One of the greatest hostels I have ever stayed at! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the hostel was very clean and secure. The top floor of Bounce has an amazing communal area with deck looking over the city and was a great place to socialise and meet other travellers. Bounce is the new standard!

Absolutely fantastic! I only stayed for one night but it was great. The location is central to everything being opposite central station. Even in the larger dorms there is still space and the large lockers mean you've always got somewhere to dump your stuff. As long as you've done your research and know things like you have to hire towels and provide your own lock for the lockers then you won't be disappointed :)

Very clean, modern hostel. Nice, big common area with a large TV, many tables, and a balcony with just as many tables as inside. Key cards must be used for access to elevators, rooms, and bathrooms which boosts security. Lockers have their own plug which is super convenient! Perfect location if you want to be near Central Station for the airport or whatever reason.

This place was the best hostel I stayed at during my recent trip. Nice rooms, friendly staff, great location, and social atmosphere. There is a reason it is rated so well. While not free, even the internet is good. I would stay there again without question.

Super clean, probably the cleanest hostel i've ever stayed in- this comes at a fairly high price though (there is only one bathroom on each floor with 2 showers in it, and these were often closed for cleaning or full). Super expensive but that is Sydney, being used to Europe hostels where wifi is free every where their cost of internet is ridiculous. Great kitchen and movie room but didn't find the staff particularly friendly or inclusive, big group of Brits that would take over a room.

Not much to dislike about this place, the key cards for everything are a lil annoying and maybe an on suite room option would be cool but otherwise everything is a hit. Right next to the station that connects to the airport, little far from opera house but there are not many good hostels with better locations

I have been travelling in Austalia since a year and half now, and Bounce is from far the best hostel I stayed at, staff is awesome and very helpful. Everything is cleaned, there is always a person cleaning the kitchen during the day! They have nice events such as cheap bbq and nights out as well! I recommend this hostel without hesitation.

These guys are awesome! Really nice hostel suitable for everyone in the heart of the city. The staff make a great atmosphere on nights out and everyday especially Theresa and the lovely Matilda, but everyone is eager to help! Come join in at the best hostel in Sydney and I've been at a few.

The stay at Bounce was made wonderful by the staff there. There are always helpful staffs at the reception area to provide advice and attend to your travel needs. The bright smiles and cheerful attitude of employees, M.L. & T.R., never fail to brighten my day.

Had a great time at Bounce! It's the cleanest hostel I've ever been to and in a great location. Special shout out to Kosta, he went the extra mile to make sure we felt welcomed and nights out with him were a blast! ;)

A great hostel in a great location in Sydney with friendly and well educated staff


94%

Clean and nice modern hostel, great bathrooms, a nice kitchen and lounge area on the roof with great views of Sydney and a comfy tv lounge. Location is right next to central station but if you prefer walking over public transit it is a bit of a trek to get to the opera house and waterfront area. Loved the hostel though and would defnintely stay again.

Clean facilities with a fun staff and a great group of guests. Kitchen and Lounge close at midnight. I wish the price was lower and it definitely affected the length of my stay. However, I was very happy with the cleanliness, company, and comfort level.
