Everything here is nice except... ”

the hostel has everything a traveller will need, from laundry to kitchen and many more. room is clean and spacious. rarely u would see such generosity in the space given in a room. however I noticed that some of the staff would not reveal to you the cheaper options available when you asked them for the ways to tour around the town. instead, they would recommend you to take up tour packages. for instance, if you are going to only visit the few popular places at Blue Mountain, the staff would suggest to you to either purchase the day pass for Explorer bus (which is 50 bucks) or walk to the places. they made it sound like there is no other way which there actually is! you could actually take public buses which cost u only 4 bucks! I do not know why but why wouldn't they tell me there is public buses to the places I wanted to go? :( well, while it might be a good thing to have partnerships with the tour companies when comes to the offers they are able to provide but probably not get too obsessed in getting the deals done, perhaps? but generally I must still say your staff are friendly. :)

full of families and children and groups. So if you are a couple or solo traveller be aware, the premises is full of young noisy children who are up at all hours of the day and night. This is fine, you just need to be aware of it. Best to sit somewhere else if you want a quiet read.

Clean, value for money, convenient ”

We took our 3 year old daughter for a 3 day trip in blue mountains for trekking. As hotels options are not as good as Sydney, we opted for youth hostel. I am pleasantly surprised by the room quality we received in the family room. It's spacious, functional and even themed! The hostel itself is close to laundromat, two supermarkets and still within walking distance of the main street (uphill walk though) The kitchen is huge and very functional, so very convenient for self-catering. Very much recommended for solo or family travelers.

Marvellous A Star Hostel”

Loved everything about Blue mountain YHA..it appears more like a resort. Walked perhaps 10mins frm Katoomba train station to YHA. Just straight down e lane. From YHA 5mins walk to the left with Woolworths & Aldi supermarts. Perhaps 8mins to the left w Coles. Very convienent opend till 12midnight. Kitchen is always so neat & organised. You can contribute your food or get free food on at the bottom of the fridge. Plus point a water dispenser right at the kitchen. Cosy environment at the Common area & eating tables . Beddings r comfy & quite firm...However pillow kinda thin need fold into half. Overall slept well with no back& neck ache. U have a bedside lamp & 2 AC plug for charging. Bring own locker & keys. Will book this hostel again if visiting blue mountains! Definitely more than what i expected for the price of usual hostel fee. Downside floors quite squeaky along the corridor walkways..

Great location at the town centre of Katooba, professional and friendly staffs, excellent cleanliness in room and kitchen and public area

Best hostel I have ever been to in Aus so far. I have stayed in Aus for 4 months and been to Melbourne, Uluru, Alice Spring and Sydney. The staffs at blue mountain YHA are so far the BEST!!! Very friendly, helpful and professional!!! Even the guests are proper, considerate and well mannered. Therefore, the public area is always clean and tidy without anyone yelling or making loud noise. Just 15-20 minutes walk to the major attractions e.g. 3 sisters lookout, scenic world and only 25-30 minutes walk to Leura. The hop on and off bus service is not necessary. The hostel is located at the main streets with lots of restaurants and next to a huge grocery shop! The Best Stay we have ever had in Aus!!! Enjoy so much!!!
