4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a great hostel for people looking for a very young/social place to stay. My biggest complaint about the hostel is that they did not have free internet, which seems a bit ridiculous for a place claiming to be so young oriented, especially considering how much the rooms are.

The hostel is perfectly located 2 minute walk from Central Station. It's quite a big hostel. Our room was huge (8 bed girl dorm) and everything was clean and tidy. There wasn't really the family feel in this hostel that you had in all of the others. Would definitely recommend though.

Started my travels here! We opted for our own room with private bathroom. It would bet many hotels! The room was spotless with linen and towels changed daily. The room also had its own flat screen not that we spent much time there. The pub next door did good meal/drink deals for backpackers. The hostel is in a good location... More

Positives - Comfortable bed, clean linen and clean room - Great staff who were helpful and highly accommodating - The terrace and 4th floor is awesome, didn't use the kitchen but looked like a great place to cook. Negatives - WiFi is not included, should be included like every hostel I've visited previously - Having a lock on every door... More

I stayed in Bounce for five nights, in a four bed in July 2015, and can't really find many faults at all! I had a four bed dorm, with a comfy bed and nice sheets. The dorms all have individual lockers, with charging points inside, which can easily accommodate all sizes of suitcases/backpacks/bags. I only really used the locker for... More

I have stayed in a lot of hostels but this is by far the most up market. The lockers contain charge points for your phone so you can plug it in, lock it and go out happy in he knowledge that it will not be stolen. There is a great terrace where people chill out and have a drink in... More

I stayed 3 nights in Bounce hostel in a mixed 8-bed dormitory. I was used to go to the YHA Central but i found out that Bounce has better ratings and was slightly cheaper (36 AUD per night versus 40 AUD). So i thought it worthed a try. All in all, both are great but YHA Central has more shared... More

I stayed in Bounce hostel for 4 days whilst visiting Sydney and it was such a great hostel. The location is perfect right next to Central station. It's a short walk from the greyhound drop off point. It is also a short walk to George St and the main shopping area/china town. Also 3/4 stops from the Domestic and international... More
