Its a backpacker hostel with dormitory kind of sleeping arrangement. I rated it very good on the basis of price i paid for 2 night stay.

The cleanliness is very good which makes one's stay comfortable. They also provide 30 min complimentary internet usage in their internet booth.

Their staff service is quite good and they are quite cooperative in guiding where to go and how to go.

Best part of this hotel is its location. Its at walking distance from Central station where direct train from Airport comes. In fact the platform is just one boundary away from the hotel :). There is a free buss service which takes you around the city (few common tourist place). The stop for this bus is also at walking distance from the hotel

The room as cupboards for individual inmates to keep luggage. But we need to carry lock for it. There are common TV rooms where you can make friends (other backpackers) to roam around the city.

Over all, a wonderful experience.

A great hostel to stay at for any Sydney festivals, it is literally just across the road from the train station so it's super easy getting to and from anywhere! The roof top bar/chill out area is really to just sit and chat. The rooms we spacious and the bathrooms were clean. Very nice indeed

Bounce is a beautiful hostel. It is clean and looks new! The bathrooms were generally spotless. The beds were really comfortable. Lockers are great with lots of space - Which I loved! Although, you had to buy your own locks at reception (not good quality either and I would suggest you buy your own beforehand) which I did not see anything about on the website.

I met a number of amazing guests there who I am still in contact with and so happy I met them. However, the majority of the staff there were very unfriendly, and only made an effort with people who either also worked there or were long term guests... In fact, not one member of staff spoke to me when I was socialising with others upstairs. I also got a very bad vibe off them all - That's why I've only put an average for this rating as it let my stay down. On my arrival, before I had experienced this, a guest on my floor said they were leaving because the hostel was very cliquey! I feel this is a shame for such a great hostel. I think Bounce needs to employ friendlier, more upbeat staff, who are enthusiastic about getting to know new guests and making people feel more welcome. This is the only bad thing to say about Bounce but this issue needs attention as I believe it is really letting their brilliant reputation down.

Props for arranged nights by Bounce such as the $4 4 pieces of pizza and unlimited goon + free bus to Trademark! I would love to do more nights like this with Bounce.

Just across the street from the central train station, this place is very affordable. The staff were very friendly, breakfast was a great way to start with day. Our favorite was the lounge area upstairs with the great city view.

Stayed at Bounce for the first 2 nights of my time in Sydney. Fantastic location (minutes away from Central Station and walking distance from Chinatown & Paddy's Market). Very clean and reasonably priced accommodation. The staff working there were really friendly and approachable (great with directions too!). Will recommend Bounce to anyone who's planning for a trip to Sydney! ;)

Overall not bad. The people working there were friendly, and the location of the place is quite good. The showers were clean. The only problem was that the staff were cleaning the showers around 6am when everybody had to get ready.. so there were not enough showers for everybody in the morning. We stayed at the 6-people dorm and the people we roomed with were pretty rude, putting the lights on at 3am for ex. One of them was sick, caughed her lungs out all night and finally gave the virus to everybody.. but that was just bad luck. I would say it's a nice hostel overall.

Nice hostel, the bathrooms are very clean and the staff is friendly enough. The rooms are very quiet you cannot hear people from outside of the rooms. One thing though maybe cleaning the bathrooms at 6.30am is not the best idea as many of us wake upnat this time for tours or go to the airport and we nneed access .
