Considering this is such a big chain of hostels, i was pretty disappointed with my stay here.The hostel is based in a good location, close to the bus and train station. I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm. The room was a decent size and had lockers, but was very grubby and dated. The mattress on the bed was... More

I stayed in this hostel on a Thursday for one night. I was speaking to the awesome staff (Chloe) and mentioned it was my last night in Australia. She made the extra effort to be nice and make my final night wonderful. The room was clean, tidy and easy to find. The Travel desk was amazing and lots of great... More

The staff here are super friendly and the building exterior is gorgeous turn-of-the-century architecture. Inside, there's a beautiful old elevator (gotta be careful though, if someone doesn't shut the doors properly on another floor, the elevator won't move...just how the old ones worked). I stayed on the first floor and it was quite comfortable - a little noisy while the... More

Am I the only one who enjoyed staying at this hostel? Great staff, especially at reception (Thank you so much for everything Chris!!) Cleanest room I have ever seen in an Australian hostel, nice bathrooms. A bit noisy on the first floor, because of the people just above me who were always walking in their room. Great location as well,... More

Room Spartan, dusty. Ceiling fan non functioning, entire floor un air-conditioned; stuffy and smelly. Worst thing; we were on the top floor and the noise from the club below was intolerable and on until four or five in the morning! The terrible nights sleep was made worse by loud tannoy announcements from 10 in the morning onwards. I have seen... More

This is the third Base Hostel we have stayed in during our Oz adventure and it is by far the worse! We're not fussy people (we've lived with lizards, lizard poo and endless bugs during our time) but this place was gross! The place absolutely honked of Damp! Really dark and dingy hostel that felt very unloved. Obviously a great... More

Maybe me and my friends were lucky, but we got a room with 4 other people and it was so quiet that i felt uncomfortable turning around. No... More
