          As a 20 year old who is finally starting to travel independently it is great to be able to spend so little to stay in a place that is extremely diverse and vibrant. There is a real 'cool' vibe about 'Wake Up! Sydney Central' and you feel relaxed yet excited when you first walk in. I was expecting some seedy backpackers place and instead found myself in a well located and well setup establishment. I would 100% recommend staying here especially as a young traveller or someone who wants to save a bit of money. Also, the little restaurant serves well priced and great food and the 'Side Bar' nightclub downstairs and the array of different music playing around the building is great (I am a hip-hop/rap fan so it was great to walk in on Friday evening and hear some old-school beats). Well worth it, great people to meet and I can only hope that there are more places like this around the country and internationally! THANK YOU!

          I am surprised that there was actually nothing I disliked!

          Great facilities with it's own night club in the building, clean room and toilets and generally spacious facilities; from the reception area, toilets, dining area, corridors to the TV area.

          $5 for a towel rental is a bit much and $6 to purchase a lock is also a bit much. All in all it was a great place to stay.

        • Single

          Wonderful attitude and consideration from the receptionist who upgraded me to an ensuite as I was travelling alone and was elderly(70)

        • Single
          6.2

          The place was great because there were a lot of opportunities to meet new people and that is something that is nice when you travel alone. For example the beachtour (although we did not do the actual walk) was nice to meet new people.

          The rooms are not so often cleaned. I guess only once a week. You are not provided with sheets and are not allowed to use your own sleepingbag. You have to pay for the internet. The people behind the reception desk are not so friendly. Only give short answers. There were no stairs! You had to wait very long for the elevetor, because there were only 2! The kitchen was very crowded and far to small for a hostel this size. Also very dirty!
