Bounce is an amazing hostel! The view from the roof is as amazing as it looks in the photos and totally justifies staying there. There is a dedicated events crew who organise parties, trips to all the local bars and food/drink events. There is something different every night and it's a great way to meet people from the hostel. Go here, it's awesome!!


Very nice stay. Awesome staff, prefect location. Absolutely recommended


Nice hostel directly across from the train station. Easy to get public transport or a small walk to most things. Very secure-most doors are key access. Standard hostel, would recommend.


Bounce is amazing!! Great facilities, loads of social events and everyone is very friendly. The staff are so helpful, especially Amanda!!!


What I liked about Bounce was how close it was to the Central Station! It was a street hop away. The travel desk also helped me book last-minute tour to the Blue Mountains/Featherdale Wild Life Park package (highly recommended because we got to touch the koalas and feed the kangaroos, then after drove over to the Blue Mountains to hike). If you're staying less than a week, I suggest not getting the 7-day subway station pass and instead use the refill card (Opal?). I will stay here again!


Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. So clean great facilities MASSIVE rooms unbelievable view from the roof terrace - just a great hostel.


You can see why this place is rated so highly. They have thought of everything a backpacker could want. individual reading lights for each bed. Lockable cupboards for your bags that have power points in them so you can charge your Phone behind a locked door. Their kitchen is fantastic, heaps of space. There is a nice balcony area where you can chat with other travellers. They do however close the balcony after 11pm or so. They have a t.v. room full of beanbags for relaxing. Good place.


The best location in Sydney as it next to Central station. Facilities is cleans and neat facilities as I beleive it good to go with the price i paid for. Staff is friendly and people in this hostel is great too.


I expected more fun and people who wants to enjoy night life. In my room 3 of them went to sleep at 9Pm and rest or didn't know english or don't like fun at all. Too quiet. everything else very good.

Awesome place. Great facilities & nice big rooms. Would definitely recommend to anyone.


Was very impressed with the cleanliness and security of this hostel. Just needed to crash for the night before flying out the next day after a big trip up the East coast. Extremely convenient location right across from Central Station. The staff I spoke with were very polite and helpful in giving directions and advice for getting to where I needed to go. Was a great hostel experience before the long trek home.

Good location, nice people, clean room. That's basically all you need!


Central location just a short distance from Sydney CBD. Very cleanly kept with good kitchen space on the top floor with a open air roof terrace to hang out and drink. Social atmosphere with friendly staff who do social bar nights and arrange events! Extended my stay for two weeks so Bounce did something right to keep me there! See you again in the summer!!
