First impression of a hostel it seems pretty nice, the receptionists were nice and friendly, they had …

After 24 hours and 5 meals on the plane, I finally landed safely at Sydney Airport 2 days later because of the time difference. I flew with China Eastern and had a 4-hour layover in Pudong, Shanghai. The flight was decent, and the flight attendants were nice. From Vancouver to Pudong I got to sit beside an Asian grandma who looked to be at least 80 …

City life

What a fun, hilarious week in Sydney!

We arrived and unfortunately wasn't in the nicest of hostels along Kings Cross, so managed to change after the weekend and spent 6 nights in a central one, with a clean kitchen and better atmosphere.
Its been 6 month away now, and somehow we’ve suddenly transformed into ‘long-termers&# …

Hyde Park and Botanical gardens

So it's meant to pour down later with thunderstorms around 4pm so we are going to go and view Hyde Park (there is so many English named places out here) and the Botanical Gardens. Hyde Park is a lot smaller than our Hyde Park but its a really cool walk, its basically a really pretty walkway with lots of tall trees around it and other plants. It was …

    I enjoyed staying in this hostel however the kitchen area is really small for the amount of people wanting to use it when its peak times.

    The rooms were decent, showers were clean. Very busy during dinner time, the kitchen seemed a bit small for the amount of people they have on one floor. Very convenient to have SideBar just downstairs. Convenient location.

    Das Wake up! Hostel in Sydney ist ein super schönes, sehr sauberes Hostel. Vor allem die Küche, in der es alles gab was man zum Kochen benötigt, hat uns alle überrascht. Ich bin mir sicher, dass ich auf meiner Reise nur selten in solch schönen Unterkünften bleiben werde..;)

    I stayed in this hostel for only 7 days , cause it was impossible to book some days more even at the day of my arrival.
    But never less they have a good team at the desk that helps u out in every situation.
    Although , the kitchen hasn't enough pans or pots and that was a major problem at many times.
    Also if you welcome backpackers , why are u one of the most expensive places to drink , cause that is what backpackers do when they arrive somewhere.

    But still i enjoyed my stay , cause i met dozens of people over there that became close friends

    Very good hostel, really friendly and the facilities and rooms themselves very nice and clean (well, until we wrecked the place anyway!) The bar downstairs is cool, food there also good although both not all that cheap. Would benefit from having free wifi I think as it's not that cheap accommodation to be honest.

    Wake Up! is a well conceived place but is it really worth the extra money that you pay to stay there as opposed to a bog standard backpackers? I would argue not.

    Cleaning standards were poor. No better than you would get in a cheaper joint and the kitchen facilities were very limited for such a large building.
