Pros - good value for money for all the convenience it provides--location, value for money. The place is old but they keep it clean and working. Great to have free laundry facility (didn't need during our stay), free ice and complete kitchen utensils. Cons - a bit of a queue for checking in as there was only 1 staff at that time but he's lovely.

We left it last minute to book so there wasn't may accommodation options left. For the money we couldn't complain very close to the centre of town, bathrooms were spotless and only a short drive to many walks and attractions. Would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere no frills for a night or two.

good, relaxed, easy access to the train station”

the hostel is situated just some 2-3 min. from the Katoomba train station, walking distance to shops, travel agencies offering activities in Blue Mountains and pubs etc.; It's a longer walk to 3 Sisters viewing point (maybe a 15-20 min. run). I've stayed in a mixed shared room with 2 bunk beds; there was plenty of space in the room and the lockers in the room are big enough to store anything you'd like to lock away. The downstairs communal area felt relaxed, no big party animals, just friendly people. The receptionist was chatty and friendly and really seemed to be enjoying his job at the hostel. All in all definitely a good place to stay at.

Great stay for Backpackers”

Price, Location, and Staff

I had a lovely stay at the Blue Mountains Backpackers Hostel. They had a great location near the train station, the hotel was easy to find, and it is also near the Katoomba Street. There are a lot of supermarkets around the area. The Katoomba streets had a lot of restaurants and stores, and there's a bus stop that could take you around Katoomba and Leura. The dorm and bed were okay and there is a locker you can use and secure your stuff in inside the dorm. There's only one bathroom per dorm but there are common restrooms in the common area. The kitchen is huge and you can borrow kitchen supplies for you to cook as long as you keep it tidy afterwards. Sometimes, the staff will leave apples they got from their backyard to share with their guests. The staff were great, they were a big help.

Good location, but have to pay to store your luggage after checkout”

The hostel is located within a 5 minute walk from Katoomba Station. There is a Coles supermarket within 5 minutes walk as well. We stayed in a private double room and thought it was comfortably sized. Do however note that they are strict on the checkout time of 10 am and if you were to leave your baggage with them after checkout, you would have to pay $5. We were quite surprised with the additional charge as it was not expressly stated in any notice at the reception.

A nice place to stay”

The Hostel is good located and it just takes 5 minutes to walk to it from the Katoomba Station. It was possible to check-in 1 hour before the advertised earliest check in. We booked a bunk room for 2 and this is definitely big enough for 2 people and a lot of luggage. A television was mounted at the wall and the beds were ready to sleep as we arrived. So you don't have to put the sheets or the pillowcase on it by yourself. A cotton towel was also included so I don't had to use my own one. Very nice if you leave early in the morning and the own could not dry anymore. The kitchen is good equipped and big enough. There are 4 or 5 stoves, so enough space for a lot of people to cook at the same time. There are some ovens as well. But the nicest thing which I've only seen in much more expensive hostels are - they have a very big freezer. The bathrooms are very clean and big. In total there was only one bad thing at the stay. A lot of hair in the blankets, really a lot!
