Nice hostel close to train stationPosted Oct 14, 2013
Pros: New, clean, and close to train station
Location: Nearby the Central Train Station in Sydney. Easy access to Sydney Harbor and downtown areas.
This is the best hostel I've ever stayed in! New, clean, and convenient. Staff kept bathrooms very clean, and bedding in rooms looked new. White floors, white beds, and white sheets, which is always a good sign. Highly recommend!

Pros: location and people
SUperb Location (Near to Central station). Good for backpackers, as you can meet many others here. Kitchen closes at midnight otherwise everything is perfect.

Was ok.Posted May 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
All in all the stay was ok. hostel was warm & clean enough. Staff was helpful. Only thing was that there were some confusion as housekeeping seems to have made the wrong bed. All the other beds were taken and there wasn't a clean bed available when I came back in the night.

Met great peoplePosted May 19, 2013
Pros: Giant lockers with outlets so I can charge my computer while I am out. Convenient location to the train station. Cheap food parties.
Cons: Outlet by the beds, cleaner bathrooms and supply some body wash and hand soap. The key for the bathrooms is overkill - easy to get locked out.
Location: Train station. Surrey hills is right behind the hostel and has great shops, bars, and restaurants.
The rooms are huge and so are the lockers. There are lots of washers and dryers (although a load ends up being quite expensive when you have to buy detergent as well) and a huge kitchen and common area with a nice rooftop deck. The location is good to explore surrey hills bars and restaurants and anywhere else by train. I met great friends in my 8 bed mixed dorm that I keep in touch with months later. Make the WiFi free, provide laundry detergent, and put some soap and shampoo in the bathrooms and clean them more often and this place is a good value.

Friendly and Convenient!Posted Apr 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
I had a great time at Bounce. I only stayed there for 2 nights as my friends took me in for the other two nights I was in Sydney, but the place was very affordable, spotless, and the front desk staff was so friendly (and humorous!). I had an "ensuite" bathroom, which was actually just outside our room (which makes more sense, as a bathroom right inside would be a bad idea.)The music was a little crazy loud on the 5th floor common area for me, but that's my only complaint, if any. I definitely would recommend Bounce to anyone looking for a short sweet stay in Sydney in a convenient and safe location.

Great StayPosted Apr 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
i had absolutely no problems staying at this hostel. The staff treated the residents with great respect and customer service. It was very easy to meet people and talk about traveling and future trips. I would definitely stay again. Cost for WiFi was reasonable and the balconoy on the top was awesome. I was able to cook food and meet people from all around the world. The location was the best since it was so close to central station.

Simple, boutique style hostelPosted Oct 11, 2012 on Hotels.com
Stayed 5 nights in a 7-bed mixed dorm. Choose the only single be (the rest were bunkbeds) and the bed was really comfy and the room was tidy and clean. All lockers to the bunkbeds had outlets, but for the single bed the storage was underneath the bed and no outlet anywhere near. You had to charge your mobile and ipad near the door, out of sight. But, it was no problem, but a miss calculation when choosing bed. Friendly staff, great to be able to shower in private in the restroom areas. Toilets are clean, but depending of tidiness of other guests! You need your card to access toilets and room and the different levels so if feels safe. The kitchen area was nice and had full equipment. Common areas were avaliable with computers, TV room, sofas, outdoor roofterrace, laudry room etc . Walking distance to all major sights in daytime, but would recommend to take a taxi during evenings if not taking the train. Central station is really close and the airport link leaves from the closes platform.My card stopped working one evening after a visit in the rest room, but after a quick visit to the reception it was quickly sorted out. I did pay at arrival, even though the booking stated to pay after you check out. And there was a fee for foreign credit card payment. All in all, I am happy with my stay, and would recommend it for anyone that need a nice place to stay and don't mind sharing facilities with others.
