Liked: I had never started in a hostel before so I didn't really know what to expect. Wake Up was brilliant and would recommend it to anyone staying in Sydney. Everyone I spoke to though it was the best hostel they'd ever stayed in.

Disliked: Christopher left no negative feedback.

Liked: Loved this hostel. Stayed just one night but would have happily stayed longer. Safe, central and great staff. Staff also dealt very well with late night drinkers so they didn't disrupt sleeping guests.

Disliked: wifi could have been free

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.

Disliked: The Wifi wasn't free and a bit hit and miss at times.

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. :)

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.
