Would recommend staying here - kitchen is kept very clean and staff always working. The free breakfast is great and the bar is cheap. A large number of the residents were staff so it wasn’t quite as social as we expected but it was still a great place to stay. Pool is nice too. Only downside is the TV room is downstairs and smells of mould so wasn’t the nicest place to chill out when you want to escape the music.

Great stay at Bounce, only stayed around a week! Kitchen was great, finally a hostel with an oven which is amazing and the free breakfast was a nice touch as well. I was in a room with people staying long term which meant it was so messy and the bathroom was dirty as housekeeping couldn’t clean properly around their stuff but not reflective of the rest of the hostel which was kept very clean and tidy. Atmosphere was great if you know people. A lot of long term people here which all seemed to know each other
