Blue Parrot Backpackers

Hostel in Kings Cross & Potts Point
Image by Hostelworld

This colourful hostel is the antithesis of some of the backpacker barns around the Cross, offering a warm, personal experience that feels more like a share-house (but much cleaner!). There's a great back courtyard and high-ceilinged dorms with good bunks and mattresses. Netflix, PlayStation, free SIM cards and a BBQ add points. For 18- to 35-year-olds only.

Information from Hostelworld


Recommended by TripAdvisor and Lonely Planet

Located in Sydney’s famous neighbourhood of Potts Point (comparable to London’s Soho & NYC’s East Village) offering vibrant nightlife, cool cafes, restaurants, bars and a short walk to Sydney’s most popular sights - the Royal Botanic Gardens, Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

Also close to the most convenient train line connecting you from Bondi all the way to the Blue Mountains.

Blue Parrot is one of Sydney’s most social hostels, popular with solo travellers due to its relaxed homely atmosphere and its ideal smaller size (50 guests) make it impossible not to meet people here!

Sisters Effie & Sasha who own the Blue Parrot will warmly welcome you, make you feel right at home and give you the best local tips! They can also arrange exciting day trips to the Blue Mountains, Surf lessons, Skydiving and more.

Offering free high-speed Wi-Fi internet, Cable TV and Netflix, secure key card system, personal lockers, clean kitchen, lounge area with fireplace, guest computers, beds with new orthopaedic mattresses, and an awesome courtyard with hammocks and BBQ facilities.
