We stayed in the 2 pax ensuite private room and felt that the layout of the room wasn't optimal. It is extremely basic, and it does require some hooks it the toilet to hang stuff. Overall it is acceptable for its convenience to the town centre and Katoomba station with ample free parking right outside. Check in was fuss free, and one of the staff also lent us a hairdryer.

Conveniently located, extremely clean
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. They helped me pick a trail when I mentioned that I would be doing one in the area. The common room is huge, and has a piano, fireplace, pool table, and foosball table. The kitchen is extremely clean, cleaner than any hostel kitchen I've seen. The rooms were very spacious, and very clean as well. The only downside is that there was only one area where there were power outlets, so everyone had to put their electronics there. The wifi could also be very slow at times. It's about a five minute walk from Katoomba station, and a 30 minute walk to Echo Point, so definitely a good place to stay if you are looking to do some hikes and travelling without a car.

Comfortable stay
I didn't expect but I spent several nights... longer nights than expected. Located in quiet and lovely local town and easy access from Sydney, I payed less to stay and had a cozy time. Wifi connection was slow in a limited area, that wa all I mainly felt not comfy. But there was an Internet room and it was quiet, good to net surfing in a quiet space. Bed was clean and I could sleep well. Kitchen was well equipped. I saw stuff had maintained the space clean, that was good. Bathroom where shower space was built together with toilet got wetty as time passed in the day, so recommended to use earlier if wanted to use clean one. There is beaytiful scenic mountain spot and cozy local street with most of shops gathered in a small community, so it is recommended and valuable for those in need of that.
