When i first came to Sydney i stayed at Wake up hostel for four days, and had such a good time, met so many nice people. Charlene, the travel manager helped me out with everything i needed to feel settled and comfortable. Now, 6 months later charlene helped me plan out my eastcoast trip and she has been the best...

Great hostel. Super location. Clean and friendly staff. Well organised with lots of tour options. Downtown Sydney is a short walk away. Were able to check in early after a log flight. Good prices, considering we were backpacking around Australia

Wake up was so great i stayed twice, it's clean, Central and a community. Great bar/club downstairs, tv/kitchen area was perfect. It's annoying there weren't any stairs you had to use your pass, don't know what happens in case of a fire? It did mean the place felt very secure, I would definitely recommend Wake up!

As far as hostels go, it's not bad. My low review though is warranted by the fact we paid for a deluxe en suit at $148 a night and got a raw deal. We managed to peer in to two others during our stay and they were far superior! Each had double the space with a desk or bed side... More

Stayed for three nights with a friend before we had to get out of there. I was surprised since I've read so many good reviews on this hostel. First of all it's clean and nice in that sense but I wasn't a very big fan of the male cleaning staff coming in at 9.30 when all of us girls were... More

Wake Up was the first hostel I stayed when I arrived in Australia and it set the bar pretty high for the other places Ive stayed in since! The rooms, kitchen and bathrooms were tIndy and clean and the entertainment provided was always fun. Even though it's seen as a party hostel which I thought I wouldn't like, I managed... More

It's very much hit or miss - I had some very dull room mates and considering I was here for a week in an 8 person dorm with a constant turnover you would expect to meet quite a lot of lively people. Conversely I found it to be 'sleep up' hostel, people were sleeping from 8pm! Perhaps the staff aren't... More

Hi Davrospop, Thank you very much for your review. You are correct in that your room mates can certainly make or break your stay. I would encourage you to see reception next time as we would have moved you in an instant had we known the room was not to your liking. We have plenty of 'party' rooms on any... More

Visited from Brisbane, staff at this place were soooooo nice and more than helpful to give you local advice. Special shout out to Ken the party starter and Simon, the best glassy in the whole of Side Bar. Side bar underneath had things happening every night and really cheap, good food as well as happy hour. Great scene for solo... More
