Bounce is definitively the place to stay in Sydney! The rooftop is just amazing, the reception is opened 24hours and the staff is really friendly. There is also a huge kitchen and everything is clean and tidy. Besides the Central Station is so close and it only takes you a short walk to be in the middle of the city. It's also allowed to bring your own alcohol and there are burgers for only 2 dollars every Sunday.

Incredibly central with an awesome kitchen. Very easy to meet people especially if you hang out on the outdoor terrace, but expect some of the staff to get pushy with playing games to promote atmosphere before going out. But great, safe hostel with incredible views and people.

I loved staying at Bounce. It is a very new hostel with great facilities, very clean and they have huge dorms. Would definitely go there again.

Really enjoyed my stay - I liked the daily activities at the hostel planned by the staff and it was easy to meet people as a solo traveler! Only complaint is lack of wifi (which seems to be true everywhere in Sydney).

It is a great hostel, new and very well thought facilities. Staff is friendly while distant, and they organize something every evening. They even knock to every door to ask if you want to go out with other People of the hostel and they brought us to the World Bar at King's Cross where I had a good time, had not to pay entry and got a free drink. You will end up hanging with fellow Backpackers though, Expats (Working&Travellers mainly). Locals go elsewhere. Thanks to Bounce for the great time.

Absolutely the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff goes above and beyond, facilities are impeccable, and as a solo traveller meeting amazing people here has been a breeze. I won't stay anywhere else in Sydney!

Nice hostel with large lockers that can fit your entire backpack if you so desire. Generally clean but the location was much farther away from the CBD than you'd expect as Central station is somewhat far away from the harbour, bridge, the Rocks, etc. easy access via trains though as long as they're running.

Bounce is very conveniently located next to central station which makes it easy to get to and from the airport. The staff were friendly and the other guess were super friendly too. Good size rooms and a great roof terrace where you can bring your own alcohol (a must for any traveller) and great for socialising. They have different deals though out the week for example $2 burgers, you can't go wrong with that!

Please make sure you tell your guests the power outlets are inside the lockers. No one of our room knew that. We were all fighting for the two outlets inside the room.

Awesome staff. Super friendly and helpful. Loved the city maps free tours and cheap food nights. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Kitchen area could have been cleaner. Great location by train station. Great overall value for money. Felt safe ! Would stay again! Just FYI. Crowd is younger, 20 something's mostly but not much of an issue for me. :) thanks bounce for everything!

it's worth paying a little extra to stay in Bounce. It's clean, the lockers are spacious and each have a charging point inside. The staff are friendly and the roof top is a really great place to meet people. I really cant talk this hostel up enough, I loved my stay here!

Had a fabulous stay at Bounce. The place was in an excellent location, the staff were amazing and super friendly and the facilities were spot on. Love the rooftop area and movie areas on the floors, great to get out of your room if you need to. We had a double room with ensuite and it was better than a hotel room. Great work guys.
