Liked: The calm and chilled atmosphere emanating from the place. Wooden construction, giving the 'hut-like' feel. If you are going to visit the blue mountains and are ready to hike, this is one of the best places to get your well deserved rest. Free breaky!!

Disliked: How cold it was in the showers at all times of day. Another minor but still a little frustrating is the free wifi, with only 100MB data packages.

Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful, the private room was quaint and warm and had a pretty view over some trees and other houses. I liked the fact there were two common rooms and the hostel was amply heated during a very cold night. The showers were large and hot, even in the very cold bathroom.

Disliked: I'd been really looking forward to staying as the reviews about atmosphere were one of the main reasons we picked the hostel. Unfortunately, there was a large family of 8 staying at the hostel, and to be honest, they totally ruined the vibe. They completely took over the kitchen and the common room with the fire place, not for an hour but until after 10pm, three kids under the age of 8 were running around the hostel. It meant everyone else in the hostel retreated to their rooms. We weren't after a party, just an opportunity to chat to fellow travellers and drink a glass of wine by the fire. I'm sure had the family not been there, we would've enjoyed our stay a lot more, but unfortunately the family really destroyed the atmosphere. It might be an idea to ensure guests know it's a family-friend hostel.

Liked: Very Clean, quiet and friendly travellers/staff. Staff are very helpful and very relaxed. Its very "cottage like" and has a lot of character. The kitchen facilities are great and clean. There's free wifi although sometimes the signal isn't great but you would expect that being in the blue mountains.Best hostel we've stayed in the whole time we have been in Australia as it feels homely and good value for money! Its only 5mins from the Katoomba train station, 5mins to the supermarkets/cafes etc and only a 40min straight walk down to the echo point and walks etc or there's a bus for $2.30 that will take you there..

Disliked: liked everything!
