The receptionist was very nice. The kitchen and hangout area was big.
The location was a bit out of the way with a roundabout crossing you have to cross from the train station, which is a bit weird at night. The towels had stains. The bathroom door would roll over the essential outlet that you can use which will basically destroy your adapter if you're not careful.
Great location near the train station, great facilities and a good bed!
Great deal for a one week stay in Katoomba, overall good facilities for the price Staff was alright and generally helpful Free laundry ! Great big lockers in the room Staying in a 4-bed dorm is a good option- you might have the dorm to yourself during some weekdays if it isn't busy and more manageable to stay than in 6-bed dorm for example. Relatively spacious lounge- might not be so spacious when the hostel is busy though. Good location
The bunk beds shake when you climb them- but like REALLY SHAKE. Some beds are better than others -the one I was on was alright- but overall it seems the room could do with a tad of a refurbish. The pillows given are useless too. Bring yours if you can. No mesh screens on the windows. If it's hot with a full dorm you aren't in luck- you'll have to put a fan on which makes tons of noise, or open the windows... which may give onto the railway station depending which side your room is in. From description/photos it might seem the hostel is quite big- it is a tad smaller in reality. There wasn't really a study room- I think the room which appears on the picture with several computers is now the one with one computer, sofa and a TV- so there isn't really a space to sit down and work on your laptop other than the lounge, which can get busy. You can always go at the library and many cafes in Katoomba though. The kitchen is fine and facilities alright especially for the price- but I wouldn't want to be there when the hostel is full (probably applies to most hostels in Katoomba though)- there isn't a lot of seating to eat dinner for example (which was OK at this time, but probably not when it's busy).
Friendly staff. Lots of things for entertainment in the common rooms. Massive kitchen with everything you'd need. Chill vibe with a good mix of people. Found it relatively easy to find parking on the street outside and the town (and it's a nice town) is walking distance. Free laundry facilities and they give you 1 free bag of detergent too. Generally roomy everywhere too. And a fireplace!
Room was large and comfortable and very quiet. Kitchen was also large, clean and well stocked.
The room was very hot- with no fan or air conditioning.
With a stay at Blue Mountains Backpacker Hostel in Katoomba, you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Katoomba Scenic World and Three Sisters. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, express check-out, and luggage storage. Free self parking is available onsite.
