Nice, clean and comfortable hostel. Really loved the roof top terrace amazing views and also a huge lounge and kitchen area. Such a great atmosphere to chill/ pre drink etc. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only down sides were the roof top area closes at 11 and there's nowhere else to go. So after that you either have... More

Great Staff, my friend booked the hostel for the wrong day and the staff hooked us up. Once they figured out what happened they upgraded us to a suit for that night and then moved us into a dorm for the second. Very clean rooms with lockers, and amazingly clean bathrooms / showers. The roof top terrace was awesome, and... More

This hostel is amazing!! I was in a room of 6 and the rooms are very big, everyone has a locker with two power supplies inside. It was very clean, the staff very friendly and everything is good organised. I loved the rooftop because it was so cosy and easy to meet new people. I highly recommend this hostel to... More

Clean and friendly, more expensive. Bounce is very well located, next to trainstation. The hostel all over is very clean. Toilets are cleaned twice or 3x a day. The dorm is big, the big locker has seperate power stations. the mat was firm. The terrace is good for socialising, the kitchen is clean and all things are sorted. The staff... More

I was expecting so much more. I am very much aware that sometimes its just about finding a bed for the night but this was an exception and we have planned our trip several weeks in advance. Rooms were large, and both pillows and sheets were provided. Always a good start! I was rather let down by the lack of... More

Huge and clean rooms. You have got your personal armchair(inside you can recharge phone) and you need a padlock. Bed very confortable with linen and blanket. Big kitchen and very well organized. There is no wifi and you have to pay for internet. Everywhere they have wifi.... i don t know why they don t have. People need it!

Good place, excellent location, great view at the rooftop, clean rooms, bathrooms and lobby, great ambient, nice and super friendly staff. The only problem is that you need to pay extra to use WiFi! It should be included on the price,otherwise it just feels wrong. Paying for WiFi in a hostel feels almost like a ripoff.

Bounce was our first stop in Sydney! And no other hostel lived up to it! The staff were so friendly and helpful! The rooms were gorgeous, clean, comfortable and airy. The kitchen was top class. The roof top terrace was unbelievable! Couldn't fault it at all, I would recommend booking in to Bounce to anyone travelling to Sydney! Great location... More

I came to bounce by myself and never wanted to leave! Everyone is so welcoming and friendly and the facilities are incredible. I would recommend it to anyone, as it is accommodating to all, however especially for travelers that are on their own!

I had long trip back to Australia and had to stay one night in Sydney before the next flight. so I stay at Bounce cause it's nice, clean and secure, friendly staffs. it's easy to go around Sydney too. so next time if I go to Sydney I will stay there again.
