    Staff were very helpful and courteous when I made a last minute booking and when I arrived. This hostel is a lovely place to stay in a beautiful building

    This hostel was in a good location and was clean. The kitchen was large and well stocked with all the essentials and the Aldi 2 mins walk away was a real bonus. The building had a bit of history to it to.

    Stayed for one night in autumn/winter. There is a good lounge area with a lot of space to absorb people (even kids) and a wood-burning fireplace. Great base for walks and close to the station.

    I enjoyed my one night stay here. it was very quiet the night I stayed and I ended up with a whole 4 bed room to myself. There was plenty of space, lots of sofas etc. around the hostel. Kutchen facilities were good and clean. Staff were friendly.

    Really nice place to relax and discover the beauty of the Blue Mountains.
    Froukje D May 2015
    Simply the best. The Blue Mountains cannot be beat, Katoomba is a town worth the train ride from Sydney, the building is clean, well maintained, and has very helpful and friendly staff.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
