Blue Parrot Backpackers
We are a small intimate hostel known for our great atmosphere, around the corner from Sydney's best nightlife!
**We are a youth hostel and only accept travellers aged 18-35 years old.**
Avoid those massive, impersonal hotel-style hostels and stay with us in a small hostel offering personal service where you can easily meet other travelers, especially if you're traveling solo. Ideal for female travelers since it is safe, secure and clean. Our guests frequently tell us they don't want to leave because of our 'friendly and homely atmosphere...almost like you're staying at a friend's house'.
Blue Parrot is a family owned hostel, sisters Effie & Sasha with their team create a fun vibe winning several awards for Best Atmosphere & Best Staff - just been voted amongst the top 4 hostels in Australia Feb. 2013.
We offer free Internet and Wi-Fi, which is a big bonus since most hostels charge for it.
Our hostel is well-located on stylish Macleay Street, around the corner from Kings Cross' vibrant nightlife yet far enough away to have a good night's sleep. From here you can walk to the city center, the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and all of Sydney's attractions.
Our facilities include use of the Wii Game Station, DVD hard drive so you can upload movies to your laptop and a big-screen plasma TV with cable and DVDs. There's also free use of personal security lockers in each room, plus an awesome outdoor courtyard - great for socialising.
This hostel is recommended by Lonely Planet, Tripadvisor, Lets Go and the Rough Guide.
