Great Location but not a great area being on the other side of the Train Station. I stayed at a couple of other Hostels nearby too on my 02 weeks of stay in Sydney & though it has overall good facilities, it lacks the vibe. Enjoyed my stay but may be will skip the next time around.

I stayed in an 8 bed dorm for 5 nights and this is without doubt the best hostel i stayed in during a month of travel in Australia. It was clean, spacious and the staff were happy to provide you with plenty of information about Sydney. The location is perfect - right next to the station so it is easy... More

I stayed here for 5 nights, and like most reviews - clean and spacious even though i stayed in a 8-shared ensuite female dorm. If you look into their website, they mentioned ensuite bathroom (which was what i've booked), but it turned out to be a bathroom just OUTSIDE your dorm but right beside where only you and your dorm-mates...

Yes, that's right. Rooms are big and clean, shared spaces are nice as well. People working there are very cool and always helpful. Location is good as well, just across the street from central station. The only bad thing I can say about it is that internet is not cheap but it is the same all around Sydney so.. it's... More

This hostel was amazing. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. CJ was awesome and provides advice on places to see and things to do around Sydney! VERY clean and such a nice and social environment. Would definitely recommend staying here... Worth every penny 😊

We stayed at bounce hostel three nights. When we looked at the Internet the place seemed very clean and well-kept. And had very good reviews. We arrived and had a room on the 1st floor. All the beds where full apart from the last two for us, we didn't realise that you had to put the bed linen on yourself.... More

The best hostel I've ever stayed in, we were actually sad to leave. It feels like a hotel in terms of quality but still has the relaxed hostel feel. The rooftop terrace and kitchen are both amazing, kitchen is clean and well stocked with everything you need and also has plenty of fridge space. We had a double room with... More

Absolutely perfect location. Different social events such as nights out, movie night, and BBQs. Knowledgeable staff gave us great recommendations of things to do and places to see. Met other travelers whom I ended up traveling different parts of Australia with. I've been to over 40 hostels around the world, and this is a little more expensive than most, but... More
