I stayed in a smelly hostel for my first night. Then serviced apartments. I found Bounce on my last night and booked it because it's literally across the road from Central Station. What a find!! It's clean and quiet and user friendly. They have different 'nights' for their guests so Monday is film and popcorn, Tuesday is pizza ... you...

Stayed in bounce for two weeks over Christmas and New Years. Was amazing. Clean rooms, the Netflix area, computer area and roof top area along with the kitchen were all top draw. Friendly staff. Couldn't have asked for more

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 7 nights over the Christmas and New Year Period and were not disappointed! Bounce is more like a hotel than a hostel as it's so modern and clean! The staff are great and really helpful and, even though it is a party hostel, it wasn't noisy or uncomfortable to be in if you...

I stayed in Bounce for 12 days (during Christmas and NYE). Firstly, the location is brilliant, right opposite of the Central station. Facilities are great and the hostel is modern and clean. Showers are good and there is enough space to change. Locker is big and fitted my 65l backpack nicely. No power plug near the bed which was quite...

Free desktop computers to use. Spacious kitchen. Very pleasant rooftop deck. Helpful staff and travel desk. Younger party crowd, alcohol is allowed throughout. Overall a good choice for party seekers...

I'm giving Bounce a 5-star cause my experience shouldn't ruin their ratings - BUT READ THROUGH TO KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. The hostel itself was in fact cleaner and better presented than another hotel and hostel I stayed at. The staff are friendly enough and they helped me out when I made a mistake in my booking dates (which was...

First time hostel experience and I think it has ruined me for future hostel stays because they won't compare. The staff are amazing, kind and very helpful, clean facilities and large lockers! Loved it.

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.
