Awesome location in the center of the city. This hostel has huge kitchen and lot of chillout areas. It is also very clean and tidy. They have cheap bar downstairs but it was very quiet at nights. Recommendation!

There are rooms with no windows!! Our double room / ensuite was very dirty (hairs, rubbish, ugly bed sheets). But the worst part is the club next door. Every night (ex. sunday) veeeerry loud music from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m.! Couldn't manage to sleep even with earplugs.

Booked a double room. Pros- good location, right in center of shopping area. Just down the road from the naked bus pickup point. Great tour booking service. Comfy bed. Con- VERY VERY thin walls. It was a converted office building so noise comes from walls, grates in the ceiling and near the window. First night was sex noises keeping us... More

Stayed in Base for one night. Booked a 6 dorm room with no windows (which is the cheapest) and room is quite spacious. However, top bed of the bunk bed is quite high, hence for people who are not so tall they might experience some difficulties when climbing up. Steps are too thin too. Bathroom was ok, not too crowded... More

Nice staff, especially Brian. :) The elevators are slow which is pretty annoying and one of the girls toiletts on my floor was broken for more than 10 days. Shower and restrooms were clean. The kitchen equipment is ok.

Nice place to stay, almost every day is some event where you can meet new people and get socialized. Room are clean, so do toilets and showers. Wifi is paid, but that's obvious. Also they can help you find a job and give some advices about trips around Auckland and around New Zealand generally. If you're in Auckland, go here.

Great hostel- affordable and super excellent location! It's right off the sky tram stop and has loads to of activities to keep you busy. Brian (Bryan?) at the front desk was hilarious and lovely (also helpful- that too). Definitely recommend the Base and will come back soon! Xxx

Stayed at base one night, and we will definitely come back. Stayed in a private room for a great deal with clean linens, soap, shampoo... Great location, comfy beds, clean rooms, and excellent value. Also, Bryan was friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome. :]

If you want an average priced hostel to stay in for a night or two by all means stay here, it's clean enough and well located. However be prepared to spend at least an hour checking in, and another checking out. If you need to ask reception anything in the day make sure to allow at least half an hour... More
