    Had a terrific stay at Blue Parrot. Good location, beds are comfortable if a little short for a taller bloke. Courtyard area is a great bonus for a city based hostel. Generally good vibes, lots of workers staying long term but everyone is super friendly. Good links to the rest of Sydney via KX. Had a proper blast on Oz day here.

    This hostel wasn't the worst place I ever stayed, but the rooms felt cramped with 10 beds in a small space. The kitchen area was clean and the common areas were nice. They have a PS3 in the TV room. Some of the lockers in the room didn't close properly.

    I only stayed a night due to a flight stopover, but the place was just what I needed for one night. The locks on the lockers don’t take hefty locks like mine was so I couldn’t lock anything away but I felt safe enough to leave my stuff unlocked. The layout was a bit odd so I think affected the atmosphere but in general had a really nice time and the full timers there are great.

    Enjoyed my stay here overall - friendly and helpful staff who always seemed to be working hard to keep the place clean, and a comfy communal living room and nice outdoor space. The kitchen is tiny compared to other hostels and the room got pretty hot and stuffy at night, but most importantly PLEASE fix the lock on room 6 - it was always hit and miss whether you’d be able to get in or not, I had to get up so many times to let people and vice versa - not ideal late at night!

    A small chill hostel (or at least it was when I was there but it was only half full) . I appreciated the relaxed atmosphere and the staff were nice.

    It was a nice hostel in a good location! There did seem to be quite a few rules, had some of our food thrown out a few times for silly reasons. Staff were nice, I did find that it was often crowded with the kitchen being so small. But overall it wasn’t bad

    No wifi, no toilet paper, no soap in bathrooms. I got told I’d get evicted (at midnight in a city I didn’t know and didn’t have anywhere else to go) for asking the staff if I’d done anything to upset her as she was really intimidating towards me. which made me feel really unsafe when I was there. Ended up crying in the bathroom cause I was so scared. I never got an apology from the staff for being told I’d get evicted over a bowl. I wouldn’t recommend it.
