    Bed was comfortable, but the room was stuffy, window did not open completely. Doors make lot of noise, so you hear the neighbours as well, some slamm the doors really loud. In case you have a big backbag or luggage, the only way from the rail statio...

    The staff were very helpful. The other guests we met there were mostly friendly. It was a little disappointing that a small minority of the guests did not clean the kitchen utensils, benches etc after using them, to a reasonable standard.

    Nice-ish place to stay, but obviously getting a bit tired, and certainly no view for the extra that we paid for. All in all not bad, but not fantastic!

    Ben P. (November 2014)

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hostel is in a great location with tons of adventure/activity offers. It also has a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Thanks for a great stay!

    We love to stay at YHA Katoomba. Our third visit did not disappoint. We hope to come again before too much longer.

    Relaxed and cruisey vibe within easy reach of the beautiful scenery of the blue mountains.
