I liked that I could book a room with an en-suite. However, I thought it odd, that although a kettle was provided, there were no cups!

I think maybe having a row of large pots with pencil pines will make an eco friendly wind barrier where people sit outside in winter to enjoy outdoor area during the day. Or bunching up shrubs as a border around the seating can have uplighting as well to be nice to look at at night

10/10 Exceptional

We’ve never used a YHA before and thought at 79 we were probably way too old to start. However we were completely wrong it was perfect for our needs, quiet despite having 2 large groups of school children and the staff apologetic for the noise which we only heard when they were arriving at a reasonable time Right next door to an Aldi and on the main street of Katoomba it could not be more convenient. Our ensuite double was clean and comfortable and fully equipped.

A YHA but fabulous. Location great. Great value and a refreshing change from anonymous hotels. Would have no hesitation to book next time in the Blue Mountains

An historic property, which is well kept, comfortable and well positioned. Very clean overall. Kitchen organised but with many people using it can get to needing an extra tidy. plenty of fridge space, but only one small freezer, so don't buy a packet of ice creams before checking there's room. Staff very friendly and helpful. Comfortable common areas to sit and read, watch tv, have a chat with other travelers. Needs comfortable, towels of good quality. Lovely outdoor areas to sit in the sun or cool evening air. Very secure. Will stay again and recommend to travelers on a budget.
