• Fully-equipped kitchen
• Central heating and fireplace
• Laundry (small fee)
• Towels for hire (by charity donation)
• Free WiFi
• Free bag storage
• Free breakfast cereal, tea & coffee

Here is some important information to make sure that we are the right choice for you:


We pride ourselves on being a relaxed and quiet place to stay. Definitely not a party house - this is not the place to stay if you want to stay up late. Our house is a traditional weatherboard home. All guests being considerate of others is therefore essential.

While there is no curfew, noise must be kept to a minimum 10pm - 7am. This includes common areas and your room.

There are no TVs or radios etc on purpose. Streaming music or other content online must also not interrupt other guests.  Please bring ear/headphones.


This is not negotiable on arrival.  We are not set able to accommodate children under 12 years. If you have booked with children, please cancel now.


The office is open 9-11am and 5-8pm.   However self check-in is available during the day. Please come through the side doors and go to the office, where you'll find further instructions.

You MUST make arrangements with us if you think you may not arrive by 8pm or will you not be able to get in, and will forfeit your reservation with no refund.

Please make sure we can contact you on the phone number supplied or via email.

Check out is 10am.


You may store your bags on your day of check in (from 9am) or during the day on your day of check out. This is a free service on a first come first served basis. We take no responsibility for your bags.


We include a simple breakfast in our price: a choice of oats/muesli/cornflakes with milk, tea & instant coffee.

There is a shared kitchen available. There are gas stovetops, oven, microwave oven, rice cooker, pizza and baking trays, and a small Bialetti if you'd like to buy your own ground coffee rather than the free instant.

Salt, pepper, oil, plastic wrap and aluminium foil are also supplied.

The nearest shops are about 5min walk from the station (Coles & Woolworths in Parke St, and Aldi on Waratah St) so you may like to get a few things on your way to us. 


Unless you have booked our ensuite, you will use our large unisex bathroom which is downstairs on the ground floor. Please bring your own towels. We have towels for hire for a gold coin donation to the charity we support.


All bookings made within 48hrs: There will be no refund. As we are a small hostel, it is unlikely we will be able to fill the vacancy. 

Non-Refundable 48hrs+ in advance: Charged on confirmation. However, if you have made a mistake, if you cancel within 24hrs of booking, we will allow it to be refunded. 

Full Rate 48hrs+ in advance: We take payment on confirmation for direct bookings, and at any time and especially for special events and peak periods. You may cancel up to 48hrs prior (9am) to your stay.  After that time there will be no refund. 

How To Get Here..

We are a 6-8min (550m) walk downhill from Katoomba station, in a residential area. The easiest way is to turn left out of the main Katoomba St exit. Walk down and cross over to the other side of Gang Gang St. Continue straight down alongside the Kingsford Smith park. When you get to the intersection of Glenview & Lyne St, cross back over to the other side of the street and continue down Lovel St. We are a few houses down on that side.

If you are driving, there is plenty of on street parking. Either park near corner of York St and walk uphill past two houses, or a bit further up there are also stairs if you park near them and walk downhill past two houses.
