This is really good place to meet with everybody from around the world. The place is clean and nice, the staff is really helpful and friendly. Just my opinion, the room is really over crowded as so many people there sometimes they make some noise while someone is sleeping. But all over is a great place to stay and meet someone to hang out with.

Good hostel. Stayed there for 5 nights, very nice rooms but there are different 6 floors so doesn't seem to much of a hostel more like a big hotel. Kitchen not great but good hostel. Would recommend it.

The drain for the washroom sink was clogged. Also, the clock in the reception area did not reflect the accurate local time.

Amazing hostel where I met some great people. Location couldnt have been easier to get to from the airport and the free bus into the cbd stops right outside. Kitchen could have been a bit cleaner with more pans but other than that I cant fault wake up!

For a large hostel I was amazed by how it was so sociable yet quiet at night and clean. I had a great time and met people that I will be seeing again!

Our room was a mess and needed vacuuming and there were no bedside lamps. The kitchen was not very big and there were not enough plates, mugs, cutlery, towels etc. One could not regulate the temp of the water in the sinks for washing the face. The internet was expensive.

Hi There, Thanks for letting us know of your experience with us. It's very disappointing you had so many concerns during your stay. Our rooms are kept clean to a very high standard, if we have dropped the ball during your time with us then I must apologise! You will be glad to know that since our latest renovations we have bedside lights for our guests. Thanks again Wake Up! Management

This hostel is perfect when you are alone and want to meet people and party. Minor thing are the elevators that take ages and there are no stairs. Also free wifi should be provided for that price.

Stayed for the location with an early flight and its beside the central station, expensive but i knew that. I would recommend the hostel although my sister wouldnt but she had bad people in her room, its always pot luck whos in your room but thats the same anywhere.

I stayed in Wake Up the most compared to any other hostel when I was in Sydney. This was because I found the location great, the staff friendly, good atmosphere and good facilities. The rooms are a little small but that is fairly standard for most hostels. Had lockers which I always like for security and good clean bathrooms. Overall, good hostel whichI recommend to anyone.

The lifts are EXTREMELY slow to use and there appears to be no stairs to use as an alternative which is very fustrating!

Room was so small! Room is really expensive for what is. Kitchen is close for cleaning during lunch time and the girl from reception was really unhelpful with the shuttle bus booking. The only good thing is the location. Would never stay again.

Excellent hostel. Extremely clean, secure and good for partying (as it has its own club in the basement) as also good for resting as the rooms and room floors are clean and silent. Nevertheless considering its cost it should provide you with much more things: 1) wi fi 2) one plug per bed in the room 3) the plugs should be beside the bed or even inside your personal locker as expensive hostels have 4) beds should have a curtain and own personal light as prem hostels h have
