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.

petchy111 The hostel staff were very friendly and helpful with our stay and with additional information about the area. The room was clean and comfortable but it did not have air conditioning which made the room a little hot. The kitchen and eating area were nice and there was a good atmosphere. I would recommend it as a place to stay in Sydney.

Sander By far my favorite hostel in Sydney, I return here every chance I get. The very best part about this hostel is its location in glorious Glebe, a very welcoming and almost bohemian feeling neighbourhood, with the atmosphere of a small village, yet a mere 20 minute walk / 10 minute bus ride (15 in rush hour) away from central station (take bus 431, and ride it to its next to last stop; you'll know you're there when everyone else has gotten off the bus). Glebe Point Road is lined with awesome bakeries, cafes, used bookstores and restaurants, perfect for spending a lazy afternoon. The hostel itself has good atmosphere, and features an awesome rooftop terrace with lazy hammocks (only in summer) and frequent barbecues. Its rooms are clean, the kitchen large and okayishly equipped (has been better), and the bathrooms are decent (although only just; they could definitely stand being improved upon). I don't care much for its TV lounge either, but with the rooftop terrace, I've never felt the need to hang out there anyway. Highly recommended.
