Liked: The travel desk is really handy to book trips and the cafe downstairs does really nice food at a fair price.

Disliked: The bathrooms could be cleaner and I didn't really enjoy my stay because about 25 people had crammed into my room to have a party. There are social areas for that! Security did eventually come round and moved everyone on but by then I was angry and people staying in the room continued to make loads of noise afterwards. I did complain the next morning and I think the hostel handled it really well by offering a free upgrade and a free coffee. I had intended to cancel and go to another hostel but after that I decided to stay. It wasn't the hostels fault after all but there should be more monitoring of that kind of thing. Keep the party in social areas people some have early flights the next day!

Liked: Great hostel, very friendly staff, clean rooms, comfy beds and lockers. 6 bed dorms are better than the 4 bed dorms as you don't have your own bedside light and power plug in the 4 bed dorm.

Disliked: No free wifi.

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.
