My first time travelling by myself and i could not have picked a friendlier and more welcoming hostel! It's the best place to meet people and there's a great social atmosphere facilitated by the awesome staff! The sisters who run the hostel really make the difference. Location was excellent and the free wifi was reliable and fast. If i could, i would live here for my entire life! Stay at the Blue Parrot you won't regret it!

Nice little hostel located within walking distance of the city centre (If you cant be bothered walking as it can be a bit of a trek if your doing it regularly, there is a train station nearby). The facilities in general were very good, with a good communal area both inside and out and a good kitchen but a slight downside was often having to wait for the bathroom and showers due to there only being a few available. Overall though, we enjoyed our stay!


Loved the hostel. It was very clean, there were enough power points, internet was included and the staff was lovely. Would recommend it to everyone to stay there!


Nothing more to say that hasn't already been said below.


Very nice place to stay in central Sydney!

Lovey staff and perfect location.


Really friendly and sociable atmosphere. Quite a few people working in Australia staying there but they're all really friendly and able to give you good recommendations on what to do while in Sydney. The location is also great, only a stones throw away from the botanical gardens which are great for a wander down to the waterfront.


After staying in a multitude of hostels throughout Australia and Europe I feel my opinion on accommodation quality is relatively well founded. Staying at the Blue Parrot has been an immensely enjoyable experience; from the moment I arrived through the door I was welcomed into a clean, comfortable environment by caring and considerate staff members and made to feel immediately at home. Due to the small nature of the hostel it is easy to make friends and everyone is v helpful. Highly recommended.
