Blue Parrot Backpackers

The hostel staff were awesome and so accommodating for everyone staying at the hostel, and even some of the old residents who returned for quiz night.

It was great that the staff ensured we had something to do each night and took us out in Kings Cross for a great $12 steak at a local pub The Sugarmill. We stuck around after dinner as the meal was was followed by pub quiz night which we almost won, so very close.

The crew then asked who wanted to return to the hostel and who wanted to kick on and experience partying in Kings Cross and took us for several rounds of karaoke at O’Malley’s Hotel. This included many terrible songs, some rock anthems and one or two rounds of shots.

It’s always a shame when you leave something in your room and when I got home I discovered this and emailed the hostel asap and Effie was kind enough to find the items I left in the locker in my room. They were also able to store them for a week until my friend could collect them.

I can’t say enough nice things about the location and the staff, they certainly deserve your consideration if you are thinking of staying in the Cross.
