I watched this hotel being built and I can honestly say that it is first class. Your stay will be the best that Sydney has to offer and you are so close to everything, you do not have to travel far to see the best places. Very highly recommended to any traveler or people who would love a great night... More

I booked a four bed female dorm with private bathroom, which was incredible for the price. A lovely, clean hostel in an excellent location. Exactly outside central station so very easy to travel around the city, even at night. A very sociable hostel for those that want that with loads going on but also quiet and private enough if you...

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...

I stayed here for a week. This was a great place to stay in Sydney. Quiet, clean, friendly. Nice chill out zone with Netflix. About a 20 min walk to Circular Key. Central station across the road if you need to get to the airport. Definitely would stay again.

Great location w.r.t central station, Bus Terminal and CBD and abso. clean rooms. The view from room is good and their terrace sit-out is what charms you most. You are allowed to bring your booze here. Spectacular morning and evening views of the city over a beer and smoke. Met good travel mates, so would say that people who stay... More

This hostel is very modern with a great vibe everyone says hello and is willing to help they do themed nights for food so hot dogs are a dollar on Thursdays and they are good quality.

Generally a really nice hostel, but the man at the front desk was quite rude on numerous occasions for no reason which really left a sour note, totally unprofessional and really not on - the building and facilities are pretty good however If you have nowhere better then this isn't awful

I really DO recommend staying here! There's a good reason why I decided to stay in a hotel within walking proximity to Central Station. I knew I wanted to be located near the city and where I have easy access to the trains going to airport and Blue Mountains. Despite it being a little overpriced for my budget, I felt... More

The rooms and bathrooms are clean, and it's fun to hang out in the communal areas. My only word of caution is about shared rooms. It was a little hard to fall asleep with people coming in and out frequently (I had a 6-person room). I'd recommend staying in a 4-bed share or a private room.

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.
