There are a wide number of accommodation options up in the Blue Mountains. However the YHA Katoomba would rate as one of Australia's best hostels for its excellent facilities catering to a wide range of travellers - from the very budget minded to those who like to splurge a little. Here there are centrally heated dorms, as well as double rooms complete with ensuit and a marine ply writing desk. I could have moved in for good!
Unique Quality: Large well equiped kitchen, Art Deco lounge area with stage, internet and garden terrace
Directions: Centre of town
I stayed a night in the YHA -- my first ever sojourn in a YHA and I must say that I was suitably impressed! It was really clean and superbly well-maintained.
I took a twin room with ensuite toilet facilities and was real pleased with the standard of the cleanliness and the basic comforts that the room provided. There was a standing heater in the room as well as in the bathroom which was a nice touch especially when it was cold in the morning.
I highly recommend this establishment.
The dinner I had at their dining hall was also real good -- an assortment of barbequed meats and salad. :)
I'd definitely recommend this place!
