Bounce was honestly the best hostel ever. It's just like having a massive apartment with all of your mates. Quality! They are hosting something pretty much every night to get people involved. Mark the manager is great also...I have to add that 😂. I spent two weeks there and it already felt like home. Am definitely going to miss bounce! It's also opposite central station so you can literally get anywhere in the city from there. Amazing! Would recommend it to anyone. Don't book anywhere else!! ❤️

Hands down, this is the best hostel I've ever stayed in! The staff was super friendly, and went above and beyond to help with anything. Upon check in, they outlined places to check out on a city map, and gave some amazing recommendations for restaurants and bars. The rooms were very spacious and clean. The rooftop deck was an awesome place to hang out and meet people. Excellent hostel!

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! The staff is super friendly and I've made friends with a ton of them while I've been here. The balcony is brilliant and has an excellent view of the city, perfect to spend a lazy day on out in the sun or have a few drinks with all the travelers in the evening! They organize events almost every night that are a ton of fun that show you some cool places in the city and get some good deals.

Right next to the train station, could not be easier for train travel and trains into the city. Very clean. Nice lounges and a roof deck. Seems pretty new. Staff was nice.

Really glad I stayed here during the start and end of my trip. Can't praise it enough. It's a bit more expensive than other hostels, but you get what you pay for. It's clean, you get a massive locker with electricity sockets inside, there are hundreds of films to watch in the comfy tv room. The staff were friendly, really helpful and dealt with an unfortunate situation perfectly. The location is excellent. Thanks guys :)

overall very managed hostel. Staffs are great, security is good, location is good & clean. It would be better is the wifi is included as well as breakfast. However, a lot ppl there were on working holiday visa looking for a job, Didn't meet alot of travellers.

Close to Central station and free bus. Great staff, clean, big lockers with power plugs inside. Nice common room, roof top terrace, tv room, kitchen is ok, fridges for long term stayers would be great as little space.

A great hostel with an ideal location opposite Central Station and only a 15 minute walk to the Harbour. The staff we're friendly and were willing to suggest places to see/visit/eat. It is a more relaxed atmosphere with a balacony to relax on with views of the city. We were a group of 3 travelling together, they couldn't fit us in a dorm together so gave us a free upgrade to a private room! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back there again - you do get what you pay for.

Great location if needing to get to the train station or party. The majority of staff are very friendly and welcoming. The travelers tend to keep a bit to themselves though because of the size of the hostel. You get what you pay for though.

Have been to over 100 hostels in the past 2 years and this is by far the best. The lounge and rooftop terrace is so amazing for meeting people and hanging out, the kitchen is HUGE and has absolutely everything you need, the rooms (super spacious) and toilets are always clean, the hostel has events nights w cheap food ($2 burger Sundays, $1 Aussie dogs!, free Aussie wine), they provide free tickets to Sydney's hottest bars on the weekends...this is a haven for backpackers. Definitely recommend.

Customer service is similar to a 4-5 star hotel, for a fraction of the price.
