Wake up! is a large hostel in a great location. Very friendly staff. The kitchen area was large and nice. The bathrooms were clean each time I went in there and the showers had good water pressure. Blankets were warm and the beds were clean. We were in a private room facing the train line. Our only negative is that...

A very nice hostel right in the middle of Sydney. You can walk to the opera, darling Harbour and the bridge! The staff is nice and there is always things going on. The cleaning ladies sometimes start waaaay to early and can wake us up a 7:30... but the hostel is very clean. I was on the 3rd floor and...

We stayed here for 2 nights after staying in a nightmare hostel! It was nice to be greeted by friendly staff. We checked in a little early so was given a pass to use the facilities till our room was ready. We booked a private room for the nights and was pleasantly surprised. The room was quaint but big enough...

Very basic room but clean and comfortable with towels and also and a decent size flat screen TV. Bathroom facilities clean and fine.
