    I enjoyed every minute of my stay at Bounce. I cannot fault anything, the staff were so friendly and helpful and really made us feel welcome. We stayed in a 10 bed dorm and it was very spacious and clean. It did not feel at all overcrowded and the beds were extremely comfortable. The best hostel beds we have slept in for sure. The Hostel amenities were brilliant, the kitchen was well kept and the free breakfast was delicious. I would highly recommend this hostel to anybody staying in Cairns.

    Bounce is quite possibly the best hostel I have stayed in, in the whole of Australia. The Atmosphere is fantastic. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and the hostel itself is very clean. It’s very close to the night life, yet not too close if you want a quiet night in. The bar prices are very good value for money. I would 100% stay again.

    Staff were amazing, the bar was lively but I could still relax during the day. Facilities were clean and the kitchen for once had enough space for my food and enough stuff too cook with.

    Staff was great—super helpful and welcoming! Could not have asked for a better location—it was a short walk to the esplanade and the marina and there was a grocery store near by too. If I could have stayed longer I would have! Great bar/pool/common area to relax!

    This hostel was in a great location and super close to the boardwalk and town. They have a great covered communal space that has a bar and is great for meeting people. They also had outlets next to each bed (even the top bunk- which was amazing). The bathroom could have been cleaner but I would stay here again. This hostel was great for meeting people and had a young (less than 30 something) crowd. Would stay here again!

    I stayed at Bounce for five nights, and I loved it. The atmosphere is excellent for young travelers traveling alone or with friends. The staff is more than willing to help, and they put on various engaging activities throughout the week. The rooms are well kept, and they do a great job of preparing the beds after guests leave. I booked two tours through the hostel, and the staff went above and beyond to help me find the perfect ones for me! I would recommend bounce to anyone traveling to Cairns

    Very Good

    Was a good hotel, very social and with a cheap happy hour. Had a few issues, firstly with housekeeping when my toiletries went missing, and then with the night manager when some random person came into our room at 3am drunk. These two issues means that my overall score is lowered, but other than that the rooms were nice, the free breakfast was a great bonus and I mostly enjoyed my stay at bounce.

    The common room and kitchen were great, fantastic atmosphere, beds were comfy and the location is perfect - close to everything. However, the staff could have performed better, as I had to change my own sheets on the first day, cause they were really dirty and there is absolutely no warm water in the showers.

    Booked here for 7 nights but only stayed for 2 nights. Overall the facilities are good with the pool and feels modern and up to date. Although the kitchen was dirty and looked like it had not been cleaned. Staff were great on check in, the housekeeping staff let the side down, with finding hairs on pillows and sheets on the beds. The couple having s** in the room and the man using my towel did also not help. Overall it was an ok experience but would not stay here if you want a good sleep.
