Really really cool place to stay with a great location right across from Central station. It is expensive as far as hostels go, but you get what you pay for. Super clean, staff was excellent! Really no complaints. Sydney is a great city and compared to the prices of other places, I'd recommend staying here if your passing through for... More

The hostel has excellent facilities, the kitchen and bathrooms were so clean. They have a big rooftop area which is nice to sit out on, the view of the sunset from here is great! The hostel is within walking distance of everything, if you're arriving off the greyhound bus it is literally 2 mins from the station to hostel. The... More

Bounce has great facilities and is in a good location. However, the atmosphere is a bit hit and miss. Senior staff favour some guests over others who have clearly been there for a long while as they are very familiar with them. I have not experienced this elsewhere and it made us feel put out and uncomfortable. There are several... More

I had an awesome stay with them - so friendly! A nice big kitchen and a big roof top terrace. Lots of daily / nightly activities - and the staff were wonderful in making an effort to connect with people. The only downside is the slowest elevator known to man, and the fact that there are only 2 shower stalls... More

It is not as good as the overall rating showed. The room is small. Not sufficient bathroom, and also lead to dirty bathroom. And some other things that contrast with the reviews and rating. What is good is the location but still not the best choice comparing in the same price range in Sydney.

There is literally nothing I can fault at bounce! The staff are so friendly and happy to help and the 24hr reception is a real bonus. Always clean rooms, bathrooms and kitchen and there's the lounge and outside area are really cool to chill out and meet other travellers. Really great atmosphere and good nights out organised by the hostel... More

Bounce is located in the central location of Sydney, situated right next to Central Stn (10 mins train ride from the airport). Great staff and I loved how reception was open 24 hours. Good facilities - rooftop kitchen, lounge with movies and clean toilets. I stayed in a 4 person female dorm with en suite bathroom just outside our room.... More

Nice, clean and comfortable hostel. Really loved the roof top terrace amazing views and also a huge lounge and kitchen area. Such a great atmosphere to chill/ pre drink etc. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only down sides were the roof top area closes at 11 and there's nowhere else to go. So after that you either have... More

Great Staff, my friend booked the hostel for the wrong day and the staff hooked us up. Once they figured out what happened they upgraded us to a suit for that night and then moved us into a dorm for the second. Very clean rooms with lockers, and amazingly clean bathrooms / showers. The roof top terrace was awesome, and... More

This hostel is amazing!! I was in a room of 6 and the rooms are very big, everyone has a locker with two power supplies inside. It was very clean, the staff very friendly and everything is good organised. I loved the rooftop because it was so cosy and easy to meet new people. I highly recommend this hostel to... More
