As far as backpacker hotels go this is definitely one of the better ones. I stayed in an 8 bed female dorm and was really happy with it. There was loads of room, we each had a light at our own bed, we each had a huge locker that comfortably fits a big suitcase/backpack and there are power-points inside the lockers for charging electrical items securely. The beds were very comfortable and the bunks don't squeak (yet!). The ladies shared bathroom was mostly clean, which is good considering it is constantly used. The upstairs balcony beside the kitchen-diner is fantastic, with lots of comfortable seating areas and a nice view of the city lights, and again was usually very clean despite lots of use. The biggest plus for me is the location, right beside central station so easy access to the airport and most destinations in the city, and only a 20min walk to the city centre, or hop on the free city circle bus outside the station. There are also lots of great bars, cafes and restaurant in nearby Surry Hills. The artwork throughout is bright and quirky and the staff seemed friendly. We even all got free yummy cake for Bounce's first birthday!! There are always drawbacks with staying at a backpackers but this is inevitable and simply due the constant use and high volume and turnover of guests. Bounce feels clean, fresh and new, and it will take a lot of hard work to keep it this way and not slip in the way of other older, grotty hotels. I stayed for a week and was really happy with everything, I have already recommended Bounce to friends for when they need somewhere reliable to stay in Sydney.
