Great place in specific is their location. Travelers vibe all around the place.
The toilet was horrible at the time I checked in, water in the toilet flush a bit slow in refilling. However when I came back at night, they already cleaned the toilet. Great!
The hostel has potential, nice reception area with a bar downstairs. - great for socialising. Bedrooms ok but depends which floor you are on. We were previously on floor 4 which needed to be cleaned, then moved to floor 1 which was much nicer. Although the bedrooms look clean on the surface, we found stains in our duvet sheets and when we addressed this with reception they informed us they only change the sheets and pillow cases and that the duvet covers don't actually get changed unless they 'smell really bad'. Regardless of the money you pay you expect clean beds, the hostel is in facts quite pricey so you expect cleanliness to be a priority. When the concern was raised the Manager did address the issue and it seemed that only certain housekeepers were cutting corners - this however isn't good enough for the amount of money you pay.
Hostel isn't actually that clean. Kitchen very small, not much room for food storage on the cupboard shelving and difficult to cook dinner due to the sheer amount of people.
Noise in hallway at 2am.
Ideal hostel for the location in the city considering how good it is! Added bonus of having sidebar that never disappoints.
Wifi was pretty slow at times.
comfortable bed， good location， near to the bus stop and train station
My partner and I stayed in the twin share private room with bunk beds, it was only about $100 (awesome price for private compared to other backpackers in the cbd) and it was modern, clean with a seemingly brand new tv...couldnt believe how much we lucked out... I stayed at a lot of different hostels in Sydney and this is by far the best.
security cant control the noise and alcho in the room after 10pm
all the hot girls
Wifi a bit annoying you have to pay but doesn't affect the stay!!!
Having to pay for Internet, not that cheap (but that's Sydney for you), not very clean or comfortable, confusing floor layout, nobody said we had to take our pillow case downstairs when.checking out ... made me lose time for nothing.
Cockroaches in the kitchen!, should have free Wi-fi and room not a twin but a bunk bed for two people
The location is convenient for the price.
I fell off my chair in the bar. I had had one drink and most definitely was not drunk. My foot caught in the chair leg and I was quite hurt. Rather than seeing if I was ok the bar staff immediately treated me as an alcoholic and kicked us out of the bar not even checking if I was ok. It was pretty distressing.
Staff can't be bothered to do most basic of things
I found the location excellent and Roy's Cafe attached provided delicious meals at reasonable prices
My room with shared bathroom was very basic, very tiny, and the blinds did not block out the light. It was a long walk to the bathroom. It was defintely overpriced
Very clean rooms and bathrooms, staff were all very helpful, good value for money in terms of both rooms and food and drink. A friendly atmosphere and a very fun downstairs bar with themed nights
Having paid for the wifi it was not always very good depending on where in the hostel I was. Could be improved.
Very clean and comfortable. Always meet nice people here
Paid wifi... Stayed with yound daughter..free wifi would be good to keep young daughter happy
The Wake Up ! Sydney is really well situated to visit the center of Sydney. The rooms are confortable and the bathroom is clean. I just ate breakfast, but the food is really good and you can enjoy the meal in a nice terrace outside
The air conditioning in the room was too cold...
Located right next to Sydney Central so ideal for Greyhound buses and trains. They have a café and bar that serve food. Security was very good, staff were very friendly, bed was comfy, bathrooms were very clean.
I was in a six bed dorm which was very small - not enough space for everyone to be moving around at the same time.
Internet is expensive
Great staff, location, activities and facilities.
I'm 187cm and my feet were at the end of the bed but not a major issue, just had to curl up :-)
Wake Up was fantastic. One of the cleanest hostels I've stayed in. Really well organised with heaps of activities every night of the week. Room were simple and small, but comfortable. The floor we stayed on was generally quiet. Staff were great. Excellent location!
Ive never stayed in a hostel before .Location was excellent and as I can't compare with other places I can't fault the place.
