I first stayed at Wake Up in August 2011, and it was fine, and I remember they gave you a bunch of vouchers when you checked in, which was always a plus. The vouchers are still a feature, and the hostel seems really fun if you’re looking for a party hostel. I usually stay with friends in Sydney but I... More

Started my Australia travels by staying in this hostel for 2 weeks. Met some great people along the way. Staff a really nice and friendly. Loved the blonde one :P kitchen can be overcrowded at times but I found out that I need to note down the quiet times so I could have my food. Side bar was great. Tried... More

I went there with 5 more friends and we shared a 8-men room. The environment there is quite nice, with people from all over the world. At the kitchen we've met 2 German persons and we went to some places together. Really good times... The hostel is close to the train station and bus stops, and relatively close to the... More

me and my friend paid for a 10 person mixed dorm but was given a 6 mixed dorm room instead (yay!) I'll definitely recommend this hostel to those people who are looking for a cheap and safe place to stay in Sydney.

I stayed there two nights and took a 6 female dorm. Rooms wasn't so big, but they did have really good lockers for everyone. Only bad thing in that room was that air condition was either on or off and when it was on, it was freezing cold sleeping in top bed. They make bed for u when u come,... More

I found this place to be very happening. The staff are very friendly, helpful, sociable, informative and knowledgeable. The rooms and facilities are excellent and clean. Cutlery, crockery and fridges are provided. The cafe and side bar are just a few steps away for food and refreshments. Everyday there are day and night activities and entertainment organise for Wake Up... More

I had the best week staying in Wake Up! The staff were really friendly and helpful. The hostel was very clean and the beds were comfortable. I couldn't get over how huge the hostel was 8 floors including the lobby! I recommend going to Side Bar at least once when staying at the hostel, it's an experience. My only problem... More

By far the worst hostel I stayed at during all my travels. No free wifi (very important for backpackers), the doors to the room were ridiculously loud so anytime anyone went in or out there was a huge slam and the automatic lock was very loud. Even if they tried to be very quiet it still ended up waking at... More
