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.

Liked: The cleanest bathroom I found in 3 nights stay in Sydney. This hostel is definitely has a vibrant character. I can really have a sound sleep here without any noise disturbance. 24 hrs reception is really good and the given brochure is very helpful for you getting know about facilities and shared area.

Disliked: Other than linen, everything is charged especially internet which many hostel offer free access.

Liked: Good location to the central train station, well run and friendly staff.

Disliked: very overpriced for the following reasons: 1. Internet is very expensive and over double the normal costs for Sydney. 2. You have to PAY to store your luggage!!! I have never been to a hostel like this, and is an example of complete greed from the hostel. 3. The rooms are tiny and claustrophobic for the price. You can head to Kings Cross and stay in at the Mercure hotel with en-suite for the same price.

Liked: The lift was safely secured with security cards only to be used by occupants.

Disliked: The lobby didn't have toilets for those waiting to check out, especially if there are going to be children staying - not very practical. The toilets available are only for guests (?staff). Besides, the toilets were not cleaned regularly with toilet papers strewn all over the place. There were no tables in the room to place drinks or food by the beds.
