    Take a step back in time with a visit to this YHA hostel located in a charming former Edwardian guesthouse. Spacious verandah to sit on and relax during the warmer months, whilst in winter curl up in front of the log fire in the comfy lounge. 

    Well-equipped kitchen makes it a great hostel for groups. There are large grounds with trees and gardens and it's only a short walk to the village and national park from the hostel. Reduced morning reception in quiet periods. Late/early check in by prior arrangement. Bundanoon YHA provides all bed linen and free Wi-Fi hotspot (premium Wi-Fi Plus also available). Guests provide their own towels and toiletries.

    • Hostel is in a beautiful setting with good atmosphere and "old world" traveller setting. Enjoyed Bundanoon, and on the doorstep of a tremendous national park. Glow worm glen was a treat.
