We love this Hostel!

It gets our thumbs up for consistently high guest reviews.

Hostelworld says

Bounce is next to Central Station, connecting travellers to the light rail and several buses as well as almost every train line in Sydney. Hostelworld reviewers say they would recommend this hostel to 'anyone else looking for a good affordable hostel to stay in'. One guest told us that 'what is different in Bounce is the great atmosphere between staff, the people you meet and [that] you really feel [at] home'. The hostel includes a large kitchen and an onsite bar and restaurant; we particularly like that there's power sockets inside each locker.

Latest Review

" Stayed here for a week whilst I was in Sydney and have no complains whatsoever. Really good vibes in the hostel and the upstairs terrace/outside area is very good. Large lockers in dorms with chargers are handy no complains with cleanliness of dorms and bathrooms. I also stayed in a private room for one night which was spotless and nice to get an it if luxury for one night before I headed up the east coast. Overall a really good hostel which I would recommend!
