4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Having stayed in my fair share of hostels I have to say that Bounce rates very highly on the scale, however given the slightly higher price of a bed here than other places then I hoped that would be the case, and it was. The place is kept immaculately clean which is nice, and the 8 bed dorm I stayed... More

We thought we would try staying here for a couple of nights for a few extra dollars because the place gets such amazing reviews and the location is great and we were very disappointed. The lady working at the desk was incredibly rude from the start and didn't tell us a thing about the hostel and acted like we were... More

It was my first experience in a hostel and I can say that I've started very good. It's very organized and the services are great. It's right in front of Central Station so is very well located and easy to get there from the airport. Everyday there's a new thing going on and the staff is very welcoming.

If I could put this hostel in every place along the coast of Australia, I would be a very happy girl. The staff are all very friendly and made me welcome from the start. The facilities are amazing. You have to have a room card to access everywhere - making it really safe. Lockers in all the rooms. Plugs inside... More

I stayed at Bounce when I visited Sydney in May. The staff and people were amazing and I couldn't have had a better stay. Bounce was the cleanest hostel I stayed at while traveling and there was always something going on. I would recommend to anyone looking to have a great time. There was also a brilliant lad named Conor... More

I stayed at Bounce Hostel with a couple of friends for the weekend and we had such an awesome time meeting new people and exploring Sydney! The hostel is very clean and tidy and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooftop is a really cool place to hang out and the movie room is perfect for some downtime.... More

Stayed at Bounce with a friend for a total of 8 nights! 4 nights in a female dorm and 4 in a mixed dorm. We loved our female dorm as it came with a en suite which is just what girls need! Both rooms were very clean and loved that you have a plug socket in your locker so you... More

I must start by providing this caveat: I am not a fan of hostels, and thus I try not to stay in one when I can. However, there being 4 of us, the options were limited - we had to stay together, and we could have plumped (far too much) for a serviced apartment or go to Bounce. And I... More

Bounce was a special place with amazing people that work their and stayed there. The staff was extremely friendly right from the start Conor, Hilary, and Liz were welcoming and made me feel like I had been there for weeks. Almost every night there were some sort of activity planned for the guests to experience the nightlife. During the day... More
