Stayed one night - the people on reception where lovely. The halls need a lick of paint and the room was really hot but as long as the room is clean that's the main thing and my room was lovely. The roof top terrace is a nice touch.

Somehow, someway I ended up staying at this hostel for three months. With the initial intention of only staying a few weeks, this canadian backpacker became extremely comfortable. Base Central is exactly what you think it will be a hostel above a nightclub, right smack dab in the middle of the city. This place became my second home, the staff... More

Only chose to stay here as it was advertised as the party hostel in Brisbane. This is not true, there was only 1 organised night out all week! Also the hallways smell of urine. The attitude on the staff in reception was the worst I have ever experienced, they were rude and not helpful at all. The attitude on the... More

Stayed here for a few nights in an 8 bed dorm. The hallways all smell like urine, the kitchen is very dirty and unorganized. The bar downstairs was both convenient and and annoying. I could hear the music playing very loudly in my room till 5 am. The wooden floor makes a lot of noise when walking over it and... More

A room just about big enough for 2 people, they crammed 4 people in. Along with the damp smell that lingered in the building, the music was turned up full blast until about 3 am, showers were disgusting, kitchen was horrible. Never staying here again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never seen a hostel this dirty - finding a clean dish in the kitchen is basically impossible as they're all in the sink with the leftover food all over it. The luggage storage room is more than overloaded and the sheets in my bed were extremely dirty. All in all everything was very worn-off, dirty and disgusting, i... More

I stayed in the first floor, the room was okay for a dorm but that's about it when it comes to anything positive about this place. I could sing along to all the dance hits playing downstairs and with earplugs I could guess which song is playing from the bass. The bed practically moved from the music... I don't care... More
