I stayed in countless hostels during my 3 months in Australia and The Flying Fox was by far my favorite. Ross is very knowledgable and helpful in pointing you towards some spectacular hikes. I loved the "no technology" rule in the evening as it really encourages you to engage with your fellow travelers. If you are staying in the Blue Mountains you can't miss this place. I booked for 3 days and loved it so much I ended up staying for 2 weeks.
