This is the first place I stayed in Sydney and I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else. This place attracts all sorts of wonderful lovely people, who will make your stay unforgettable. It is definitely a home away from home. Also excellent location (really easy to get into the centre or to the beach), facilities, cleanliness, day trips and... More

Where to start... This hostel is just amazing, I had the best time here and was so sad to leave, if I'm ever in Sydney I would go straight back to Blue Parrot. The people who work there are so helpful and want to make it a great place to stay. They care about the hostel and people. It's quite... More

Stayed here at the Blue parrot at two different times and each time I had a fantastic time. The staff really knows their stuff and can help you plan out all of your trips and activities while finding you pretty good deals. The atmosphere at the hostel is very relaxed and it even feels like a family. They sometimes even... More

Had a great stay here! The hostel is well maintained, clean and everyone is friendly so it was easy to meet others. The staff are like no other, always offer to help and offer you anything you might need. A tip- I booked on the blue parrot website and got some discounts when I arrived which was a nice bonus.

Where to begin! This wonderful family run business is like a home away from home. Its very easy to get sucked in to this place with most people extending and returning. This hostel is more of a home than hostel with the guests and friendly staff quick to invite you into family. The two sisters Sasha and Effie who own... More

Stayed here for 5 nights on my way down the East Coast and it was one of the best places I stayed in during my two months in Australia. Essentially a converted Victorian-esque house, it had an awesome homely feel to it, with lovely staff and a really chilled-out atmosphere that felt like being back at university, but with strangers...

We booked this hostel for a 5 nights stay because of its convenient location. However, it is one of the worst accommodation which we have been. Cons: - Bedbugs !! - Smelly toilets - Filthy kitchen with dishes unwashed all the time - wifi that logs you out every 15 mins - main gate card access that isn't stable The... More

Normally I would stay only 2 weeks at the Blue Parrot but I had extended for 2 weeks more!! People are very nice, friendly and when you are alone, it's very easy to meet other people who are in the same situation. If you need any information, you just have to ask to the reception to have an answer. The... More
