I stayed at Bounce Sydney for 4 nights in January 2016. Having previously stayed here in 2013 I was worried that the standards would have slipped but they have not at all! This is a really great Hostel which is modern and clean with all the necessary amenities, including individual power sockets in lockers. It is well located next door... More

I came to Australia on my own, and I've had visited many hostels and this one is the best one. Awesome location, clean Bathrooms&Showers, usually tidy shared dorms, clean and big kitchen, and the most important thing, which makes the big difference against the other hostels, it's the great atmosphere. Bounce got a rooftop where you will always meet nice... More

Ok; maybe I am a bit older and was traveling alone so looking for a cheap alternative to a costly hotel in Sydney. This is very much a hostel for teens or slightly older looking for fun or to hook up. No towels (extra charge); no soap in the showers (bring your own soap, shampoo etc). Rooms are very small;...

I was really impressed with Bounce Sydney. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the hostel was very clean. The bathrooms were modern with hot powerful showers and were cleaned on a regular basis. The bedrooms had large lockers (large enough for a big backpack) to secure your belongings, and you could only gain access to your room with... More
