          Very nice hostel with friendly staff that is alwaya available. It is clean, less than a 10 min walk from the train station and nice if you don't mind meeting new people. 😊 Very good price for what you get.

          We came in a big group to explore the blue mountains for the weekend. The staff were incredibly helpful and kind and made us feel very welcome. The common room was a great space too! Can't wait to come back in the future!

          Overall a good stay. I stayed in a private room. Although bed was very hard, the facilities and cleanliness of the room was good and a welcome addition was the Tv. Good shower - no hairdryer. Central to Katoomba station and Main Street.
