3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A very good hostel, friendly staff and clean and comfortable premises. The only downfalls are that internet is quite expensive, and that the kitchen closes at 10 pm, which is very early. The TV room is also not great because of its proximity to the kitchen, and had a poor sound system when we were there. Other than these things... More

I have stayed in numerous hostels in my travels, and Wake Up is easily up there with the best I have stayed in. Definitely the best bathrooms - huge and always clean. The hostel has great facilities, great staff, the location couldn't be much better, and is good value for money. Really enjoyed my stay. There is no free wifi,... More

Stayed in this hostel for a week. It was great! The staff were friendly and accommodating, the bar below, 'Side Bar', was very lively and fun, the hostel itself was very clean and the location was perfect! The ladies at the travel desk helped us to plan our whole trip and it was one of the best decisions we made!... More

Stayed in this hostel for quite a while, and it's the best hostel in Australia (where I've stayed in). The bathrooms are very clean and the rooms are very spacious. Great bar underneath called side bar, had some awesome nights there. Wake up is also close to everything in Sydney. THANKS WAKE UP!!

Stayed there recently for 4 nights and can honestly say this is the best hostel I have stayed at. The location is absolutely ideal, right in the City centre and opposite central station/bus station- perfect for catching the greyhound bus or train to blue mountains (highly recommend an opal card, you will save money). The hostel has a club underneath... More

Wake Up hostel was pretty amazing for what we needed during our stay. Close to the train station, if you're into walking it's walkable to Darling Harbour, the mall, Opera House, Bridge, Hyde park, everything really. Staff is sweet and awesome. Especially James (who should totally come to Chicago and visit because hes a babe who deserves a raise and... More

This place is amazing ! Well located just outside central station ( rail and bus). Huge hostel but social environment due to events each day/night. Recommend wine and cheese night followed by side bar ! Rooms spacious enough, 10 beds on 7th floor were very spacious. Lockers in room need a little repair as a couple broken. Large kitchen area...

Its a great hostel with lots of things to do. The kitchen is big and well prepared. Theres places to socialize, including a bar just outside. But there is no free wi fi, what is an absurd considering how expensive it is. And could have free breakfast. But in general is an excellent hostel.

I stayed here with my partner in a private room. The biggest selling point is the location, directly across the road from Central Station it only took us 15 minutes from the airport on the train. It also only took 25 minutes to walk to Circular Quay and was moments from China Town. Because of the closeness to the station... More
