Blue Parrot We are Sydney's best-loved hostel and are consistently top rated.
Location Centrally located on Macleay Street in cosmopolitan Potts Point; the chic and glamorous part of inner Sydney. A great location to start and finish your stay in Sydney! We are a 15 minute walk to the City Centre and a 20 minute walk by water's edge through the Botanic Gardens to the Opera House & Harbour Bridge - one of the most scenic walks in Sydney. You can also catch the train from our nearest Kings Cross train station to the City Centre (one stop) and Bondi (2 stops).
The Area This family run hostel is safe and clean surrounded by cafes, shops, supermarkets, post office & banks. It's close to the best nightlife, all the trendy bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs yet far enough to have a good night's sleep.
Inside Peek Sisters Effie & Sasha manage the hostel creating a fun & friendly atmosphere. They will let you know the best things to do and see in and around Sydney. Our private courtyard garden is a peaceful space to chill out, socialise with fellow travellers, swing in a hammock under the tall trees, have a BBQ, or you can hang in the cosy lounge room with big plasma TV, a library and PCs with free internet!
Bottom Line If you like smaller hostels with a fun atmosphere, offering a real backpacking experience where you get to meet everybody and have a great time then this is the place to come, especially if you are travelling solo.
