5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My friend and I stayed at Bounce for 4 nights and wished it could have been longer! A great hostel to compliment a great city. The staff were very helpful and seemed to go out of their way to make life easier for guests, the bed was probably the most comfortable bed I've slept in in a hostel and each... More

I loved this place. It was clean, warm, welcoming, generally friendly and in a convenient location for the station. They do enforce strict time rules in the TV area, which is definitely welcomed for those short sleeps for early starts. Stay here!!

Bounce is the best hostel I've stayed at in Australia! Really big and clean, almost feels like a hotel. Big spacious rooms, and 2 power outlets in locker!! And you could get hot and really cold water from the tab! A big plus! They have a tv lounge, and a big tv in the kitchen area. Plus they have a... More

I gave Bounce a couple of tries based on recommendations from friends and its location, but it was disappointing both times. The biggest problem is poor sleep quality, which is, granted, partially out of the hostel's control. (Bathrooms are clean; bunk beds are the average squeaky kind where you can feel every toss and turn of the person in the... More

Stayed here for two nights in end of February. This backpacker has wonderful facilities and is in a great location. Very comfortable beds, spacious, lots of lounges, great kitchen. Only criticism of the facilities is that there are very few bathrooms and showers - I've had to go to a different floor several times to find an available shower or... More

I went to Bounce on my own and was really impressed with the hostel as a whole. The place is kept very clean, the staff are so friendly from reception to the rooftop and the organized nights out are really good fun with games beginning on the roof helping everyone get to know each other - I won't go into...

Although it's a little bit expensive, the location and cleanliness is perfect. In front of the train station you can go everywhere you want very quickly and also you can come straight from the airport in 15 minutes by train! The staff is very nice as well. It works 24 hours, so anytime you need, you have someone to help... More

I'm gonna be honest - I took Bounce coz of its roof terrace (besides all the good ratings). I must say I was not disappointed - the location, the service, clean big rooms - all is there. But somehow I could not get rid of the feeling that all is too much organized, too much IKEA style furbished and simply... More
