Very basic room but clean and comfortable with towels and also and a decent size flat screen TV. Bathroom facilities clean and fine. On site café, paid laundry facilities on the floor and lounge and guest kitchen available....

Had a great stay at Wake Up Sydney. I'm a solo female traveller - this was my first stay in a hostel and I was very happy with the amenities. It seems very new - it was super clean, comfortable beds, bright clean large showers and bathrooms. Very secure. It's in a good location - across the street from Central...

Easy check in check out. Rooms are basic yet clean compared to other hostels I have stayed during my travels. The elevator is like your party machine! I like how it plays music and sets the mood. Had a great and comfortable stay here.

All facilities were clean. The staff had a very positive helpful attitude I liked the service of baggage storage on departure...that was very convenient. The coffee shop served the best coffee in Sydney.

Friendly staff, one block from Central station, clean bathrooms, small but good bedroom. Free wifi, fast free wifi when booked online. Free coffee (but was terrible), free drink (good). Couldn't have picked a better place in Syd.

It was the first Hostel I've stayed in in Sydney. I had 4 nights in a 6 dorm and booked 2 nights in a 10 dorm. They let me stay the 2 extra nights in the 6 dorm (for the same price). Excellent! I was on the 3rd floor. The rooms are really big with a high ceiling (not on...

I stayed at Wake-up! hostel for 3 nights. Good location - it is located just besides the train station and it offers a great shuttle bus system to the airport for 15$ (which is the lowest option you can find if you want to reach the airport using public transport or taxi). The rooms and bathrooms are clean and kept...

“I'd recommend to ask for a room that is not on the street side as you may hear the music coming from side bar at this night.”

“First floor is relatively close to the street and you can sometimes hear the music and noise from the bar downstairs.”
