Property Information:

This hostel is recommended by Lonely Planet, Trip Advisor and the Rough Guide.

**We are a genuine Youth Hostel and only accept travellers aged 18-35 years old**

We are a small friendly hostel known for our social atmosphere and warm welcoming staff.

Being a small hostel we offer personal service where you can easily meet other travellers, especially if you're travelling solo.

Blue Parrot is family owned and run by sisters Effie & Sasha, with their team they create a fun vibe winning several awards for best best atmosphere and staff.

Located on Macleay Street, the cosmopolitan hub of inner Sydney, we are surrounded by the trendy cafes, bars and restaurants that Potts Point is known for.
Kings Cross' vibrant nightlife is close by, yet far enough away to have a good night's sleep. Walk to the City Centre, Botanic Gardens, the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and all of Sydney's attractions.

We offer free Internet and WiFi, which is a big bonus since most hostels charge for it.
Facilities include leather-lounge, 60'' cable TV, DVD, in-House Movies, Computers, PlayStation, Wii, and probably the best feature the awesome outdoor courtyard, great for socialising.

    Typical average hostel. No frills, you get what you pay for. The staff was really friendly and helpful though!
