Simon Heller thinks…

"Very helpful staff. They always had a smile on their faces and made an effort to know people staying there. The kitchen is well supplied and was kept tidy and clean."

How to get to the hostel from Sydney airports:
Option 1:
Shuttle Bus: At the International Airport you will find the 'Sydney Shuttle Bus' crew at the ''The Meeting Point'' which is in the middle of the arrival hall (next to the car rentals, and opposite the ANZ money exchange) departs every 30 minutes. Just tell the driver to drop you off at the Blue Parrot Backpackers.

At the Domestic Airport you will find the 'Sydney Shuttle Bus' crew inside Terminal 2 arrival hall near baggage belt #5.

We recommend Sydney Shuttle Bus because they give our customers a discounted price of $13 (normal charge is $16-$20). To receive the discounted price of $13 please pay for your ticket once you arrive here at Blue Parrot reception and we will give the ticket to the driver. Operates between 5:30-20:30. Travel time approximately 45 minutes minutes depending on traffic.
Option 2:
Taxi: Take a taxi if you arrive after 20:30 when the shuttle bus stops running. Taxis cost approximately $40 depending on traffic. Travel time aprox 30 minutes.
Option 3:
Train. Catch the train from platform 1 at either Airports to Central Station. At Central Station change to Platform 24 (the Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra Line) for your train to Kings Cross.Take the Darlinghurst Road exit; turn left and go pass the water fountain into Macleay street until you come to the hostel about 5 minutes walk, you will see the blue building on your left. We are at number 87. Cost $17.20 from International and $16.40 from Domestic. Travel time aprox 45 minutes.
