Staff were friendly! Check in and out was super easy and they were hospitable and always offered advise to keep us safe if we’re on hikes or tours.

The hostel was conveniently located on the edge of the town centre. 1 minute walk to the supermarket, bottle shop and tonnes of cafes, restaurants, bars and unique shops. The room was clean and all linen was provided in my private room. Staff were super friendly. We utilised the outdoor Chess set which was fun and we also went on a High'N'Wild Canyoning tour (the office is located in the YHA). 6/5 stars!!

We had the best time with YHA in Katoomba. The only thing that bother us is the hige fee.

Clean hostel with very friendly staff. Facilities run down. Doona cover was for a king bed, so the doona kept sliding around, a lot of road noise and noise (including swearing) from the room next door to us. Had labeled food taken out of the fridge. Tried to play table tennis, but both of the bats were broken .

CUSTOMER REVIEWS ON YHA.COM.AU

YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That’s why when you give us your email address, you will be invited to rate your hostel stay upon checkout.

We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish comments online:

INAPPROPRIATE OR OFFENSIVE COMMENTS

We will not publish inappropriate and/or offensive comments.

Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language, swearing or references to illicit drug usage.

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

We will not publish any comments that are not directly related to the hostel, or your experience during your stay.

Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated, incorrect or you did not stay at the hostel that you are commenting on.

COMMENTS INCLUDING STAFF NAMES

We will not publish comments that include full staff names, irrespective of whether your comment is positive or negative.

First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

If you make a negative comment, we will remove any reference to particular staff members.

CHANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN HOSTELS
