Liked: I liked everything, honestly... I traveled for 8 months and this was the best, most spacious hostel I stayed in. I stayed in a room for 8 and we had all this space in the centre of the room and would just sit on the floor and chat, it was such a luxury! Loved it!

Disliked: I found nothing to complain about during my stay here.

Liked: Super friendly and helpful staff. Bright & clean facilities. Breakfast (cereal, toast) included. Great location, right by the train station. Chinatown nearby = good, cheap food. CBD within walking distance or take the free CBD shuttle. Really enjoyed my stay here. Highly recommended.

Disliked: Nothing major. ...The lift is slow; I took the stairs instead. ; ) Some noise at night but hey, it's a hostel and that's expected. Bring some earplugs and you'll be fine.

25 September 2011 melanie would recommend this property

Liked: I stayed in a 4 bed with ensuite, it had 2 single beds and a bunk with heaps of room and really large lockers with power plugs inside your locker (needed your own lock). The ensuite was just across the passage that opened with the door key so the noise from bathroom didn't wake anyone up. Very easy to get around as across the road from main train station. had a lift to make lugging your bags up to your rooms easier. Very clean and bright.

Disliked: Breakfast was cerial and toast which is pretty standard for an included breakfast, area was a little untidy but this is more a reflection on lazy guests not cleaning up after themselfs in a common area than on the hostel

Liked: Literally a two minute walk from central train station. Bounce hotel is new and modern, with good facilities. Free shuttle bus around the city to circular quay can be found near by central station, making it very easy to get around the city

Disliked: It is a good half an hour walk into the main city and darling harbour, though as I've already mentioned there is a free shuttle bus that stops around the city. Also you have to pay $5 to store your luggage for the day.
