Wake Up! Sydney Central represents all that Sydney has to offer. It's modern, it's clean and it’s the hub of backpacker activity, right in the heart of Sydney. With a fresh layout, friendly staff and funky activities, Wake Up aims to offer an experience, not just a bed.
We’re located opposite Central Station which is also the first shuttle bus stop from the airport. We’re within walking distance of some of Sydney's main attractions; a few minutes from Chinatown, a 15-minute stroll from Darling Harbour and Sydney Aquarium, 20 minutes from Sydney Sky Tower and a 30-minute walk from the Opera House, Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay. Talk about convenient!
