Small, two bunk room quite far from the toilets and showers (communal for the entire floor). Seems to be an office block. The beds were clean but uncomfortable and small. Bring an extension cable - only a couple of sockets, which won't reach the top. They did have under bed lockers which were useful, but that was about it. Have... More

Base was our first home in New Zealand, we arrive early in the morning and they were very nice to us. What we like the most were location, is in the middle of everything and the staff, they were always keen in to help and answer all our doubts. The rooms very good and the bathrooms clean, but the kitchen... More

This hostel has some really stella points, for example the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, the showers and the rooms are clean. We haven't regretted spending the extra dollars on the job search membership as it has really helped us first time travellers hit the road running in terms of setting up a bank account and tax numbers, and...

Base was my first destination in Auckland once I arrived in New Zealand. The location is awesome, can't argue against that. Just when you arrive and are looking for first orientation you might be better with some more familiar hostels, but that's up to everybody's preferences. The hostel is huge and so there are heaps of people, so you are... More
