alice_yg The location of Bounce is great which is just opposite to the Central rail station and quite near the coach terminals and make us easily to go other places. If more than 3-4 people, it may be a better choice to take a taxi between airport and Bounce since the fare we took from the Bounce to the airport (international departure) only $26, even cheaper than taking coach ($12 per person). The kitchen is at the 4th floor and the facilities are fine. I saw every morning staff of Bounce were clean the kitchen. From last Saturday, Bounce provides free breakfasts to all guests. The room we booked was an ensuite which is clean though not very big.
travelnetwork The hostel staff were awesome and so accommodating for everyone staying at the hostel, and even some of the old residents who returned for quiz night. It was great that the staff ensured we had something to do each night and took us out in Kings Cross for a great $12 steak at a local pub The Sugarmill. We stuck around after dinner as the meal was was followed by pub quiz night which we almost won, so very close. The crew then asked who wanted to return to the hostel and who wanted to kick on and experience partying in Kings Cross and took us for several rounds of karaoke at O'Malley's Hotel. This included many terrible songs, some rock anthems and one or two rounds of shots. It's always a shame when you leave something in your room and when I got home I discovered this and emailed the hostel asap and Effie was kind enough to find the items I left in the locker in my room. They were also able to store them for a week until my friend could collect them. I can't say enough nice things about the location and the staff, they certainly deserve your consideration if you are thinking of staying in the Cross.

kt.harbo We stayed for five nights. We had a small, but nice room with air condition. For us the location was actually perfect as it was right by the beach, quiet, but not too boring. Even though it's a bit outside the heart of Sydney, it had everything we needed and more near by. Supermarket, laudry, internett (at the hostel), restaurants of different kind etc. The service was OK, but not great. Sometimes things seemed a bit unorganized, but overall a generally helpful staff. I would absolutely stay here next time I visit, but mainly due to the location. If you are a party person, this is not the right place for you.
rana1135 fab staff - excellent location and vibe. Bathroom could have been a bit cleaner . bed comfy and surprisingly quiet as regards traffic. I liked this place and would visit again.
emma.mcfad There needed to be more of a "welcome" note in the room telling people who stayed in the rooms about the facilities.
rachelle86 No lockers they will not store you laptop in the safe. Kitchen dirty intended to stay a couple of weeks got out after one night. The linen i recieved was old and threadbare. Its also not as close to the city as they make it out to be its actually a 30-45 min walk. Pretty expensive hostel for what it is. Bus is out the front but $3 to city each way which would add up. Staff were unhelpful but other guests were nice alot seem to be long term. Internet very expensive.
