About Blue Parrot Backpackers

The hostel is recommended by LONELY PLANET, TRIPADVISOR and the ROUGH GUIDE.

WE ARE A YOUTH HOSTEL & ACCEPT ONLY TRAVELLERS AGED 18-35

We are a small friendly hostel known for our social atmosphere and warm welcoming staff, around the corner from Sydney's best nightlife.

Located on stylish Macleay Street, we are surrounded by the alluring cafes, bars and restaurants that Potts Point is known for. Kings Cross' vibrant nightlife is close by, yet far enough away to have a good night's sleep. From here you can walk to the City Center, Botanic Gardens, the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and all of Sydney's attractions.

Being a small hostel we offer personal service where you can easily meet other travelers, especially if you're travelling solo. Ideal for female travelers since it is safe, secure and clean. Our guests frequently tell us they don't want to leave because of our 'friendly and homely atmosphere...almost like you're staying at a friend's house'.

Blue Parrot is family owned and run by sisters Effie & Sasha, with their team they create a fun vibe winning several awards (just been voted hostel with 'Best Staff in Oceania' for the third year)

We offer free Internet and WiFi, which is a big bonus since most hostels charge for it. Also free use of Playstation 3 and a Wii Game Station.

There's free use of personal security lockers in each room, plus an awesome outdoor courtyard with hammocks and BBQ, great for socialising. Facilities include leather-lounge room with big-screen TV, computers, kitchen and laundry room.
