Stay at the award-winning Blue Mountains YHA hostel and enjoy the comfort of the log fire, cosy warm rooms (many with ensuite), great kitchen and fast internet. Located in the heart of Katoomba, Blue Mountains - the adventure capital of NSW, this YHA is ideal accommodation for backpackers.
Housed in a beautifully restored National Trust building, the hostel is a stone’s throw from breathtaking national parks and bush landscapes of Leura, Echo Point and Three Sisters.
Save with YHA discounts on heaps of activities, tours and attractions from the hostel.
Whether you are after a city break or are travelling around Australia, you won’t be disappointed with your stay at our Blue Mountains YHA.
