    Nice place to stay a night or two in Katoomba if you are with friends and have a small budget. Close to the train station and groceries. The commun room is nice as well as the kitchen. A bad point would be the bathroom !More

    Big kitchen with plenty of cooking space and appliances. Huge common room with free pool table too! Very relaxed atmosphere and a lovely fire. Big rooms with decent sized lockers - not cramped at all! Would definitely recommend.
