A great hostel. A bit noisy, but expected bearing in minds its a cbd hostel and tends to attract a younger crowd. Great staff, very helpful. Good value for money, got a free drink at the attached bar, and a free coffee at the attached café. Great location, just opposite central station. Would definitely recommend

Right from the moment I walked in, I was made very welcome. The Guys at the front desk were awesome, always with a smile on their faces. The rooms were clean and the bunks were really comfortable. The meals were good and well priced. I would definitely stay here again.

Great facilities, super clean bathrooms (nice showers and water pressure) the rooms are large and air conditioned. Some staff not as friendly as others... Locations a bit north for my preference but over all I quite enjoy WakeUp!

Huge hostel with all needed services. It was indeed party hostel, however you could sleep when wanted. Personally my experience was even better by having good luck with roommates. Of course this is not always the case.

Good hostel. I stayed 4 nights but I had to change room during my stay. The second room was much better than the first, it was the same number of bed (6) but the room was bigger, more facilities (locker, private light), so can't complain. The staff was pretty helpful, specially the blonde lady for my check-in. Some issue with the key card sometimes but nothing really bad. If I had to come back to Sydney, I think I will choose again this hostel.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some feedback. Our room sizes vary due to the shape of our building so there are some rooms that are naturally better than others. We are glad that you enjoyed your second room much better than the first! Thanks for also mentioning he helpfulness of our reception team. I am able to see who checked you in so I will be passing on your comments at our reception meeting today. Cheers Dev Penney GM - Wake Up! Sydney

Stayed at Wake Up for 3 nights whilst doing a bit of travelling around Australia. Safe to say it was the most enjoyable time of my trip, the hostel is clean, staff friendly and helpful, and the whole place is a buzz of atmosphere from the vast array of young people staying. If you are planning a trip to Syney then this is the place you have to stay. Amazing.

Loved everything about it! High standards for everything, booked 3 nights here and ended up staying another 3! Can get a little noisy in the evening on big nights but that's nothing a pair of ear plugs can't fix! If you're wanting a party atmosphere then this is the place!

Hi there, We love everything about your review! I will be passing your comments on to our Activities staff and the management team at Side Bar. I know they will be please that you have mentioned our party atmosphere! While there can be a little noise from the bar on our biggest nights, we offer complimentary ear plugs at reception for anyone who needs them as well! Cheers Dev Penney General Manager Wake Up!

Perfect location, slight downfall is the kitchen size doesn't reflect the number of guests but is still okay and has a lot of equipment. The cleaners work so hard here everyday and the hostel is on top form for cleanliness! An outdoor 'chill out' area other than the street/cafe would be perfect!

Great location. Most Backpackers weren't the friendliest when we arrived but not the hostels fault. great big kitchen and clean rooms. Laundry is way overpriced. A little expensive for what is offered and bar is crammed!

I had absolutely no complaints about Wake Up! The rooms were clean and comfortable. The place was clean. They organized events daily to help you meet people. The food at the bar and cafe were pretty good. The kitchen was big, but it was very crowded for a hostel this size. Definitely the most secure place I have stayed on my round the world trip. You need a keycard to get in the building, get to your floor, get in your room, etc.

Please feel free to give Side Bar a plug on your travels! Cheers Dev Penney General Manager Wake Up! Sydney

Good place to stay in Sydney...especially if arriving late at night or leaving the next day as it's right across from Central Station. Lots of activities for young people, but was made to feel welcome as an over 40 year old traveller as well. Good daily food deals, and very clean. Not a fan of having to pay for internet but the prices are actually very reasonable.
