I booked a four share female dorm for four nights and left after three. Firstly, expensive, with the price I paid and to have to pay for wifi on top of that was almost insulting. Check-in was fairly decent with exception of the fact that they do not show you around at all and you're essentially left to figure out... More

We stayed in a shared room for three nights and liked it very much. The hostel is modern and clean. The rooms were simple and the beds were very comfortable. I liked that there were safes for your personal belongings in the rooms. Unfortunately, the windows couldn't be opened but there was an AC which was working well. The highlight... More

Two couples sharing a room. Cheap and very clean, located in great position next to central station. Lots of enjoyable places close by walking distance for darling habour, capitol theatre. Would stay there again in future.

Would definitely stay here again on my next visit to Sydney. Right next to Central station where all train lines pass by which makes it an excellent location for getting around the city. My favorite is the rooftop and kitchen with floor to ceiling windows--i loved cooking and heaving breakfast there with a nice quiet view of the city and... More

We stayed with our kids aged 12 and 8, in a family room. The rooms are nice clean, though a bit small for 4 people. The common kitchen is well equipped but some food left in the fridges semm very very old...not appealing! Main issue : the noise! Some metro works have just started at the back of the hostel,...

Bounce has a great location, everything from the kitchens to the bathrooms are very clean and modern, and it's great for anyone whether backpacking or on working holiday. It doesn't have much personality, although it has some social events, but that's really nitpicking. They charge for wifi, but have computers available for use. The people at the desk are quite...

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighborhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colorful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighborhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
