10 August 2014 Fiona would recommend this property

Liked: Great hostel! Clean, spacious rooms. very safe - a locker each in every room and the lift and front door require key access. Helpful staff at reception, loads of help available for booking tours etc. bar/club downstairs is handy! But entrance is very seperate so not to disturb residents if not interesting in partying. Laundry facilities. Have to pay for wifi but worked very well. Been in a few other similar rated hostels around Australia but none even nearly as good as wake up! Location also great, easy walk to centre. Very well managed - from someone that is not a fan of hostels I would definitely recommend this place!

Liked: Great location opposite central station. I purchased a "My Multi 1" pass which gave me access to both bus and rail networks. This made exploring the city and eastern suburbs very easy.

Liked: This hostel is in a really good location. to get to the Sydney Opera House you literally just walk straight down one big road(Pitt or George) and you're basically there! :) It's right next to the Central train station, so getting to and from the airport, or indeed other stations, is easy. Chinatown is just around the corner. The facilities and rooms seemed mostly new and clean. The hostel also has various things on for free throughout the week so keep an eye out for that :)

Disliked: I wasn't overly keen on having to share a bathroom between the 6 or so rooms on my floor(at peak times that's probably about 50 people). Fortunately it wasn't super crowded when i visited, but i can imagine in peak season it can be difficult to shower in the mornings :) WiFi should also be free in my opinion, but that's not a huge deal. :)
