Gute Lage, nur etwa 15 Minuten Spaziergang vom Echo Point und damit den Three Sisters entfernt, außerdem guter Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen in den Blue Mountains. Sehr hilfreiches Personal. Herberge sauber und gut in Stand gehalten.

I can go from the station on foot and can also go to a supermarket right now. It was very convenient. I was a little astonished that a bed in the room was the one of the wide size of a bunk bed, but it was no problem. It was inconvenient that there are no hair dryers. There was a terrace, so it was good.
