Older building nevertheless very clean with friendly staff. My room and bathroom areas were spotless. A huge fire burning in the communal lounge room much appreciated by all on a very cold snowy weekend. Travellers on a budget this place is ideally situated close to everything of interest. Station and restaurants just a five minute walk along Katoomba St. I will most likely stay again when travelling on my own

I hadn’t expected a backpackers lodge. So I was upset when I arrived. However the place was relatively clean, though the mattresses were hard and springy.

Pleasant lounge areas, clean kitchen, value for money. Please consider installing timer switches on lights in lounge / dining areas. These areas are only used intermittently and the lights were often left on.

The room was a basic single, wardrobe, bedside table and wardrobe and sink. The bed was clean, plenty of pillows, spare blanket in wardrobe if needed and 2 clean towels. Free wifi pass included. Communial bath/showers and toilets, always clean and hot water, all worked fine. there were communial quite reading area and lounge sitting room with tv. Also a communal kitchen where you could make a meal as long as wash-up/clean afterwards, also a dining table area to sit. All in all, the lodge was great, nothing fancy, its an old building but a bit of character, but it was all clean, everything functioned and was perfect for me on my own for a few nights stay. Plus its in the centre of Katoomba close to coffee shops etc. I'm now retired, travel solo, but in my working life have stayed in fancy hotels, motels, resorts etc. The Katoomba Mountain Lodge was perfect for my needs, a bed to sleep, hot showers and toilet facilities all clean. I could have got some stuff from the local supermarket and cooked in the communail kitchen, but I choose to make use of the local cafes, pizza etc. PS. traditional pizza at the Station Bar was great.

Walls are thin, not very sound proof so can heard people walking by our room. Floor board creeked a lot adding to the noise, inside and outside room. Can heard foot steps at night, kids running around, people talking. Didn’t sleep well. Only 1 shower working or open. Shared bathroom, no en-suite. one step from a hostel.

The common lounge room is absolutely welcoming: A nice log-look gas fire, calming original paintings on walls, lovely high view, big-screen TV, sweetly furnished window seats and comfy lounges. The bed in my room was excellent: so comfortable. The kitchen is practical. They need proper mugs. The check-in tour was a little too quick, and nobody knew where the showers were.
