Bounce was clean, perfectly located and relatively quiet. The staff was nice and I felt very safe. There a lot of opportunities to socialize with other travelers but you can still get a good night sleep. Check out the bar next door too.

Bounce is in the center of everything- location certainly can't be beat!

We used bounce as a base in Sydney and it was a good price for a really good location. I walked to Bondi, Coogee, Alexandria and the CBD from here so no need for public transport if you've got your trainers and want to see the city.

I consider this hostel of a fair standard. It is clean, quiet and comfortable. Online it advertises onsite restaurant however this is not true. There is a cafe close by which I tried but did not like. The reception staff are pleasant and the rooms are generous in size. The shower water temperature could be hotter.

Staying in Surry Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Surry Hills
Once regarded as the traditional fashion area, Surry Hills has broadened its appeal. This neighbourhood continues to distinguish itself as a shopping destination, offering the best collection of one-of-a-kind boutiques, designer brands and flagship stores in the city. Today, this area has evolved into a hub of media, design and professional services - a colourful and diverse place equally known for its antique dealers, art galleries, cafes and pubs. Strolling down the street on a Saturday morning, you’ll see a mix of students, artists, hipsters and a few all-nighters from Oxford Street, the “Gay Capital of Sydney”. In this vibrant neighbourhood you will find bohemian chic and modern style co-existing side by side.
