We stayed here for a week and had a great stay, the rooms and facilities are clean, the staff are friendly and welcoming and there are events organised for most nights of the week. The hostel is well maintained and there are 24 hour staff that ensure you have a great time but also that people are not disturbed if... More

Clean place, friendly & helpful staff. Located in center of city and easy access to bus and central station. There is a train that takes you to the airport in less than 15 mins. Walking distance to Coles for groceries, 5 mins to George street. Take train to Bondi beach or bus to Coogee beach. I had work in UNSW... More

Friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. It is secure, clean and nicely designed. It was surprisingly comfortable and quiet (except for Sat night due to the pubs nearby) even though I was in a shared female hostel. I slept very well for the two nights that I was there. The rooftop lounge and kitchen is well-equipped. One morning, I was at... More

Look no further if you need a place to stay in Sydney. This place has it all. They plan events almost every night including food and bars. Event info can be found on their website. There's a movie room and nice large upstairs kitchen as well. I wouldn't say the upstairs balcony was anything spectacular, but I bet it could... More

Bounce was one of the cleanest and most modern hostels I've stayed in throughout my travels through Thailand and Australia. Good rooftop lounge and secure rooms. The fact that it is so big meant it didn't have such a friendly and welcoming vibe that I experienced in other places. There are lots of people who are staying here long term... More

The location of Bounce Hostel is bang opposite Central Station in Sydney and thereby making it in walking distance to Market City, George Street and Elizabeth Street. The central location notwithstanding, the environ is so very quiet and calm, which makes the stay relaxing and making you feel wanting to get to the room after a long day of roaming... More

The hostel is good, with an awesome kitchen and a cool common area. However, I've stayed in some hostels nearly as good as Bounce paying less. Also, if you want to use the internet there's an extra charge for it. The location is good due to its proximity to the Central Station, but it's not very close to supermarkets and... More

This place is awesome! I met the most fantastic people (including my partner) and made life long friends. Thus is a place you go to find people to travel. We met a group of people we then shared an apartment with. The staff are great, the room clean and the rooftop a great place to meet people while taking in... More

This hostel is ideal if you are visiting Sydney on a budget. We rented a double room with bathroom and it had everything we could ask for, including a TV. If you really don't want to splash out loads of money on an expensive hotel then stay here. It is central enough so you can walk everywhere or you can... More
