    You don't need more than 1 day to feel like you're part of the family! The staff is super nice and genuinely helpful. Atmosphere: 10/10. Beds, rooms, bathrooms and all common spaces such as kitchen or living room are clean and tidy. You will find everything you need within a 5 minutes walk. I'd say that amazing staff and nice people who stay here (good vibes attraction spot) make Blue Parrot one of the best hostels I've been to. Thanks to the team, miss you already!

    Blue Parrot was amazing! I’ve genuinely never stayed in such a clean hostel, where there’s such a culture of guests keeping the communal areas clean too. The staff were beyond friendly, and there was a really nice atmosphere. I loved the cute lounge with blankets and open fire, and the film nights. The location was great too, far enough out of the centre to not feel completely swarmed by tourists, but close enough to walk in if you wished. Would definitely stay again - thank you!

    It’s a smaller and more quiet hostel. Really chill but if you want to party it’s not the hostel for you because of the area it’s in, which is surrounded by apartments that have an early curfew. But good facilities and chill and a nice location!

    Great staff, and nice atmosphere, only downside is lots of long term people which have seemed to have taken over a little.

    ok not great, would pick another spot next time. Location isn’t near the subway or easy public transport for a traveler. Nice staff, decent minimal accommodations. Mostly college kids drinking goon and watching movies, not a crowd looking to go explore at all.
