10/10 Exceptional

I wouldn't want to Wake Up anywhere else
I had an excellent stay from beginning to end. Upon check-in, I was greeted with a smile and friendly conversation, and had the activities, facilities and key card explained to me. When I checked out, I received a friendly farewell and was asked if I needed my bags to be stored. I was pleasantly surprised with the condition of my private double room, complete with desk and television. However, the windows were unable to be opened to allow air circulation, and I could not locate an air conditioner. It was lucky therefore that I was staying during the colder months, so this didn't bother me, but I hate to think how stuffy and hot the room would become during Summer. Furthermore, the foam mattress was uncomfortable, the walls paper thin, and loud noises from the street could be easily heard, and sometimes made it difficult to get to sleep. This is to be expected though from a hostel, and I was happy to overlook this. I am looking forward to choosing Wake Up Sydney when I next travel, because there is no other place where I'd rather Wake Up. Thank you for such a lovely stay.
