Liked: Just awesome! The Blue Parrot is a REAL hostel with a social atmosphere and cool travellers not like other 'hotel' hostels i have experienced which are lacking character and too big to meet people easily. Comfortable and clean with big rooms and common areas. Convenient location. Loved my stay!

Liked: The girls at the reception are supernice and super helpful. There arent any weird old people staying at

Disliked: Most of the people staying there were there already for a long time...Good for people who want to go out all the time but if you are only in Sydney for some days its not the best place.

Liked: Good central location. Staff are superb and friendly from the moment you set foot in the place. Good common area with loads of programmes to watch and free Internet and wi-fi

Disliked: No reflection on the place itself but it seemed there were a lot of long-termers who weren't very social outside their groups. Felt a little territorial. Some lockers needed fixed and computers could do with being able to read word documents. All fairly minor though.

Liked: Homely feel. Great communal area like the tv room and courtyard. More expensive but worth the extra bucks.
