Larger hostel in Katoomba. Has a variety of rooms from 12 bunk (which most rooms are very large so you're not 6 inches from the next bunk) to private rooms with a tv. Staff is awesome!! Shoutouts to Stacy/Wendy/Brett for taking care of me!!

Beautiful scenery and trails. If you skip Scenic World and hit the trails you can escape the crowds. The birding is amazing.
