The building is really well located for exploring the city and the staff were friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean but a bit of a walk from some rooms and some girls complained they had to go to a different floor just to take a shower. This didn't affect me as a guy, as I stayed on level 1.... More

Hi 223alexc, Were very lucky to have this great location which makes it super easy for new guests to make there way around Brisbane. We also offer a free walking tour every Tuesday @ 2:00 pm showing off all the best parts of our beautiful city. We apologize for the inconvenience of having to walk to the 2nd level bathrooms...

The reception staff have got to be the worst staff I have encountered in 2 years of travelling. There is a young guy working at the desk who is the most obnoxious arrogant people iv met. We arrived in a group of 4 and the reception guy made such a big deal that we were paying separately then one of... More

The hostel is in a great location, right outside the central train station. This makes it easy to get to and from the airport. It is also located central from the centre. The hostel was being renovating the bathroom on my floor so had to use the bathroom on the floor above which wasn't a problem. If you like having... More

Stayed over the long weekend, had a great time! Staff were helpful, rooms were clean, would recommend to anyone staying in Brisbane. Make sure to bring your passport as they will not accept any other forms of id.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Base Central for just one night. A travel agency had booked it for us in our East Coast package. When we arrived there, we were supposed to be in a 8bed dorm but decided to upgrate to a double room for the night... We paid an extra 17$, so we were expecting good services... More

When I was there they had such cheap prices if you stay for a whole week so contact them directly rather using a booking agency. The rooms are large and the downstairs bar is ok. The only problem is the people. The people who stay in city hostels are far more unfriendly and treat the place awfully, but I guess... More

Had a great time at Base Brisbane Central recently. Great location just near Central made it easy for us to get around Brisbane. The staff were really helpful when we checked in and gave us good tips as to where to eat and good pubs nearby. Bit noisy at night, but generally a fun atmosphere!

So this was my first stop in Australia, location wise it's perfect, I stepped off the plane, onto a train and right into the doors of BASE, checking in took a long time and even though I asked for 2 nights I was only given 1 even though I asked three times if she had booked me in for 2... More

I don't have much experience with backpacker hostels, but this one definitely isn't up there with the best I've stayed at. It is located just opposite Central Station, so the location is excellent. The shared facilities were quite low rent - eg. shower pressure was quite low and the hot water wasn't very hot; and the interior decor felt as... More

Let me be honest about this place. When I travel around Australia and throw myself head first into the most fierce mosh pits that a rock 'n roll / heavy metal concert can offer, all I need afterwards is a roof over my head and a bed to collapse onto from sheer crippling exhaustion. You'll get just that here. A... More
