Liked: This place is great! Really easy to meet people in the social areas, and they also do free walking tours of the city and beaches, which loads of people go on and it's a great way to meet people. They had free goon some nights, free BBQ one night, rooms are clean and secure. Would definitely recommend.

Disliked: I think they need an extra elevator as it takes 10 minutes to get to your room sometimes! Also wifi is very expensive.

Liked: Location was gd, clean rooms and comfy beds.

Disliked: Bit of a money making hostel, they charge for everything possible, and all overpriced. Not the best for mixing with people either almost to big a hostel. Kitchen needs more utensils for size of hostel.

Liked: Overall cleanliness is OK. Rooms are nice and they have free lockers.

Disliked: Senseless announcements for things you can read yourself (activities, bar stuff...) early morning. Whole hostel is rather faceless and huge. And hey guys: for that price offer free Wi-Fi... that's embarrassing!

Liked: Als je aankomt in de grote stad, is het fijn om vanuit hier de basis te leggen voor de reis die je wilt maken. Wake Up hostel is de ideale plek voor beginnende backpackers om te zien hoe het reilen en zeilen gaat in een Australisch hostel. Erg schoon, vriendelijke mensen die je altijd wegwijs willen maken en goed gelegen.

Disliked: Het hele Australische karakter sprak mij erg aan. Ik heb er waanzinnig leuke mensen ontmoet.

Liked: compared to the previous place I was staying at this property is far nicer. The rooms are spacious and are not crammed with too many bunk beds. there are enough power sockets in the room to charge gadgets. showers and toilets were very clean and better than I expected!

Disliked: The lockable storage cupboards were in an awkward shape so you can't really fit everything in. just your valuables ext... the mattress was a little bit on the thin side but i could live with that.
