Great hostel. Only grip is the internet, it's both slow and you have to buy a new pass everyday. It gets tedious.


More of a holiday feel than a backpackers- that may be a positive or negative depending on your disposition. Very clean. Nice balcony area. Location isn't great for thing immediately round about but very close to central station so can get everywhere easily. Staff are pleasant but some seemed not to know much about the area/Sydney.


Excellent stay. Awesome staff. Great people


The most secure and clean hostel i've stayed in. The location is beyond perfect, so close to central station you can get absolutely everywhere with no hassle -- and chinatown is only ten minutes away which is great when hunting for food. But the Internet is expensive and the staff, except the guy who works in the coffee shop (amazing, friendly guy) are meh. Get in the lift and they avoid eye contact. Also, its cliquey, not good for solo travelers i'm afraid. Would recommend to groups only.


What an amazing hostel. One of the best in Australia. Very clean, big lockers in the rooms. The stuff is very friendly and helpful. 30 min free internet access. Possibility to print something. Nice view from the roof! Every evening you can win a trip.

This is my second stay at Bounce. Great facilities and friendly (good looking) staff. Will be back in December.


The best hostel to stay in when in Sydney. Excellent all rounder, love burger and pizza night. Excellent kitchen and balcony with an amazing view. Lockers in room with electric outlets in the lockers. Comfortable beds and very clean . Internet is pricey but is so fast 25 quid for a weeks worth.Do yourself a favour and just stay here. Brilliant


bouce is really ok, staff is helpful, just internet is kind of expensive


My stay was pretty good, the place is really clean and tidy. It's directly opposite central station so in a good location. No free wifi which is a bit of a negative point and even when you pay for it, it depends where you are whether it stays logged in or not. I found the atmosphere is pretty cliquey and some of the staff don't even speak to you, Ellen (sic) from Leicester however was really cool and would always chat! Overall I had a good stay and would recommend it!
