Ok. I arrived 6th August (5nights) 6 Bed dorm. Got there and had my bus fare refunded from the airport by the hostel. Got a free drink voucher for the bar, which is where I headed as when I went to the room there were a couple of people asleep in the dark room. 2.10pm. Went next door to the scary canary by passing the Internet room and tour desk. Bar Empty but great bar Staff..Mixture of travellers and locals running and working in the pub. (Great food)
Well you will get out of this place what you put in. If you want to keep your self to your self you can do that in the hostel, sit on the couches or go on the net, or watch TV (foxtel) but tv is poor quality - breaking up picture all the time. Or you can party and have a laugh.

Kitchen massive and good. Free Iron downstairs. Breakie in the morning good $6.00 -raisin toast , toast, cereal , jam etc and lovely juices and tea and coffee. The bar at nght was brilliant when I was there, great bands and singers on and dance floor which we were using into the early hours. Monday karaoke was brilliant, finished at 12.15 but then one of the staff got some tunes on and we all danced like crazy people for an hour or two. Rooms . dorms ok, just the norm, bed sheets and blankets provided. Bathroom 1 per floor, 3 showers and loos, 4 sinks. Hostel in in great spot, round corner from darling harbour 6mins, 6 mins to George street (town hall). and 13 min walk to paddys market. Basiclly it was brilliant. Im heading back on the 02 sept just to have mad 6 days here. So see you there. Rhys.

Everything was good, except that i wish there was a wall power adaptor i can use in the room itself, instead of at the corridor.

I stayed in Base Sydney at the beginning of January after deciding to extend a New Year's Stay. It was a little pricier than some other hostels but I had heard good things about Base so decided to give it a go. I stayed in a mixed dorm with 4 others and the room was rather small and cramped, with a tiny window offering no view at all. The facilities, however, were all really good, the bathrooms were huge with powerful/private showers and the kitchen was well equipped (if a bit dreary down in the basement).

The staff were all really helpful, there was aways plenty of internet, and the adjacent bar was a little classier than your usual backpacker fare and had really nice, cheap food. Location was great, really close to ChinaTown and Darling Harbour, and noise was never an issue at any point, which I thought it might have been. Loads of travel and tour information. All in all an above average, clean, friendly hostel, which I would easily recommend to any backpacker.

Base Sydney is more than a hostel. It is clear, new and has a friendly atmosphere. Their rooms are large enough and well-climated.
