Bounce was perfect for our stay in Sydney. All the employees we met were very friendly and helpful! The triple room was quiet, comfortable, great air conditioning, good location, reasonable price. Loved that we could drop our luggage on early arrival also. We would stay again.

It was my first time in a hostel and I have to admit that was a great experience. I am used to have my own room and bathroom, but even this is not the case, as I was in a 8 beds room, it was really comfortable. The best part though are the social areas and activities. They really take...

Literally the best hostel we have come across! Rooms are spacious, toilets and rooms are clean, staff and other travellers were always helpful and friendly. Its exactly what you want from a hostel, but to be honest if not better!

The hostel is clean and safe, and the beds are ok and quite comfortable. The location is great, near Central Station and gives an easy access to everything. No breakfast, which could have been nice. But the kitchen is big and nice, and the view from the 4th floor is great. One thing that I did not like is the...

Stayed here for 1 night only with two friends. Friendly staff at reception. The room was clean, comfortable & spacious. The hostel is in a good location as it's right next to the Central train station.

We stayed for 2 nights at the end of november in this hostel. Rooms are big and you have a lot of space in a 4 bedroom, nice big lockers where you can put some things in. Free wifi everywhere in the hostel! The only thing that disturbed me were the windows that can't be opened, so you don't have...

I've stayed at bounce 3 times now over the last year. It's my home base whenever I'm in Sydney. It's one of the best hostels I've ever stayed - it has a large roof terrace, lounge area, movie area & all the facilities you'd expect. The rooms are large, the AC is awesome, the wifi is free & most of...

I stayed here just one night before starting a tour. It is in a fantastic location directly across from central train station. It's easy to come and go from the airport and go to the harbour to see the harbour bridge and opera house and transfer by ferry to the beaches etc. The hostel is clean with a lot of...

This hostel has it all - plenty of clean facilities, very nice rooftop area, train station right across the road, huge lockers, TV room, friendly staff, the list goes on. I've stayed here twice now, and will always make it my first choice of hostel for future visits to Sydney.

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.
