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, close to Sydney’s best nightlife!

Being a small hostel we offer personal service where you can easily meet other travellers, especially if you're travelling solo. Ideal for female travellers 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 family owned and run by sisters Effie & Sasha, with their team they create a fun vibe winning several awards (we have just won hostel with 'Best Atmosphere & Best Staff in Oceania' for the third year)

Located on stylish Macleay Street, we are surrounded by the alluring 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. From here you can walk to the City Center, Botanic Gardens, the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and all of Sydney's attractions.

We offer free Internet and Wi-Fi, which is a big bonus since most hostels charge for it. Also free use of PlayStation 3 and a Wii Game Station.

There's free use of personal security lockers in each room, plus an awesome outdoor courtyard with hammocks and BBQ, great for socialising.
Facilities include leather-lounge room with big 60' plasma screen TV, computers, Hard Drive with a huge movie library, kitchen and laundry room.

    Had a lot of fun, met a lot of nice people, location and hostel itself was very nice too, even though it may be a bit pricy, it's totally worth it!
