I guess I will start with the positives although there aren't many...The Base is in a great spot opposite Central Station. The $7 big breakfast downstairs was also good value.
The fact that it was old didn't bother me too much, but the obnoxious backpackers yelling, singing, playing music, and skyping home at all hours or the night did! I know it is a party hostel but the noise was just excessive. I was in a 4 person dorm with a few friends (we paid the extra for less beds in hope of getting a bit better sleep). The rooms have absolutely no soundproofing - in fact hey have a 1 inch gap below the door and a pattern at the top letting in every sound.
One night I when out to ask the people in the hallway to be quiet and found a group of German Backpackers throwing goon sacks up and down the hallway and talking/ laughing as loud as they could. They didn't seem to care that there were other people in the hostel besides themselves.
Won't be going back there again that's for sure!
