Originally I only planned on staying a few nights at bounce but after the initial few days I extended my stay by another 5 nights the staff and other travellers were all so nice and friendly I really felt right at home. The communal kitchen and socialising areas really brought people together and in made some really good friends in... More

I stayed there with my family, we booked a 3 bed dorm with private bathroom. It was nice, clean and quiet The best thing in the hostel is the terrace with amazing view. Would definitely recommend this place.

Very nice hostel. Very close to central station and the cbd. I was in an 8 bed dorm, very spacious. Good bed and bedding. Private lockers with inbuilt power sockets. Cool rooftop area and common room. Only negatives were expensive cost, and a bit too commercial. Staff could have been more welcoming.

Stayed at Bounce over the weekend in early August and had a great stay for the weekend. The staff were friendly and loved the atmosphere. Stayed in a triple private room which was awesome. The place was clean with basic facilities, and great for the price. This hostel is literally close to Central station, but a fair walk to the... More

This hostel is conveniently located next to the central station. It is very clean and staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Lockers are provided and are big enough for big backpacks. Even sockets are in the locker. And amazing view from the top of roof terrace. As in every hostel: don't forget your earplugs,... More

Bounce Hostel is massive with approximately 160 beds. With its size comes lots of opportunities to meet new people however it has lost it's "personal touch". Most of the staff were friendly the experience felt rather industrialised. Never the less it was clean and modern. There are multiple places to hang out in the hostel- the lounge which is connected... More

I cannot recommend this hostel enough. Cleanliness is maintained at a high level. The dorms are well appointed and thoughtful. The lockers are big and include power points inside them which means you can charge your devices without fearing theft. The beds are brand new and the sheets are much more luxurious than what one would find at a typical... More

I highly reccomend this hostel to anyone. Travelling alone, with friends or even family - this hostel fits for everyone. It's very quiet, cleaning comes everyday, kitchen was clean and well equiped. And the best view from the roof terrace :) Also the location is very good - walking distance to the most important sights of the city.

Bounce was great! Quite a young crowd and super clean. A great 24 hour reception desk which is super helpful. Amazing roof deck and view of the city with a big kitchen to cook for yourself. No bar or restaurant on site but lots of options nearby. I wish the walls / windows were a bit thicker as it can... More

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
