This was the first hostel I stayed on my month long trip in Australia and on the whole was a good place to stay. I stayed in the 6 bed female dorm. Positives - Really easy to find (opposite Sydney Central) and a good location for local attractions. - Friendly reception (which is open 24 hours - always useful) -... More

This is basically everything a hostel is supposed to be and nothing more. I think the building was an old department store or something like that so it's quite big. We stayed in a double room which was very basic. A bed and a metal frame to put coats on. A very high ceiling made the room feel a bit... More

I stayed one night in a 4 bed female dorm about three weeks ago and while I had stayed here previously this was my first time in a dorm room. The staff here are wonderful - so friendly and welcoming. The location could not be better - right in the city, across the road from Central train station and Railway... More

I've stayed here many times on Business and pleasure. Very clean and spacious rooms, with great staff. There's a club underneath which you can sometimes hear when sleeping on the lower floors. Always slept well and enjoyed my stay! They have a big TV area which is cool to watch movies on!

When I was in Sydney we had actually booked our accommodation at the World Square Hostel, as that was cheap and had a great location. After one horrible night, we moved to Wake Up! which was like coming to heaven. Their homepage said it was sold out, but we showed up in person and they had available beds at a... More

My friend and I stayed here for 3 weeks while taking a vacation in Sydney. The hostel is 5min walk from the train station which was ideal for us. The staff were very helpful arranging trips and days out. The bar on the basement floor is a great way to meet people. Although we were not travelling many travellers said... More

Stayed here two weeks before starting to move around. Staff is friendly, rooms get cleaned often, bathrooms are clean enough, snack bar prices are a bit high but hey it's Sydney. The hostel organises activities such as city and beach walks, which is nice. Side Bar downstairs offers a different budget dish every day, very handy for people trying to... More

desk staff were great, hostel is very clean (although the room cleaners are as loud as the new years eve fireworks) and the wake up announcements in the morning can be annoying, but hey it's their thing. Don't stay on the first floor if you want to sleep, I only made that mistake once. The bar (sidebar) down stairs is... More
