Clean, organised & great location

Great staff and great evening events. Constantly being cleaned and very organised, the kitchen was amazing for a hostel. Also very located next to central!

Nice backpackers close to Central station

Nice hostel with helpful staff. Rooms were clean but the bunks were creaky. Also would be nice not to get charged an arm and a leg for towel rental.

Great value for no-frills travel

The Bounce is a short distance from Central station, walking distance to local bars. Check in was easy. We booked a room (rather than a dorm) which was secure, clean and tidy. Better than some Sydney hotels. I'd stay again.

Would stay again

Awesome location.. right on the train route to head downtown or to the airport. Rooms were clean. Not a party hostel so you can actually get some sleep..... locked luggage storage is a bonus.

Thanks for your feedback! It is great to hear you found our location convenient and you were comfortable during your stay. Whilst we do encourage our guests to meet by organising social events every evening we also ensure they do not disturb our guests who want to enjoy a quiet night in or an early night. See you next time!

Sydney central

2 minute walk from station. Friendly reception staff. Lifts to all floors. Decent sized clean room, kettle and hairdryer provided. Great shower and toiletries. Was noisy during night but we were told action would be taken!

Perhaps the best hostel I've ever stayed at! Incredible roof top patio, awesome staff who is super accomodating, very clean and super hi tech with safe entry cards.

Convenient Hostel very close to Central station

Posted Mar 22, 2017
Pros: The staffs are very helpful and friendly
Cons: A fixed light on, light off time. Better ventilation facilities is required as well.
Location: It's so close to the light rail to Fish Market, China Town and Darling Harbour.
The overall experience staying in this hostel was not really good. The main issues for the room are about the ventilation and lighting. People in the room I stayed always wanted to keep the lights off even mid-day. The room was so dark and smelly all the time. They sometimes turned off the air-con so that it's not too cold, but this made the ventilation even poorer.

Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback, Eric. I am sorry to hear you had a bad experience with your room mates. Obviously, when you are sharing a room with 8 other people everyone will have different schedules and needs. Next time please let our friendly staff know, they would be more than happy to move you to a different room.
