This was my third time staying at Bounce, can't keep away from this place! The place is impeccably clean; kitchen is well equipped with everything you need; staff are friendly, fun and helpful. After having stayed at average hostels all over the world it's a relief coming to Bounce and feel like a princess. Location is good to, right by the cool area surry hills and the train station just outside the door. Got nothing negative to say about this hostel. Highly, highly recommended!!!

beds are very comfortable and wide enough to have comfort sleep. kitchen was very useful, i used it every night it has lots of utensils and plates, seasonings. and we cannot access anywhere if we dont have card, and it makes me feel safe but irritated as well when i forgot to bring it. i had to call my friend. anyway it was best hostel i've ever had.

One of the best hostels i've ever been to! friendly staff, really clean rooms, and full of guys that want to meet each other so as soon as you get on the terrace they start talking to you and you never have to think of where to go at night! Nightclubs are at 20/25 minutes walk, and if you get a taxi it will cost you like 10$, so if you catch one with friends is cheap! The kitchen has everything you need, but if you don't want to cook you can go to chinatown that is 5 minutes walk from the hostel

I had a great time staying at Bounce, they arrange lots of joiner nights and the hostel in general is very sociable. The fourth floor has lots of space for socialising and an awesome rooftop area so it's good for single travellers looking to make friends. It's also right next to central station so well located to get anywhere you could ever want to go in Sydney. Can't fault it!

Best hostel ever, really clean and secure, staff competent and nice, only thing is little bit to expensive! But i can`t complain, ops maybe they can give more than 30 minutes of wifi when you check in (1 hour at least).

Location is ok, just around the corner from central station. Free Bus is near, so easy for getting to wharf. Clean, nice staff, big lockers, big kitchen. Unfortunately no place in the fridge, maybe they should limit the space per person somehow or have a single one only for staff and long term stay. Big plus is that you can store your bags after check out if you have a late bus/plane. Don't get the No Free Wifi thing. free for members at least would be nice...

Good Hostel next to central station where the airport train arrives into. Easy to get around the city from. Rooms have excellent lockers with plugs inside to charge gadgets securely. Reception staff were helpful and the standard of cleanliness was a touch above everywhere else we have stayed.

This is an excellent hostel, staff is great and there's lots of things going on (especially in the evening). The facilities are great as well and the building seems to be pretty modern and well maintained. The obvious downside: this place is expensive. Pay for the laundry, pay for towel rental, pay for the WiFi; I can see why some people had no choice but to switch hostels. Still a great hostel overall, but if you're on a tight budget, you might want to stay somewhere else.

Stayed here for two nights in the mixed dorm. Great location next to central station, so was very easy to get to from the airport. Very clean, lots of space with big lockers which also had plugs inside. Great common area/kitchen upstairs. Only downside is internet is expensive but you get a free 30 mins when you arrive. Will definitely stay again when I go back to Sydney.

I enjoy staying at Bounce. Staff were very friendly and helped me to book a flight and tour. Overall the bed is clean and so is the shower facilities. But Wifi is extra charge and there is some train nosie at night as it is located right off the train staton. I would recommend this place.

Hostel is impressively clean. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The location across the street from the train station is great. It is a little expensive but it is clean, the rooms are large and the beds are comfortable.

I would definitely recommend Bounce Sydney to anyone looking for either cheaper accommodations or who likes to mingle with other travelers. The staff was very nice and the people who stayed there also seemed pretty nice. It was fun seeing and meeting the diverse sets of individuals from around the world.

Originally I planned on staying at a few different hostels in Sydney but instantly fell in love with this place. The staff are so welcoming and friendly and the rooms are clean modern and spacious even the 8 person dorm I stayed in never felt over crowded and luckily enough only had other great travellers who I'm sure I'll be friends with for the year to come. It's slightly more expensive than other hostels but it's definitely worth the extra money and I'll recommend it to all I meet!

Location is good. But it is too far from supermarket. Also I would expect to have free wifi.

I love bounce. So clean, people are nice, rooms are massive and the kitchen is huge and really well equipped. Met some great people and the staff are really friendly as well. Beds are comfy and it is really central, 10-15min walk pretty much anywhere that you will want to go like the opera house. I don't like paying for wifi but I appreciate that mostly you do in Australia and there is a Gloria jeans coffee house literally 5mins down the road. Would stay again and again

OK location, very close to central station but a bit far from most attractions (if choosing to walk). Very secure and lockers available in the room. Nice large kitchen, which some hostels are lacking.
