Liked: was a very social hostel, lots of friends to be made and good if you travelling by yourself. the side bar is good value for food and happy hour you can get cheap drinks.

Disliked: Was very young! Dont go if you over 25. did remind me of an 18 year old party sometimes. I stayed in a 10 dorm so it was what to be expected... little sleep. i made some good friends there but would not stay longer than a few nights.

Liked: Felt the hostel overall was really good, having come from a very clean and immaculate hostel wake up had a lot to live up to. Found the party atmosphere brilliant and the social areas were really good. Side bar is brilliant to have on your doorstep and the hostel always has activities and promotions going on! Miffed I missed the footy last week!

Disliked: Only 3 plug sockets in the room of 10 people is not enough especially considering they were all in the same corner.

Liked: Wake Up! is the best hostel I've stayed in, the staff are very helpful and friendly and the location is great! Central station is a 2 minute walk away and it's walking distance to all the best places to go. Me and my friends spent nearly every night in Side Bar, they serve lovely food and we loved the live bands! We spend most nights dancing and partying away till the early hours. The dorms and bathrooms are very clean and the kitchen is good if your on a budget!

Liked: The breakfast was good value. The bathrooms were clean. It took a couple of days before the room were cleaned and the bins emptied though. Overall, it was a good place to stay. The staff were friendly. You had the option to have quite time by yourself or meet up with others.

Disliked: The internet should be free and so should the breakfast.
