I enjoyed my stay here. Staff was great and helpful. Dorm rooms were spacious and it is very close to the train station. I would definitely stay here again.

This is definitely the most overrated hostel I've ever stayed in. I think the only reason for the high ratings must be due to the apparent party vibe of the hostel. If you're like me, visiting Sydney mainly for the sights of the city rather than spending your time partying every night, look somewhere else! I experienced drunk people returning to the room every night (not quietly!), vomiting in the shower, and laying flat out wasted on the bathroom floor. Staff are OK, but some a bit arrogant.

+great location!! +super clean!! +/- staff was friendly except from a couple of people which didn't seem to be keep on their job and they've given you the feeling that you're not that welcome *it was quiet noisy over the first three nights on the first floor.i decided to add another night and i've got a room on the third floor which was awesome! nothing to complain about though cause you're right next to central station! how ever... if you need a place to stay in sydney BOUNCE ;)

Great location, decent services and a friendly cooperative staff. A good value for money except that internet services were not included in the deal which was kind of a tick-off.

Friendly staff, and they organized regular weekly events to get the guests involved with each other. Long walk to downtown, but right across from Central Station for train/bus. It was a bit annoying having to use a security card to get into the bathroom, but I guess better too secure than not secure enough. Large kitchen (but no oven!) next to the top floor lounge, which also included an outdoor section: great place to relax and talk with other guests.

I loved my stay at Bounce! The staff is nice, dorms and bathrooms clean and the rooftop terrace is an excellent place to meet new people. I'm travelling alone, but making new friends here was not a problem. Would definately recommend this hostel when in Sydney!

Bounce is awesome. The group of people living there is great, you will always have a great night even just staying in. The have events almost every night. If not the staff who lived there and the long therm peps made every night fun! Kitchen is always clean and you don't have to wait for a sink. Rooftop and common room is crowded and your never al

I think they could really improve the internet. I paid for 2 days but once you put the code in, you have to keep re-entering it because it will automatically log you out if you don't use it for a couple minutes. Thy should have a system where you put in the code and it stays logged on the entire time you have paid for. I did like this hostel tho and the staff was great. Very clean and loved the rooftop bar. Great location right by central station!!

Bounce is probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Super super clean and safe. Plus the location was spot on. I stayed here at the beginning of my trip to Sydney and ended up going back! Upon arrival they even give you 30 minutes free WiFi use. Bonus! Would definitely recommend this hostel. Loved it.

This hostel is one of the best I have stayed in. The location is superb and allows easy connectivity to popular places via the trains. A very large locker is provided for each visitors and the locker size is definitely more than enough to store large backpacks and any other accessories. Rooms are cleaned daily by their own in house housekeeping. Security is top notch via an easy to use card access system. Only downside of the hostel would be the shower facilities as it is inadequate.

It was very comfortable, there is a TV in the room. Toilet attached to the room was clean and large enough. Room was cramped for 4 people though. Staff was pretty helpful with our enquiries.

Loved staying here. Was about a 15 min walk to the main part of town however was across from the train station and free bus. The staff were very helpfull and nice. There was a drinking/eating area on the roof that over looked the city. Also heaps of computers to use. (no wait time). The hostel was immaculately clean and was not worried about having my bag out at all.
