Great Hostel and good location. Staff were helpful and there was always something to do at the hostel. Really enjoyed the large shower stalls!


Good location, clean, quite pricey. No free wifi or breakfast


Just your average big city hostel. Clean, good location, comfy bed. Not bad value for money.


The Wake Up centre has it all. Thank you so much for a fantastic time. The location was fantastic, straight up the road [35min walk) to the harbour. Staff could not do enough. Every day there were free trips or food. Happy hour at the club and something different at the club every night. Big screen tv, all travellers greet each other. We were the older couple but we met many young ones that has travelled on their own and were joined up with others. I would love my children to stay here x

Clean and well located hostel with many activities to offer. Unfortunately, though, most of the people staying at Wake Up! seem to be 19 years old or younger and just interested in partying with no respect for other room-mates.


Nothing bad to say about this place, out of the five hostels we stayed at on our Aus/NZ/Indonesia trip this was the best. It was also the priciest, but that's okay. The location is outstanding, it doesn't get any better than being across the street from the train station. Clean, friendly staff, friendly people, very safe. My favorite part was the quiet, the social area is on the second floor and there's no places for people to gather or party on the floors where the rooms are located. yay!


Hostel was ok. Rooms are small with no lockers and you cant open any windows. The bar is not bad but it is not cheap, it costs the same as any other bar/club in Sydney.

Hi There, Thanks for leaving us your thoughts after your recent stay with us, we always appreciate feedback :) Reception gave you an upgrade to a dorm with less people, hence why the room may have been smaller. My apologies if this wasn't preferred in your case. The room you stayed in has 6 lockers, one for each guest in the room. I'm not sure why it appeared we didn't have lockers. I hope we get to accommodate you again, next time in a larger dorm :) Wake Up! Management


Good location and good facilities. It's a big hostel, so good opportunities to meet people and Sidebar is a decent bar to start the night in.
