Me and a friend started our backpacking experience here. Stayed for a week. Very good location, right in the city and lots to see and do. Very busy hostel. First night we arrived we were allocated a room that was fully occupied! At about 10pm we were afraid to turn on the light to see what beds were empty that we could take and through the torches on our iphones we discovered there were none! We got moved after reception eventually sorted it out! Hostel kitchen should be bigger to accommodate everyone! Sydney is very expensive!

Stayed at Wake Up for five nights in a double room. Excellent location!! The room was clean, modern and a good size. The toilet/shower facilities were again very clean and the kitchen was spotless. Recommend staying here :)

I was looking forward to this stay, I'd heard good reviews about the place. Was a big let down, was very comfortable, was cheap, wasnt fun and was the worst hostel in Oz!

The lift is poor, can wait for 15mins for it to arrive, there are no stairs to rooms so you HAVE to wait. They issue you a key card that if put next to a mobile phones wipes it clear and doesnt work. The common room is in the lobby and has nowhere to sit and relax, the internet is shockingly poor and slow. Have to pay alot of money for little service on the net.

The tv room has no seats just benchs to 'lay' on and gets crowded quickly, the kitchen is a mess and has no secure locking for food.

Rooms are average at best and offer little comfort for anyone other than drunks past out.

The bar attached is poor too, the dj plays tunes from an ipod and the playlist repeats every night, food is poor and over priced too down there.

Dont stay here, book somewhere else
