Very organized very large hostel. Wifi is not free however. Felt basic and more of a party hostel

Stayed for as long as I could between March and April and enjoyed every moment. I met so many new people. A great social and party hostel (if you want it to be). Lots of events on to get people socialising. The rooftop is so cool! Next to Central station so ideal for exploring Sydney. All the staff were spot on, very friendly and helpful. Great facilities, no free wifi, but easily the best hostel I've stayed at in Sydney. Would stay here again!

Very secure hostel. The staff organize fun social events, and even sometimes offer free alcohol. My biggestcomplaint is that the bed was quite uncomfortable. There is an extra charge for Wi-Fi, but at least it is fast and reliable.

Fun atmosphere at Bounce; definitely catered towards a partying crowd but you can find places to chill here as well. The location is great and very central.

The location was really good and the staff tried to help with everything. We stayed a week and it we lijed it a lot. To meet new people is maybe a bit difficult because it s such a big hostel.

Good hostel and would not mind coming back. One very annoying thing is a guy snoring during the whole stay which was so aggravating...This the hostel cannot control. The hostel should promote activities for people to do together.

No free wifi, especially given the high price (in a not-so-central location). Other than that, nice hostel and staff

The hostel is quite expensive, but it is worth it, as you to stay in an air conditioned huge dorm room with big lockers, and it is super clean, the hostel does something every night for the backpacking crowd so they put the effort in! This is a big hostel, so the only thing I would say is it doesn't have the homely feel that other hostels I have stayed in have, and also they charge extortionate credit card fees!

Loved this hostel, only negative comment I would make is that the wifi isn't free, considering the price you pay this seemed a bit ridiculous.

The rooftop bar is amazing and great to meet new people. Great kitchen. Right next to Central station so easy access from the Airport and the ferry port.
