Overall, good hostel. Beds were a little small and a thin pillow. Staff was helpful and in a good location.

Bounce was my first try at flashpacking when I needed a break from a youth-oriented "party hostel". Some things were very good: Security (bring a padlock!), location, cleanliness. Other things were a little disappointing: WiFi for 5$ per day, not enough electrical sockets in the room (or I didn't find them).

One of the best places I've stayed, so clean and spacious. Also loads of spaces to chill. There was quite a party vibe but I wasn't into that and still felt comfortable so I think it's good for all. It's right next to central station which is great cos that's how you get everywhere

Got a 4 bed private to stay for a work function. Included bathroom was always kept clean. Really happy to stay there. So close to central station it's not funny. They have secure luggage storage which is actually amazing. Well done!

More like a hotel, than a hostel. If you are a single traveller and looking to make friends I wouldn't recommend staying here. The events that I was told about seemed to be just staff members and I didn't feel welcome. Cleanliness and reception staff are faultless.

Solid clean hostel to stay at for a few nights. Only 4 stops from the airport which is nice, clean and the staff are more than helpful.

Excellent facilities, clean, and the terrace is great fun! The area is very central, and it is a close walk to the city centre, but it looked a bit dodgy after certain hours. The hostel is great, though.

Bounce is an amazing hostel! The view from the roof is as amazing as it looks in the photos and totally justifies staying there. There is a dedicated events crew who organise parties, trips to all the local bars and food/drink events. There is something different every night and it's a great way to meet people from the hostel. Go here, it's awesome!!

Nice hostel directly across from the train station. Easy to get public transport or a small walk to most things. Very secure-most doors are key access. Standard hostel, would recommend.

What I liked about Bounce was how close it was to the Central Station! It was a street hop away. The travel desk also helped me book last-minute tour to the Blue Mountains/Featherdale Wild Life Park package (highly recommended because we got to touch the koalas and feed the kangaroos, then after drove over to the Blue Mountains to hike). If you're staying less than a week, I suggest not getting the 7-day subway station pass and instead use the refill card (Opal?). I will stay here again!

Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. So clean great facilities MASSIVE rooms unbelievable view from the roof terrace - just a great hostel.

You can see why this place is rated so highly. They have thought of everything a backpacker could want. individual reading lights for each bed. Lockable cupboards for your bags that have power points in them so you can charge your Phone behind a locked door. Their kitchen is fantastic, heaps of space. There is a nice balcony area where you can chat with other travellers. They do however close the balcony after 11pm or so. They have a t.v. room full of beanbags for relaxing. Good place.

I expected more fun and people who wants to enjoy night life. In my room 3 of them went to sleep at 9Pm and rest or didn't know english or don't like fun at all. Too quiet. everything else very good.
