Rooms are not very clean. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and there was mold on the walls and anywhere in the bathroom. Kitchen tables are still dirty when you go there in the morning for breakfast. Until now it was one of the dirtiest places I stayed at the east coast. It's not really really bad but there are much better hostels for the same price. Staff is friendly and location is good.

Dear Guest, Im so sad to see your review as this doesn't reflect our usual high standards of cleanliness. Please accept my apologies for this. I hope you do decide to stay with us again in the future as we would love the opportunity to prove to you we really can do better. I happy that you at least found our staff friendly and the location to be good. :) I hope you have an awesome time in Australia, Charlotte- Customer Service Manager Base Airlie Beach Resort


I liked it, Base usually is a good choice if you wanna meet people! The only things that bothered us was that we have to leave a deposit at the reception if we needed cutlery for the kitchen and there was always a really long line in the lobby, so whenever you needed something, it took forever. Also I'm used to friendlier staff at Base. But other than that there is not much to complain about :)

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback we really appreciate this as its a great tool for seeing where we do wel land where we need to improve. We do require deposits for cutlery, keys, hairdryer, iron etc. as we have found from past experience that people don't bring them back or damage them and this is costly to constantly be replacing. We have had some staffing issues recently which might explain the long wait. Please accept my apologies for this! :) Base Crew


Top location with extremely clean rooms and lovely staff - highly recommend
