Liked: I've been staying in hostels for 7 months (Canada, USA, 6 countries in South America, Australia, New Zealand) and this was the BEST so far! I've stayed in some real duds (Hello, Bolivia) but prior to embarking on this RTW backpacking trip I've stayed in some nice boutique hotels as well and Wake Up stacks up well against some of them!

Disliked: There was a locker in the 4-bed dorm but not in a 6-bed dorm. The 6-bed dorm was the same size as the 4-bed dorm - just with an extra bed where the locker had been. Other than that, 5 stars out of 5.

Liked: The hostel has many amazing qualities. Great location. Clean. Friendly and helpful staff. The travel up staff were amazing too and helped us book our East Coast journey. Side Bar is great for meeting people!

Disliked: However the kitchen is incredibly small considering it holds over 500 people and for the price we're paying I think it's unfair to have to pay for a towel and wifi.

Liked: Location is very good and is kept clean very well. Staff is always happy to help. Very little noise, so could easily sleep well.

Disliked: There is no free wifi which should be included in the price, it's not a cheap hostel at all so wonder why they left out this service. There are loads of travel agencies around the corner that have free wifi tough. Room could've had more plugs. We now had three plugs for 6 people, some of my roommates were in the room all day using their ipads so plugs were kind of occupied at times. Again you can easily charge somewhere else but it would've been nice to charge my phone at night when i was in anyway.
