Liked: ONe of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. More like a hotel! We had a triple private room with our own bathroom and it was so nice. The rooftop is amazing, the kitchen is huge and they have all facilities that you could need. Literally right next to central station and in a great location.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Great location (very close to the central station), very friendly staff, and wonderful atmosphere.

Disliked: The girls bathroom could be a little bit cleaner (or maybe was just bcause the girls on my floor were too dirty).

Liked: Great Location right next to Central station. A big hostel, rooms are big, there's AC, everything is very clean and the common room/kitchen/outside area is great.

Disliked: This hostel is average is too many ways to be this expensive. Yes, it's clean and in a great location and the staff are competent. But, to charge this much when you can't check in until 2 and must check out at 10:30 but you have to make your own bed with ill fitting sheets, and to clean a whole 8 bed room only takes staff 6 minutes? The pillows also need to be upgraded.The staff are competent but not what you'd expect in terms of service or friendliness from a hostel you pay this much for- which has more to do with management and training than the staff members themselves. You certainly won't have a bad time here, and if you have the cash and are already with people, stay here for sure, but you'll have a good experience for less money at some of the other top rated hostels in sydney.

Liked: This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at & I fully intend on coming back in a few weeks' time! It was clean, trendy, modern, with great facilities available (huge kitchen, nice common areas, TV, games, clean bedrooms & bathrooms etc). Bounce was located next to the central station so very handy for getting around. The staff were always polite & friendly.

Disliked: If anything the wifi is expensive but I think that's just common throughout hostels in Australia.
