    The best hostel by far on the East Coast. Clean and well facilitated. Shoutout to Markus from the travel desk who helped me book a great intro dive to the Great Barrier Reef. Also someone else helped me download some photos from a tour ( as I did not have a laptop on me)

    Really enjoyed my stay at bounce. I stayed in an all female room and my room never had more than 4 of us in. There’s A LOT of long term residents there so it can be harder to make friends alone but did still manage to. We were given free pizza, chicken wings and wedges and 5 free drinks one night. The free breakfast was amazing and they have an event every night, so great value for money! The staff are super friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying at bounce!

    Very good hostel. Very clean. Free tasty breakfast with freshly made pancakes. Great location 5 min walk from marina. Hostel had good happy hour at bar with reasonable atmosphere, but was still possible to get a good nights sleep for early tours, and was only 1 min walk away from Gilligans if a serious sesh was on the cards. Staff all nice and helpful for booking activities.

    There is a good atmosphere. Free breakfast which was very handy. The people are very cliquey as most people staying actually live there and work nearby so can be a bit hard to get conversations. Stayed at this hostel twice and both times our room stank and was so muggy. There was a leak in the ceiling but overall the hostel was good.

    Very Good

    Very cliquey - almost everyone staying there is a long termer (confirmed by the residents) or a worker for accommodation. Makes it very difficult to meet people as everyone has their groups and they’re not that interested in meeting new people. Had a very strange girl in my room who made me feel very uncomfortable. Did not want to ask to move rooms because she said that she knew all of the staff, so I felt intimidated. Music is constant so no time to really chill. Good location.
