Average hostel that is centrally located in Brisbane that's the best thing going for it. I had no trouble at this hostel, however it is very loud and seems to be packed with people staying long term. Parts of the hostel are pretty rough and the facilities aren't the best, however I would stay again as it's a great location... More

Starting of on the good points the location of the hostel is just perfect! It is 5 minutes far from the mall and it is found just across the airtrain. The cleanliness of the showers, bathrooms and bed linen was good when compared to other hostels, BUT the reception was smelling too bad, we were also disgusted to sit on... More

Ok so having never stayed at a Base hostel before all I had to go on were the other reviews... which were pretty mixed! First impressions were that Base Brisbane seemed to come across as a half way house for ex convicts, homeless (long stays) and people recovering from drug and alcohol abuse.... I don't actually know if any of... More

I recently stayed here for 2 nights in a 9 bed female dorm and I was expecting it to be awful based on the reviews. But it exceeded my expectations! The hostel itself is very central and took about 10 minutes to get to from the transit centre. The room had a sink and had lockers so just needed to... More

The only hostel I've actually really liked since being in Australia. Having stayed at Nomads hostels previously, it was so nice to stay here for a few nights. Shame the wifi didn't extend to the rooms really but it was the fastest wifi I've had in Australia so far. Nice tv room to chill out in, and genuinely nice and... More

We stayed here for the final 3 nights of our trip travelling Australia and it was average at best. We paid a little extra for a double room with shared bathroom, the room was small but okay. The only problem with it was the DAMP in the room. As soon as you walked in the smell hit you. There's a... More

My partner and I stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm in November for 3 nights. The pros: nice people in our dorm, clean beds. The cons: 1 female toilet and a shower on our floor were out of order when we arrived, whilst another shower didn't turn off and the temperature control had broken. By the night we left,... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this hostel. I was worried it was going to be too loud and that toilet seats would be hanging off the edge of a toilet seat with only a drip of a shower. However the hostel was located in an old and very interesting building. We chose a private bedroom which was basic but good.... More

Stayed here multiple times on our travels and it was excellent. Reception staff are very nice but i bit strict on alcohol in rooms and music playing! But rooms are reasonable clean and large, the bars downstairs are brilliant for meal deals and nights out, especially DUB :) Locations is excellent to the airport and bus stations. The rooms are...
