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.

Sam I Am This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in so can't say much besides positive things about it! It's right next to Central Station which can be a great location if you are moving around the city a lot (buses around the corner to Coogee/Bondi Junction, not far to Glebe or Chinatown or even the CBD and the Harbour). If you are after the beach, then pick a hostel in Manly/Bondi or Coogee though. Back to the hostel. It is slightly pricey, but very modern and secure and compared with other properties around there (YHA Central is around the corner) and the quality of the place not over-priced. Would recommend it to friends and family. If you plan on staying in Sydney for a long time it's a great place to start out but the price will become a burden quickly after you've gotten more familiar with the city and other options.

Cool Paul The Palms, The Palms, The Palms, where do I begin? I met a guy in the blue Mountains that said, "If you are going back to sydney you need to go to The Palms! Free internet! Free xbox! Free Breakfast! Tons of cool people..." He wouldn't stop talking about it, so me and a girl I met in the blue mountains booked a night a couple of nights there. Well I got there and my first impression of the place was to turn around and run as fast as I could. the building was mess, I had to step over a people laying in the middle of the floor to get to my room which was so cluttered I couldn't open the door all the way. Plus there were bugs on the walls! I headed out with this girl for the night we partied at a couple of clubs with some people from other hostels, and I came back to the palms at 4am and everyone was still up so I started talking to a few of them, I had a blast made a lot of new friends...next thing I know a couple of weeks passed and I had to pry myself away to see the rest of australia. I could have easily spent my entire trip there. The place is small...it's like a house with 30 people living in it, and most of the people have either been there for months because they like it so much or they are return visitors because they liked it so much. plus the owner, Dan is pretty cool, he has a dog that hangs around the hostel, and takes people to the beach. Best hostel I stayed at in australia...easily!

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.
