What an amazing place, the staff are super cool. I would like to thank Kerry and Luke for making my experience unforgettable. The Soda factory event is also something special. The travel desk hooked me up with some great deals too. I will return at some point. Thanks heaps.

I would like to thank the Bounce crew for an epic stay. This is an amazing hostel with such a great atmosphere, awesome rooftop and super comfy beds. The rooms are very spacious, clean and with big lockers to store your luggage. There is free wifi, free drinks and cheap food. Danku!

The absolute best hostel. So clean. Comfortable. Great vibe. I nearly wanted to hug all the staff to thank them for creating such a great place. I honestly can not recommend this high enough. Very expensive but also so great. I loved it here.

Located right beside Central station this hostel provides a great base. The welcome was warm and helpful; the room (a twin with ensuite) clean and quiet and the large kitchen and terrace area well equipped. We would definitely stay again.

Great location opposite central station, saved me getting a taxi to the airport. I only spent a week here but I had a great time. I met some fun people to explore Sydney with. Has all the hostel amenities you'd expect. Free wifi in the rooms that actually works! Laundry facilities, no private bathrooms though. The lockers were massive with plug sockets inside them which was great means I could charge my macbook with out worrying when I left the room. Kitchen area is big with loads of fridges so there will always be room. plenty of stoves , grills to make use of. Nice outside balcony area with a great view of the city. Fun nights for meeting people , pizza and goon nights, beer pong, party buses. Oh take me back!

Bounce has to be 1 of the best hostels in Sydney. The rooms are extremely clean, rooftop is very sociable a and the view is unreal!! kitchen nice and clean, good facilities and brilliant central location. The only downside to this hostel is that the staff share the laundrette to wash all the bedding set etc so you sometimes struggle to get your washing done so bare that in mind. Other than that, no complaints.

The room was clean and comfortable with en-suite.Staff helpful, Bounce is aimed at young people with travel on their minds.Lots of back packers use Bounce. It offers lots of social activities for its clientele. Good location and price.

Never know which reviews to trust but I wasn't let down with this one. Extremely clean and well maintained, super friendly and helpful staff. Roomy dorms with lockers, some cafes and restaurants nearby and a quick train ride to Circular Quay, where there are some great views and tours.

Arrived early on Friday check in doesn't open till the afternoon so the staff were able to hold me bag and give me use of the hostel facilities; checked in at 1pm which was great. Hostel is welcoming and good quality. Beds were clean and has a big locker with power sockets which was very convenient.

Of all the hostels I have stayed in, this was by far the best! The rooms and bathrooms were exceptionally clean and included very large lockers. The facilities in general were up to date. The kitchen was very large and also clean. The hostel is also very secure. Each guest is given a key card which needed to be used to access any of the hostels amenities. There was very much a hotel feeling to Bounce, but with a good social atmosphere. Every day staff members and posters around the hostel informed you of that evening’s events which often included free drinks, discounted food and free entry into bars/clubs. Although Bounce is not the cheapest hostel you will find in Sydney, it is in my opinion one of the best. If I ever return to this city, there will be no hesitation to stay here!
