Liked: Bounce Sydney was clean and appealing with a nice roof-top lounge. The staff was friendly and helpful, helping me to determine the best route to take to the airport so that I did not miss my early flight. The room (I stayed in an all-girl 8 person room) was spacious and had a full-sized wall mirror and hooks to hang your towel or jacket on. The bathrooms also has a few hooks which were helpful to hang your stuff on while getting ready in the morning. The central location made it easy to access the train (station is right across the street) as well as restaurants near by. You can literally walk pretty much straight up the street and after about an hour and a half arrive at the Opera House and Harbour Bridge or take the more scenic route and walk through the parks and Botanical Garden on the way there.

Disliked: Free or less expensive WiFi would have been nice (it was $15 for 3 days, which is average, though free is always better). The restaurant/bar adjacent to the hostel is very noisy at night (at least on the weekend) so bring ear plugs or an iPod to block out the noise if you would like to sleep better at night. (The hostel itself is calm and quiet at night though.)

Liked: The hostel is in an excellent location, it has a great atmosphere and the rooms and bathrooms are very clean. The night shift receptionists, were very friendly and assisted us well with future bookings. We planned to stay 1 night, but ended up staying 8 nights!The organised nights out each evening were good fun, we especially liked the Tuesday night. Costa was great fun and made sure everyone had a great night!The kitchen area is always clean and they have good social areas in the hostel.

Disliked: Unfortunately there is no free wifi.
