    AMAZING stay at Bounce :) Great location, clean and well kept, free breakfast (even includes pancakes), nice pool area and super friendly staff who even helped me out with my travel plans with some discounts! The dorm rooms are really spacious with great air con and en suite bathrooms. The on site bar was really good value (even after happy hour!!) and has a free pool table. Perfect mix of chilled but sociable atmosphere and met some really cool people there. Will definately stay again! Thanks

    Bounce was the best hostel! Great vibe with happy hour drinks. People were all super friendly! The beds were really comfy especially as I’m quite tall they also gave you a doona (rare to see) and you had and roll out big cage under the bottom bunk to store all your stuff plus a locker. The kitchen was also great they even had ovens. Location was central to everything. Would defs stay here again.

    Loved the place and the staff. The only thing we were upset about was that the fact that they said the bar closes it at 11 but it would close earlier than that.

    The facilities here are great, and the place is kept very clean! Location is also great - very central and close to everything. The only thing that was missing was the atmosphere, but this was due to COVID and lack of travellers, so not a fault of the hostel! Would stay again :)

    Nice place, great location near town. Rooms were clean and comfy, reception was helpful and the bar area was great but the vibe was very cliquey so found it a bit harder to socialise.

    Very Good

    The kitchen was not well equipped at all. One morning my friends ate their cereal out a saucepan. There’s literally 4 plates and 3 bowls floating about. “Free breakfast” was just a tray of various spreads for toast but no bread? And porridge oats. Kinda weird. People who stayed there were nice tho…
