Blue Parrot Backpackers, Sydney, Australia

23rd Jul 2016

The best part about Blue Parrot was definitely the atmosphere and the people, both staff and other hostel guests. Everyone was so friendly, helpful, and welcoming (especially Charly!)! The hostel is not in the very center, but it's pretty close to King's Cross and a very nice walk to the center of the city. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, there were big lockers, and lots of space in the room (their 10 bed dorm is actually a 12-bed size room, so there's extra space).

Globetrotters International, Cairns, Australia

The best part of Globetrotters was the staff - very friendly and helpful! When I accidentally left my jacket at the hostel, Linda easily agreed to put it on the next airport shuttle so I could get it back - thank you! I wish there were more lockers in the rooms and in the kitchens. Some people received a kitchen locker key upon check-in, but that seemed to be random, so there were people who had keys and didn't use them while others needed keys but couldn't have them.

This hostel was clean and pretty close to public transport, had good lockers in the rooms, comfy and warm beds, clean showers, strong wifi, and good kitchen facilities. The staff were super friendly and helpful, including booking airport shuttle for me and letting me borrow the hostel phone to make a local call (yay Patrick!).

The beds were comfy, everything was clean, and the staff was very helpful! One suggestion - privacy curtains around the beds. The bed lights are bright enough to disturb other people, so everyone ended up using their phone flashlights for light to be considerate. Privacy curtains would be very helpful!

Bedrooms were very well laid out - curtains around every bed, personal lights and space next to the mattress for your things, plus enough room to sit up on each bunk bed. Lockers big enough to fit a laptop. Only downside was reception closing relatively early - 10 PM.

The pool and swim-up bar was quite nice - the bar was provide-your-own alcohol, so you could either cheaply purchase alcohol in town or buy a drink from the bar and bring it over to the pool. The hammocks and trampoline were also lots of fun, the lockers for tent-stayers were large enough to store all our belongings, and the showers had good water pressure and water temperature. The only thing missing was a communal kitchen.

The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - definitely the best part of staying here. The building was nice, the room was spacious and clean, and the food in the cafe downstairs was good. The only downside was that it was a bit out of the way.

The hostel was close to the Hauptbanhof, a big plus in terms of getting to the city and traveling to places such as the Olympiapark and Dachau (everything else was walking distance).
