Was very impressed with the cleanliness and security of this hostel. Just needed to crash for the night before flying out the next day after a big trip up the East coast. Extremely convenient location right across from Central Station. The staff I spoke with were very polite and helpful in giving directions and advice for getting to where I needed to go. Was a great hostel experience before the long trek home.

Central location just a short distance from Sydney CBD. Very cleanly kept with good kitchen space on the top floor with a open air roof terrace to hang out and drink. Social atmosphere with friendly staff who do social bar nights and arrange events! Extended my stay for two weeks so Bounce did something right to keep me there! See you again in the summer!!

Was amazed at the hotel-like service in this hostel. We had an ensuite bathroom in our room and the rooms were cleaned every day, which was pleasantly surprising. Overall, super clean place. The only biggest downside was that there's no free WiFi - you have to pay for WiFi.

I loved this hostel. Was soo clean and the rooms where very big which is unusual in a hostel. Every bed had its own locker too with a plug socket. So I could charge my phone securely and keep my things tidy. Every floor has its own area to either chill out watch TV or go on computers. The staff are great and put on lots of activities for everyone to get involved in. Has sooooo much fun here and would definitely come back here soon.

RIght beside the train station, loads of room in the lockers (a 65L bag plus daypack and ukulele all fitted with no issue). Plugs are inside lockers keeping your things extra secure. Great kitchen and seating area, had absolutely no issue with anything here. Stayed here twice (the second time I caught the first airport train - if you need to do this this is the perfect place to stay). Really liked it, would stay again.

I loved it. Great place to meet people and have a drink on the 4the floor outside area. Staff are all really welcoming and friendly. Really clean hostel, loved the kitchen, and the beds are comfy. Only thing i would say negative is that you cant open the windows so the rooms are a bit stuffy when the AC isnt on. But overall, if you want somewhere to stay in sydney- bounce is the one!!

Very nice, clean and modern hostel. Has an amazing kitchen and outdoor area on the 4th floor. Staff are very friendly and nice. Never had an issue with noise, everyone was respectful and the hostel made sure everyone respected the rules. I would stay here again as there was little to complain about. Only issue are the bunk beds which are metal framed and move around a lot while sleeping.

Great hostel, super social and an awesome rooftop to hangout! Events are a lot of fun and the hostel is very clean and well-organized. Best hostel I've stayed at in Australia for sure!

I appreciated every moment staying at Bounce. The only issue that matters was that every single thing costs me a lot. From laundries (4 for washers, extra 4 for driers, and I made a mistake inserting 4 coin wrongly and couldn't get'em back even after explaining to reception) to Internet. (Sorry, I'm from Korea, the country of IT geeks and the fastest Internet connection. Free wi-fi is available everywhere in Korea, even on bus and subway.) Wi-Fi fee was way too expensive here considering it's Oz
