Had some amazing times at bounce, love the place.

Bounce definitely is an award winning hostel for a reason. Everything about my stay at Bounce was satisfying. It's very safe and secure, which is a very important aspect for me personally. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful whenever I needed assistance. The facilities were outstanding and the place was spotlessly clean. It's also in a perfect location! I am so happy I made the decision to stay at Bounce, and if I return to Sudney I will definitely be staying here again!

A bit on the pricey side, but if you want a great and comfortable hostel, you can't do better. Nice beds, large lockers with two plugs inside, reading lamp, clean bathrooms, nice kitchen and rooftop and nice people. It is a bit weird to need a security card to get in the bathrooms and at least 1/2 hour free Internet per day would be appreciated at this price.

2 showers per floor of this hostel (which houses 160 guests). That's not enough frankly. Location wise, Bounce benefits a lot, British tourists really avail of it's proximity to a few of the local clubs selling cheap booze. Makes for a boozy atmosphere, and a bit of a mucky kitchen to be honest. Staff are nice. Wifi, isn't fabulous (it's Australia) but at least it's available. Again, Bounce's rating and people's overall experience is probably shaped greatly by it's convenient Central location.

Second stay at Bounce in one trip to Australia... That's got to say something about the place. The staff are incredible - really attentive and great fun! Bounce is more like a family than just a hostel! As soon as I'm back in Sydney, I'll 100% be going back to Bounce!

Bounce was amazing! Right across the street from Central Station so you can get pretty much anywhere you want to go very easily. Very clean, with large lockers in the room (with outlets inside!)... all you need is your own lock! Staff was very helpful, especially when I asked about night life... they actually had tickets to an event in the city that we got for free just for staying there (a $20 value per person) and they were quick to recommend things to do in the area! LOVED my stay!!!

A good place for backpackers with limited budget and willing to meet friends. The only thing is the location which is far from most of the places of interest in Sydney, i.e., Opera House, Harbour Bridge, The Rocks, etc.

I have stayed in a lot of hostels of Sydney, but Bounce is just the best. The staff is really nice and I had a great time there.

The hostel is very clean and the kitchen is really big I can always find somewhere to cook. The wifi plays up in certain parts of the building and is very expensive. The nights out with the staff are really good! Especially trademark Tuesdays! The staff are really friendly, kosta who works at bounce took us out on a few nights, he's really friendly and talks to everyone and has a good laugh with us all. Kosta also helped me during the day with some helpful information about trips and days out in

I enjoyed my stay here. Staff was great and helpful. Dorm rooms were spacious and it is very close to the train station. I would definitely stay here again.

This is definitely the most overrated hostel I've ever stayed in. I think the only reason for the high ratings must be due to the apparent party vibe of the hostel. If you're like me, visiting Sydney mainly for the sights of the city rather than spending your time partying every night, look somewhere else! I experienced drunk people returning to the room every night (not quietly!), vomiting in the shower, and laying flat out wasted on the bathroom floor. Staff are OK, but some a bit arrogant.

+great location!! +super clean!! +/- staff was friendly except from a couple of people which didn't seem to be keep on their job and they've given you the feeling that you're not that welcome *it was quiet noisy over the first three nights on the first floor.i decided to add another night and i've got a room on the third floor which was awesome! nothing to complain about though cause you're right next to central station! how ever... if you need a place to stay in sydney BOUNCE ;)

Great location, decent services and a friendly cooperative staff. A good value for money except that internet services were not included in the deal which was kind of a tick-off.

It was one of the best hostel i ever stayed. Staffs are lovely, the room is huge and also with a huge locker for yourself. Its clearly worth a stay :)

Friendly staff, and they organized regular weekly events to get the guests involved with each other. Long walk to downtown, but right across from Central Station for train/bus. It was a bit annoying having to use a security card to get into the bathroom, but I guess better too secure than not secure enough. Large kitchen (but no oven!) next to the top floor lounge, which also included an outdoor section: great place to relax and talk with other guests.

I loved my stay at Bounce! The staff is nice, dorms and bathrooms clean and the rooftop terrace is an excellent place to meet new people. I'm travelling alone, but making new friends here was not a problem. Would definately recommend this hostel when in Sydney!
