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

They were happy to provide you with information about Sydney along with the free maps at the receptionist. The room: modern, good size & spacious enough, nice and clean bedroom & bathroom, good lighting ambience, comfortable beds & sheets. The room... More

This hostel is freakin cool. It is partially due to the awesome people I met, but this hostel is great. The cleanest I have EVER been at, huge lockers for each bed with power outlets and lamps inside them. Good clean bathrooms with sufficient showers. Best part is the upstairs kitchen and indoor/outdoor rooftop lounge! the worst part is that... More

I stayed here with a bunch of friends and did the group booking thing to get our own dorm room. When we checked in it was around midnight and we were all super tired. Check-in took aaaages. I think one of the guys on reception may have been a trainee or something. Not a huge deal usually but considering it... More
