Is really hard to chose a hostel in Sydney, most seems to be dirty, expensive and full of long terms. So that's why Wake Up couldn't be a better choice! Well located and with a great great staff. Like most of flights, I landed in Sydney at earlier morning and they just gave me a free 1h internet access, coffee... More

I stayed in a double room without an ensuite on the third floor. It's good value, especially when you consider the location. The only criticism is that the room was a bit stuffy. It would have been nice to let some fresh in through the windows, however they had been sealed shut.

I stayed in wake up for 2 nights and it was the best way to start with my travels in australia, it's a good place to chill out after a long flight. The hostel is really clean and the staff is really friendly. When im back in Sydney, im going back to wake up!

I stayed in Wake Up! for only one night in a 4 bed female share room and can definitely recommend Wake Up! The room was clean and had a decent size, furthermore you have your own bedside lamp and power-socket. The bathroom and toilets were all clean. Wake Up! has the perfect (central!) location to explore the city and the... More

Stayed at wake up for only 1 night because my other hostel was fully booked and did not want to sleep in a crappy hostel. I have to admit, the rooms are very small (especially for 42 bucks a night) but they are very clean, the beds are really good, you have your own light and powersocket above your bed,... More

Hi Lamgroote, Thank you for taking your time to leave us a review. Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. WakeUp! is a heritage-listed building and our rooms do vary in size. We have now added lockers under beds to some of the smaller rooms to create extra floor space. The reading lights and personal power sockets are a... More

Had the best experience at Wake Up! Clean facilities, amazing staff and perfect central location! As a solo female traveller I would definitely recommend Wake Up! Not once did I ever feel unsafe. I stayed in a Mixed 10 bed dorm and it was fantastic! Met amazing people and made amazing memories. Would definitely return in a heartbeat! The activities,... More

I stayed in Wake Up for 2 nighs. They upgraded me from a 10 dorm room to a 6 dorm room, that was super! The room, the kitchen and the bathroom were so clean. The bar under the hostel is the perfect place to go out and meet new people. There are activities everyday and that is a great way... More

Yes it might be a bit pricey but it's so clean and comfy, you can understand why. Side bar is perfect for a few drinks and some food, in the basement of the building.
