Franksy - thank you for your vote as the best hostel! We kind of think so too, but some of other 80 YHA's around Australia might want to disagree :-) Hope to see you again soon.
Thoughtfully renovated and immaculately presented. A calm and aesthetically pleasing hostel with both warmth in the air and an ambience of warmth. The staff are welcoming and relaxed, a breath of fresh air from the urban grind.

As the other reviewers have said - yes, there are car parks - one large and one smaller and plenty of spots. Then there is street parking as well. It is very safe as the Katoomba Police station is right opposite the hostel! There is no charge for car parking.
Look forward to seeing you at the hostel.
