I had a brilliant time at Wake Up! I booked in with some buddies I’d met on the road, and they allowed us to book separately but request to be in the same room.
3 of us slept in a 6 bed dorm, with another few friends dotted around other rooms. Only gripe is that there are 2 accessible plug sockets, and one halfway up the wall for a room of 6. The lockers were large but you do need your own lock or can purchase one from reception.
Side Bar below was brilliant, nightly events on, cheap good drinks and friendly staff. We joined in the Trivia quiz on Tuesday and won over 10 free drinks for our team. We attended the Coogee to Bondi beach walk where we met a bunch of new friends and really enjoyed the well paced sight seeing walk, all free from the hostel.
Location is prime, right next to central station and next to a host of bus stops including the free 555 which takes you down to Circular Quay and the Opera House etc. Its only about a 15 minute walk anyway, and 5 minutes to China Town etc. A few local bars and not far at all to bigger clubs like Ivy etc.
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, friendly staff, comfy beds, bathrooms were never too busy, good vibe in the common areas and 3 days of wifi for $11, which is good and works in your room – yes it isn't free but where is in Aus?! This was a good deal compared to prices down the east coast! I would strongly recommend to all travelers going to Sydney!
