23 February 2015 Mike would recommend this property

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.
