Awesome clean hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Located in a great spot! Loved it! Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Sydney!

This is less of a hostel and more of a well cleaned dorm. The staff are great, friendly and helpful. The amenities are great. The best would be the weekly activities and food. As well as the 4th floor patio. Great place to meet so many people from all over the world.

the rooms were clean with lockers and the bathrooms were basically clean. the only issue was two showers per floor for all the guests. large kitchen with a great deck. I only wish the guests would actually rinse out the bathroom sink when done shaving and clean up their dishes immediately instead of leaving them in the sink.

Absolutely new and clean, safe (key card and big individual locker), staff nice and friendly. The big kitchen is clean with nice terrace. Bounce is close to Central Station, easy to walk or catch the train to CBD.

Good: * almost next door to Central Station * hotel is very new (built in 2010) * free breakfast * rooftop lounge area is cool with ok view * cheap for CBD Bad: * Noise: We're in RM207 (private double ensuite bathroom) next to fire exit door & co-ed bathroom. We stayed for 9 nights. For 8 out of 9 nights, we heard some kind of noises from early night/morning. They might be in hallway, but I didn't thing a staff did anything to drunk guests even though some loud talking/screaming continued for 1H or longer. * Room Cleaning: We put "Please make up room" sign every morning, but our room wasn't cleaned even once. We knew the cleaning crew saw the sign because the trash can was emptied every day. Nevertheless to say, they didn't change towel/sheets. * Service: My husband asked for extra pillow at the reception desk. She said to have someone bring to the room. He didn't get an extra pillow during our stay. * Free Shuttle Service: We called from airport and waited for almost an hour. After calling the hotel multiple times, we ended up taking train. They reimbursed the cost, but I really wanted to get to the hotel more than anything as our flight arrived in the evening. Recommendation: I'd recommend if you're broke. But I don't recommend for others. If I do it again, I'd book the "hotel" near Circular Quay even it costs more.

Nice facilities and fun meeting other travelers. Had an overall enjoyable experience.
