A relatively quiet mountain town, Katoomba is home to a range of boutique shops and some of the best dining west of Sydney.
It is also a short distance from many look outs, walking trails, climbing areas and canyons.
A train line runs through the centre of town making it easy to get to from Sydney.
Our spacious hostel, with an extensive kitchen and communal areas, BBQ facilities, free guest laundry, Internet and WIFI, offers all the creature comforts of home.
Working with the major tour and activity guides, we believe we have put together a variety of packages which would suit all travellers, from first-time adventurers to those who really want to test themselves.
Our extra large communal areas are perfect for winding down after a hectic day of exploring.
A huge lounge room provides comfortable sofas, big screen TV and a roaring fire when the winter winds hit.
A large kitchen contains all the latest mod cons for all those who want to show off their culinary skills.
