I booked to stay for 1 week initially and ended up living there on and off for 8 months! What makes the Blue Parrot so special is the people and the atmosphere. It's a small, homely hostel with chilled, comfortable living spaces so you get to know people really quickly which is so important when you're travelling alone. The location is superb- there's a different awesome night out every day of the week in vibrant Kings Cross and the hostel managers make sure everyone feels welcome, gets involved and has a great time. It's not a totally crazy, party hostel so you can def get some sleep before early morning trips or work. It is a hostel though, so sure sometimes drunk people come in late or snore but if you're a single traveller arriving in Sydney you won't find a better place to get connected and get immersed in the Sydney lifestyle. Plus the internet is free which is a massive bonus. I loved it, had an amazing Aussie experience and would absolutely stay there again.
