Katoomba YHA is situated in an old (for Australia) building and the main eating/sitting area has retained many original features.
The family room was basic but very clean; it was just a pity that the sheets used were such drab colours. We stayed in winter and the heating system was well up to the task of keeping the room warm. The rooms have TVs and you can borrow a remote from reception for $20, I just reached up and pressed buttons on the TV. The kitchen area is large, clean and well equipped with plenty of gas burners and more than enough fridge capacity. The kitchen is looked between 10pm and 6am if wanting a midnight snack you will need to get the food before this time.
The dining and relaxation area is large with a welcoming log effect fire (unfortunately its gas fired, not real logs).
For essential supplies there is a bottle shop, Coles and ALDI just around the corner, and plenty of takeaways within easy walking distance.
