Hostelworld says

Wake Up! Sydney Central was rated the 'Most Popular Hostel in Sydney' at the 2017 Hoscars and it's no wonder - this hostel is located just next to the Central Station, near Paddy's Market and Chinatown and a short walk from Darling Harbour. Travellers tell us they appreciate the hostel's 'very engaging community', with staff who 'are super friendly and go out of their way to accommodate you', hosting parties and events every day. We like their attention to little details, providing rare extras such as an on-site ATM as well as hooks and shelves in the showers.

Property Description

We’re located opposite Central Station which is also the first shuttle bus stop from the airport. We’re within walking distance of some of Sydney's main attractions; a few minutes from Chinatown, a 15-minute stroll from Darling Harbour and Sydney Aquarium, 20 minutes from Sydney Sky Tower and a 30-minute walk from the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay. Talk about convenient!

Wake Up! Sydney Central says

I think what makes us different is that we offer an experience, not just a bed. We add value to your room rate by offering free daily activities, including a city orientation tour twice a week, a beach walk, football outings and more. On check-in you'll receive lots of vouchers with discounts, including a free beer in our bar and free coffee in the café. In fact, we've got everything all under one roof: whether you want to do your laundry, get online, watch TV in our common areas, connect to Wi-Fi, prepare your own food, withdraw cash, book a tour, have a beer, coffee or a cheap meal, Wake Up is fully equipped to serve you!
We offer easy access to all of Sydney's main attractions. I recommend taking the short bus ride to the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, or over to Bondi Beach.
We cater mainly to 18-30-year-old travellers on a budget but all adults are welcome and we do cater for people with special needs or disabilities. Unfortunately, we don't have facilities suitable for children.
