The Katoomba YHA is like a home away from home. The common areas are inviting and comfortable. The location is perfect for exploring the beautiful Blue Mountains. We always stay in an ensuite room, which is very good value for money. The staff are the best! They go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. Our only quibbles were: 1. Our mattress was sooooo hard it was like trying to sleep on concrete! and 2. The number of other 'guests' who slammed their doors after midnight. Poor form people!

Fantastic location and old world charm. Appreciated the effort the YHA staff went to to ensure a very positive and worthwhile stay after the cancellation of the Blue Mts Music Festival was called off. Had a great weekend. Many thanks to Dave & YHA staff.

Great hostel ruined by one young drunk who switched on lights at past midnight and made noise. Bendable directional led lights and bunk curtains would improve the dorms, otherwise a superb hostel.

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

If there have been any major changes such as major hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
