20+ hostels). It has a great chilled out and cosy atmosphere , spacious and very well-equipped kitchen, and a very clean bathroom.

I booked a two night stay at this hostel by email from England and the manager at the time was very helpful in arranging an extra bed in the room for 3 people as there were 4 of us but the 4 person room was booked. Our booking was for Easter weekend and on arrival the hostel was fully booked.... More
