Katoomba YHA Reviews
Massive hostel that just makes the grade May 14, 2010
This is the largest hostel I've ever stayed in, so it was a suprise to see my dorm room full even in the winter season.
The 8-dorm sharing rate was AUD$29, which could be further discounted if you had a YHA card. No deposit was requiured for the security key.
Facilities were good, with pool table, large seating area, reading room, computer room, dining space and large kitchen.
The room was OK, although I have stayed in fresher rooms at smaller hostels. The bathrooms are very clean though with nice showers.
Dissapointingly you have to pay for internet access at a not too cheap AUD$4 per hour.
The kitchen was large and great for preparing your own meals, with multiple workstations and an emphasis on cleaning your own mess. Recycling is also encouraged.
The staff were helpful, without being overfriendly and there was plenty of information on things to do in the local area.
All in all, this is a good hostel, which maybe slightly expensive for what you get.
