A friend and I arrived at Bounce on 22nd Feb, originally booking in for a week to start our year in Sydney. We ended up staying for an entire month and had an absolute ball! The hostel itself is clean, spacious, has great amenities including the social kitchen and rooftop area and movie room. Bathrooms are well maintained and showers...

This was by far the cleanest hostel that I have ever stayed at. It is directly across the road from Central Station and down the street from a supermarket. the staff were very friendly and the hostel put on a huge range of activities, including free party buses and discounted/free tickets to nights out, $2 hot dog and burger nights....

Spacious rooms, comfy beds and nice facilities. The kitchen is big and pretty clean, really difficult to start some of the stoves though. Big eating area and rooftop. Movie room with Netflix! I really recommend staying here!

This is the best hostel in Sydney hands down. It is centrally located and less than a 5 min walk to the train station. When you walk in it looks like a hotel and the staff is terrific. The open patio on the top level and kitchen area is very big and enjoyed lots of nights meeting people and drinking...

Friendly staff - guys on reception were lovely - maybe too friendly at times. when we were there felt not much of a communal vibe however might have been people there. Rooms and bed were clean and comfortable and lockers were perfect for leaving all our belongings and not having to worry. Overall, definitely recommend it. Good kitchen and amazing...

I stayed here when I was backpacking around the world with my younger brother. It's a really nice hostel with super friendly staff who are always happy to help. There's a large kitchen with all the right facilities with ample fridge space, and this is next to a large dining area that also leads outside to a rooftop style eating...

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!

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.
