The Wake Up! Story


How it all began

Opening in 2002, Wake Up! Hostels is a young, fun and trusted accommodation brand forming part of The Millett Group. What started as an 8 storey building in Sydney CBD has now evolved into three locations - Wake Up! Byron Bay, Wake Up! Bondi Beach and Wake Up! Sydney. With a focus on social interactions, it encourages travellers to connect with each other through activities such as complimentary yoga, personal training, wine and cheese, walking tours and more.

Wake Up! Hostels is more than just a bed.






Our mission

What we're about

Wake Up! is a social hostel that encourages travellers to form lifelong bonds. Whether it’s being bunk mates, finding some beach walk buddies or being a part of the party-loving Side Bar shenanigans, Wake Up! is an experience that gives you the power to connect.

We love sharing your travelling tales so if you've got a story to tell, let us know!
