          The friendly personnel and the price. The room was spacious. Decent amenities.

          There was a big fuss, screaming and yelling in the middle of the night. Couldn't sleep at all!

          Great location, nice staff, free internet!

          Kitchen was a bit dirty, but they did have staff doing regular cleaning.

          Clean, large rooms & plenty of hot water

          The hostel has an amazing location- just a 5-minute walk from the railway station, and close to many shops and restaurants in the centre of Katoomba. The kitchen is big and well-equipped, so it's quite useful for cooking your own meals. The living area is large and comfortable, with beanbags in front of a cozy fireplace. The bathrooms were clean and not too busy.

          The private room was really small and basic- only contained a bed and a small coffee table. Having said that, it was very cheap.

          It has a very open and friendly atmosphere. Staff is helpful. Hot water shower is working. You have an artificial open fire in the lounge area. Good value for money if regarding the level of hostel prices in Australia.

          The hostel facilities are in great overall condition. The location is very close to the Katoomba train station and to the restaurants, bars and stores in Katoomba. The rooms are well heated and they have hot water in the showers. I only paid $22 per night which I consider an excellent deal.

          The hostel is under new management and they were having some trouble with their keys (specifically, room keys getting demagnitized before checkout and locker keys going missing). Ask for clean sheets when you arrive and bring your own towel (they didn't provide one).

          Easy to move in via the reception booking service, swipe cards are good, welcoming atmosphere. Room nice and clean. Location great.

          Parking can be an issue for loads to carry but one expects this in this location. Some parents in the early morning were letting their young children - say 5-8 yr olds run riot downstairs and the shrieking could be heard up on first level...maybe a staff member on reception needs to check it or tone it down - Ive got kids but would look after them better....

          The kitchen was well equiped There's nice attendance

          The kitchen was dirty and nasty... In the room we couldn't close the window because it was broken, so we had to sleep with the window open, and it's so cold! Also the bathrooms are dirty... When we arrived one washbasin was clogged, and nowbody clean it. When we left it was still stuck.

          Very helpful and cooperative staff. Cleanliness of room and en-suite.Proximity to cafes, pubs and shops.

          the view from our bedroom window was of a blank wall!

          Location. Price. Lots of showers. Large communal area.

          No air con in room 13 - it is very much needed!!!

        • Single
          9.6

          Friendly stuffs, large kitchen, surprisingly clean bathroom(and good water pressure) and comfortable atmosphere. It was very helpful that the laundry facilities such as washing machines and dryers are free to use!!!

          Stayed in the double room with ensuite so can only speak for that. Clean, friendly staff, wifi was ok, room spacious with linen and towels provided, close to train station.

          Slighly on the older side, kitchen could be cleaner, view on blank wall, a bit to walk from attractions and centre but still close enough

        • Single

          The sun terrace and shaded outdoor area, the size of the dorm rooms and the overall friendliness of the place.

          The kitchen was a bit chaotic, but that says more about the visitors than the hostel itself!!
