    • Very relaxed friendly atmosphere. The kitchen/ lounge areas are great especially the fireplace.

    • Nice big dorm rooms. Each bunk with its own set of 2 power points and reading lights . Shared bathrooms a little small. No lift and quite a few stairs. Large well equiped communial kitchen with gas stoves fridges a hot water dispenser and an oven. Heaps of space to sit and relax. Great outdoor area with a water feature and views. Pay per use storage lockers within a storage room. Communial tv room and large decent dinning area. Day tours can be booked at check in desk. Basically one of my favourite YHAs outside of Sydney and I enjoy staying here. 10 to 15 min walk downhill from Katoomba railway station and there is an Aldi Woolworths and Coles supermarket close by. Parking nearby.
