Stayed at the Base in Taupo and multiple occasions, pretty good(Depending which room you stay in). Base Queenstown? Comfy beds. Base Rotorua? Not so great...
Not only was the bar extremely noisy with horrible music into the early hours of the morning(as it is with all Base hostels) the place was infested with cockroaches. I could mention things like lack of this or that in the kitchen, or $28 for an 8 bed dorm, but the real turn off here is the cockroaches. They were everywhere. For sure the dirtiest hostel we've stayed at on our worldly travels thus far. The staff was pretty good though.
