Reviews (120 guests have reviewed this hostel)
Hawkesbury Heights is a beautiful, secluded place that is worth the visit. The view is stunning and the eco-friendly building is terrific. Being in the middle of nowhere (not really, there are dwellings around) without a car when the nearest town center is 4km away was refreshingly relaxing. The bus from Springwood goes scarcely but that was not an issue, we enjoy walking. Carolyn is lovely and her tip for Blue Gum Swamp trail was amazing! We enjoyed our stay and would love to come back!

It was the perfect place for our group’s writing retreat. There were plenty of places to sit and write and it had such a beautiful calm atmosphere. I would highly recommend it.

We travelled by public transport. That is almost non existing. We wanted to walk but there were no tours or hikes we could find. You really are in the middle of nowhere without a car.

The best possible place to chill out. Only small by YH standards but every comfort and exceptional views of the Hawkesbury Plains. There area myriad of places to visit from this base. All the tourist spots of the Blue Mountains are within eay reach and below are Richmond and Windsor heritage towns.

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:

UNSUBSTANTIATED OR INCORRECT CLAIMS

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

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