Really good hostel, perfect location, helpful staff and always something to do at side bar. Quite expensive but it is Sydney so that's expected! Would definitely stay here again!

Hi there, Thanks for giving us your feedback. Your review has been very helpful, we are looking at getting more power in the rooms as we speak :) See you next time Wake Up! Management


Great location for trains and china town, you can pretty much walk anywhere from here. I stayed here twice during my time in OZ due to location. They have lots of activities on to help you meet people but at the same time you can stay out of the crowed if you don't fancy partying. Great place to explore Sydney from. Great beds and clean rooms and facilities. Highly recommend it.

Hi, thanks for taking the time out to leave us a review! It's pleasing to hear you you joined in on the activities and met some fun people while you were here. Hope to see you again next time! Wake Up! Management


not a traditional hostel, not a hotel ....... a third way that may not match people's wishes. For certain things is futuristic, for others it misses semplicity. It seems a place for youngs who look for some night to spend in Sydney and make noise with fun, and not a place for travelers discovering the world. It depends on what one looks for: good for the first ones, not for the others.


Great place to stay. Excellent location and access to/from Central Station. If coming from Airport take the free shuttle!!! Only bad thing is that you have to pay for internet, that is odd. Lockers are handy after you have done your check out, paid $7aud for 7 hours locker. I would recommend this place.


Ehm, it's a great hostel, little pricey but that's Sydney I guess. Very friendly staff and they are very helpful. I can really recommend this hostel if you don't have a too tight budget.
