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.

    The location was excellent, right of the center station, very convenient. The staff was extremely helpful and patient. We loved the terrace and kitchen on the top level to hang out, eat, or make dinner.
