Great location and value”

I stayed at Wake Up Sydney with my wife and grown (23yp) daughter. The location was great, next to Sydney's Central station. Made it very easy to get around. The facility had everything you need for all. Cafe, bar/club downstairs and plenty of activities to keep everyone busy. Traveling with an older child made the location and facility perfect. If I were traveling alone, I might have chosen a place that was a little more quiet and less centrally located.

I’ve Returned”

I stayed at this hostel twice now as I vacationed in Sydney. I have to say, I had an amazing experience both times. I came as a solo traveler the first time and found this place as an amazing place to meet others like me, and make my stay feel like home, and like one long party. Everyone’s so friendly and the place is clean. I returned with my other half, because I had such a great experience. This time we got a single double bed room, and had another great experience. Whether coming single, or with a significant other, this place is located so conveniently and worth every penny. Thank you for the hospitality!

Good choice for cheap stay”

Staff: When I checked-in, staff asked me to pay the room charge and deposit, but I had already fully paid via Agoda. Traveler need to pay attention. I pointed it out and they refunded the over-charged fee to me. Facilities: toilet is as more clean as I expect med before. I stayed in 3/f. There are one shared toilet including 4 bathing rooms with whole level customers. The bathing rooms are big and have two hair dryers. There are no lock in the lockers in rooms, you better bring one for your own use or you can purchase from reception. There are many sunblock lotions or spray provided in reception for free. There are a kiosk for travelers to book their local tours. Pro: you can meet travelers from different countries. Location: it is exactly next to Central station for 5 min walk and close to China Town. I chose this Hostel because I have joined two local tours which the meet up point is in wake up hostel.

Great hostel, amazing people, even better staff”

From the moment I walked in the door, I knew I made the right decision to choose Wakeup! The establishment is ran like a hotel with a proper hostel vibe. They went beyond exceptions in order to follow the protocol for COVID; regular cleaning of all areas in the kitchen, bathrooms, dining area, common area, sanitise stations throughout. Exactly what you want to hear and see with everything going on in the world right now! The staff were amazing at making my girlfriend and myself feel welcome here, going beyond what was expected to ensure we had a great stay. Shoutout to Dev, Bea, Moe, Alba and Josh; absolute legends! Couldn't recommend Wakeup enough for first-time or long-time travellers! 5*

Clean, well-appointed, affordable party hostel”

Stayed here with my best friends thinking we'd still be able to party like we used to back in college. But boy, I was so wrong! We're only in our late 20s by the way and this place would have been the perfect choice 10 years ago. To be fair, I had no problem with the hostel - it was clean, functional, and well-maintained. We stayed in double and triple rooms to avail privacy but the kids were too loud so if you want to get good sleep, better look elsewhere or get free earplugs from the reception. There were also nights when there was puke in the elevator and kids doing "things" in the common bathroom. Haha! We don't mind, all part of the fun, I guess.

Can’t give an accurate rating as only saw the foyer and going off online details.”

Didn’t get to stay as my daughter is 17 years of age and they’re a licensed premises which apparently is in “the fine print”? I don’t understand how this is even an issue when 90% of accommodation IS LICENSED and provides alcohol in your mini bar AND allow children under the age of 18 on the premises??? She was accompanied by ME the ADULT. Perhaps they had issue with my age and had to come up with an excuse? Very annoyed as we had to then FIND last second accommodation with a lot of major events on in Sydney and a lot of places booked out.

Clean and conveniently located”

Pros: - Walking distance from most iconic tourism spots - Clean beds - Provides discount coupons for cafe and bar on ground level of hostel, which is especially useful for those with early flight to grab some breakfast - card access to get to the floor your room is located so security is good Cons: - May be difficult for light sleepers to sleep at night as the sound proofing is poor so there will be a loud bang whenever adjacent rooms open or close the door - Does not provide water dispenser - Provides locker for valuables but not lock, so you will have to bring your own lock

THE KITCHEN IS FAR TOO SMALL FOR THIS NUMBER OF PEOPLE. Other than that, I had a lot of fun at this hostel with all the activities. Some free stuff throughout the week and an amazing club downstairs. The common room is really big and welcoming and the hostel people are a whole bunch of friendly backpackers.

The hostel was located about a 2-3min walk from Central station, and the train to airport only take 15-20mins. The hostel condition is good and clean, convenient as there a a lot of shops and different place of interest nearby as well. Just one little suggestion is perhaps they can have a hair dryer for the male guest as well.

They are not prepare for cold (no blanket no heat) so i had to sleep with 2 sweaters on (the roof is super high, maybe if you go to a crowded room you´ll be ok but i was in a single one and it was freezing). There were bottles underneath my ed -and they weren't mine. Its a party hostel, full of teenagers running around. Make sure you stay in an upper level because i was on the third and i was sleeping above the entrance of their club (not recommended if you wake up easily)
