I love Bounce Sydney. They all really nice. The gave temporary keys for before and after check in time. So that we can keep using the facility before we leave. Nice rooftop, big kitchen and common room area. Everything is clean and nice. Maybe little more bathroom will be better. Other than that it just perfect. Its the opposite of...

This is probably up there with one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. First of all it's in a great location opposite central station. Secondly, it has amazing facilities: Free Wi-Fi that actually functions well, roof top terrace over looking the city, and a very well stocked kitchen. It was also one of the cleanest hostels ever! Staff...

This was my very first Hostel in Australia, and i was happy about having a double room for some down time after my 24h flight from Germany to Sydney. We stayed at a private double room with TV and our own bath. So far, everything was clean, people at reception were nice and everything was the way it was promised...

The hostel was a nice surprise. I stayed in a female room of 8 and it was great. The lockers are huge, enough to store a whole suitcase and anything else you need. In the locker there is a shelf for smaller items, which makes daily life easier. Also, there are two power sockets in the locker, which is so...

I had a great stay in a 4 pax mixed dorm. The staffs are friendly, place is clean, bed is comfortable and great activities organized by the management. Thanks to them, now I know every Sunday in Sydney all transport paid with Opal is at AU$2.50 for the entire day. No matter how many rides you took on Sunday, you'll...

Excellent location, just opposite to the Central Train Station with 2 minutes walk where you can take the train to Circular Quay and Blue Mountain (Katoomba Station). About 5 minutes walk to Central Light Rail Station for Sydney Fish Market. Plenty of dining places around the hostel. The hostel staff we met were very friendly. There were only very basic...

I was originally staying here during the Xmas/New Years period. During this time, there was always something going on at the hostel. The hostel has a pretty cool rooftop terrace which is great on sunny days and warm evenings to have a few drinks. The 8-bed dorm I was in was very big and the bathrooms were cleaned regularly; the...

I've stayed in a lot of hostels around Australia and the rest of the world, but this one was by far my favourite. Clean rooms and friendly staff. The best thing about this hostel is the events that staff put on throughout the week. As a solo traveller this was particularly great, the event staff were amazing and made sure...

A friend and I arrived at Bounce on 22nd Feb, originally booking in for a week to start our year in Sydney. We ended up staying for an entire month and had an absolute ball! The hostel itself is clean, spacious, has great amenities including the social kitchen and rooftop area and movie room. Bathrooms are well maintained and showers...
