We stay here every time we're in Sydney. Great value for money; for a pretty standard hostel price you get new rooms and bathrooms, nice staff, good kitchen facilities, plenty of locker space, and I have enjoyed the other guests. The building itself is really cool - bold colours, artwork, feels very modern, and the highlight is definitely the rooftop... More

We stayed at Bounce just about a year ago, and it has not changed. Just as good, and the people are just as friendly. Now that we know the area better, we were able to find a decent grocery store (Coles) about 15 min walk away for a very nice breakfast that we cooked upon the 4th floor for the... More

Booked this hostel for being voted as the best in Sydney. Paid a price of $41/night for 8 mixed dorms. Not entirely 'hostel-ly' price but heck pay something good and expect something better, right? Overall, it's a very clean hostel except the smells of shoes in the room (ie. lack of fresh air ventilation). Kudos to the staff for cleaning... More

I had the most amazing time staying at bounce. The rooms are really big, plenty of space for everyones luggage. Bf lockers that have two power points inside which is great so you can leave your phone etc on charge without worrying. The rooms are cleaned everyday and are spotless. The rooftop terrace is beautiful, amazing views over sydney. Very... More

This hostel is very centrally located (adjacent to central train station), clean and well kept. Its marginally more expensive than other hostels in Sydney. There is a large communal area for food and several places to chill out and socialise, including a roof top area. The staff were very friendly and helpful and they have nights out organised. The only... More

Jess is awesome!! I wanted to pay for my friends first night in Oz and she was staying at Bounce so I emailed Bounce to organise payment as a surprise. Jess was so helpful, even opening a PayPal account so my payment could be retrieved!!! Above and beyond the call of duty! Jess was so lovely and genuinely wanted to... More

At first I was a little reluctant to book a room here as I had never stayed in a hostel before but after actually checking in, I immediately knew my stay here was going to be quite good. The staff are so helpful & always provide service with a smile, which is always appreciated. And the rooms were clean and... More

This hotel is very central to transport, Chinatown, and central Sydney. The room was clean, good for overnight and short stay in Sydney. Only problems were no hanging space or bath mat. There was community meal area and fridge.

I was hesitant about staying in dorm accommodation but I just needed a cheap bed for the night near Central station, and this couldn't be closer. Guests were a mix of ages so I didn't feel out of place. The bunk bed in the 8-bed mixed dorm turned out to be really comfy and very clean. There was a roof... More
