This place is like the home away from home that you never had. You walk in and instantly feel at home... there's a great warmth about the place. Ross, the owner, seems to be the number 1 authority on all things in the blue mountain. You walk in, he gives you a map, tells you the best treks to go on, and you see so much more than you would have if you'd wasted your money on an organised tour.
There's a fire burning every night in the living room, and another one outside. Its great to sit by the fire outside in the evenings with a beer getting to know everyone. I think everyone i met checked in for 1 or 2 nights, and then extended their stay. There's something magical about this place. Oh and I forgot to mention, it was possibly the best night's sleep i've had in a bunk bed since I started travelling!
