The private room is quite big and super clean, even the bathroom. We had a very comfortable sleep. The staff are friendly and helpful. The Location is perfect, only five minutes walk from Katoomba Station and there are many restaurants and groceries nearby.More

Such a cute place to stay a night or two in Katoomba if you are with friends and have a small budget. Great wifi service and bunch of game choice. The only con - is the bathroom but everything else makes up for it.
