Don't charge for internet. Maybe give a free decent connection and charge for high speed connection. Ask for deposit for towels, but not rental cost. Don't shut all common spaces at midnight. I understand if you close the rooftop, but not the rest. Put more outlests in the common area on 4th floor. Change bunk beds, they squeek like crazy.

Great Hostel. Opposite Central Station so you can easily get around Sydney. Stayed in a Private Double room, was better than some hotels! Even had your own heater/aircon. Would definitely stay there again when I'm in Sydney and would recommend to friends.

I really loved this place. Loved the atmosphear, the staff was really helpful and I've met a lot of new friends. The roof top was one of the best parts with all tha parties and it was nice just to out there.

Bounce was great! The rooftop terrace was such a nice addition. The room was really big and clean. The locking cabinets in the room with outlets were great. The staff was super nice and helpful. I was only there one night but the organized trip to sidebar totally made me feel like part of the community. Its a little pricy but definitely the nicest hostel I have stayed in with the most accessible community.

I booked to stay at bounce for 1 week, but loved it so much I ended up staying for 3. Clean, perfect location, nice rooms and great social area and events. The staff were amazing, so much friendlier than in any other hostel I've been to! In particular Daisy, Caitlin, Andrew, Connor, Kelsi, Dheya were all wonderful and really made an effort to make you feel welcome. All the others were great too! Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in Sydney. Couldn't recommend it more.

One of the best hostel's I've ever stayed in. Very modern, safe feel with brilliant location right next to Central Station. Good comfy tv lounge and rooftop bar and staff were also very helpful, allowing us to use shower facilities after we'd checked out before our flight left. There can't be much better in Sydney!

Location is right next to central station which makes it very easy to get around Sydney. Hostel is very clean and beds are very comfortable. The rooftop deck makes for a nice place to hang out and meet people although one still must go out of your way to do so. The staff was adequate but not memorable. Overall bounce was a great stay and I would stay there again.

Bit pricey but definitely worth it. Modern, very clean hostel loads of space to hang out, tv room with Netflix, roof terrace, huge kitchen and dining area also with sofas and a tv. Rooms very nice didn't like not being able to open any windows though! Staff good apart from one very rude woman! She checked us in I nearly turned round and left! Ideal location for getting on/off greyhound bus and very easy to get to the harbour and the airport on the train- not expensive either! Would recommend.

By far the best hostel I've ever stayed in during my 3 years of backpacking. There's a movie room with Netflix, huge kitchen and the even a huger terrace that overlooks the CBD. Only aim ute away from central station that gets you to the beaches and Greyhound bus stop. Fantastic staff, definitely recommend!

Bounce was great! It was modern and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful only two negatives was the dorm door slams shut every time someone enters or leaves which makes it hard to have a good night sleep. The lockers are huge which is great but they also slam shut (even if you try to do it quietly) could do with seal or something around them.

Great location and facilities. The dorm rooms are good size and secure with huge lockers. Big kitchen with plenty of room to cook. Lovely roof terrace. Didn't find it very friendly tho and there were cliquey groups. The staff seemed to just care about each other. Overall expensive. I left here to go to HQ in kings cross which was way more friendly and welcoming!
