Liked: Clean modern hostel.

Disliked: More double rooms available. Was in an 8 bed dorm where everyone was drinking in the dorm each night being very loud and inconsiderate. They wouldn't move anywhere else. Not an enjoyable stay.

Liked: I really love this hostel. It's a stones throw from central station, which makes it a doddle when you have all your luggage! Nice and friendly staff, I dealt with Aaron over the phone to arrange prepayment, he sorted it out gladly! The staff at check in have always been super nice and helpful and willing to answer any questions I've had. The premises is spotless. The beds are comf. And the residents are mainly quite fit!!!

Disliked: Check out is at 10AM. Not uncommon, but they are missing out on a load of money by not offering a late checkout for an extra $5.

Liked: It is opposite the train station and close to a couple of sights, so great location. The hostel looks very nice. Friendly staff. They have small dorms and also dorms for only women.

Disliked: - You have to pay for wifi. - When I arrived, the bathrooms were very clean but it looked like they were not cleaned a couple of times a day, because more and more paper was on the floor and spots on the toilet sometimes were there 16 hours later. - Check out is at 10 am, which is ok. But if you want to store your luggage because your plane is leaving in the evening for example, you have to pay for the storage. I had to pay 12 dollars for storing my luggage for 8 hours.

Liked: Clean, located next to central station makes it super easy to get to. Some of the staff are super helpful and friendly.

Disliked: A couple of their front desk staff were super lazy. They have a luggage room, but the staff try to tell you that it's full and get you to pay for their lockers instead. when I asked to leave my bag in the luggage room, twice I was told it was full. It wasn't, they just didn't want to make the short walk to unlock it for me. I know this because while waiting for my friend to get change for the lockers another staff member came to open the luggage room for another guest and the other staff member let me store my bag in the luggage room. There was plenty of space! Checkout can be hectic if you leave around 10am.

Liked: simply one of the friendliest, most modern, best located hostels with probably the best atmosphere around sydney. stayed there around new years what made it pretty expensive (about 40AUD/night) but it was totally worth it. rooms and lounge was clean, staff super friendly, shower facilities very good. the hostel has it own pub around the building and the train station is about 5 minutes away. about 10 minutes to chinatown.

Disliked: it's a little bit far from every other outgoing part of sydney.

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay at the wake up. The hostel is very safe, modern and clean. The location is great right next to central station. I arrived early in the morning after a long flight from Germany and even though the check in is at 10 am I was allowed to go to my room right away. That was pretty awesome. All the staff was very friendly especially Richie from the reception. If you have a question go and ask Richie. He is a very helpful and fun guy. The wake up also offers lots of activities for example free city tours or free beach tours. It is worth the money and I am definitely staying here again.

Disliked: Johanna left no negative feedback.
