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

worst hostel I been in Australia. Very dirty. It seemed like they had never cleaned the floor the bathroom. Still old toilet paper sticking the floor. Bed linen not clean, was used before by someone else. Open luggage storage only every 30 minutes.

Dear Guest, Im very disappointed to see that you didn't enjoy your stay with us and I'm shocked that you found our facilities so unclean. I can assure you this is not how we usually do things here, however please accept my apologies for all the trouble you have with your room. I can only hope that you told reception all of your issues and that they were immediately seen to. I hope the rest of your time in Australia is magical! :) Charlotte- Customer Service Manager
