Lage perfekt. shisha bar, Kneipen,Restaurants,Einkaufsladen sky tower mit Casino um die ecke. durch die Größe ein wenig unpersönlich. gebührenpflichtiger Parkplatz gleich nebenan. Preise schwanken nach zeit und Wochentag. bei längeren Aufenthalt lohnt es sich in einem Wohngebiet 2,5 Kilometer außerhalb an der Wellington Street zu parken. dann mit dem Bus Nummer 20 in 8 Minuten rein fahren in die City. Haltestelle ist nicht weit vom Base entfernt.

The beds and pilows are terrible. They charge you for absolutely everything. Excellent location.

Zentrale Lage nahe Sky-Tower, Zimmer sauber. Großes Hostel, stark belegt. Nur wenige Duschen und Toiletten fur viele Zimmer. Schlechtes Frühstück.

Das Hostel ist speziell auf Backpacker ausgelegt und vorallem diesen zu empfehlen. Die Hygiene in den Duschen / Toiletten ist nicht so toll, kann man aber mit leben. Unterm Strich als "Startrampe" für Backpacker in Neuseeland zu empfehlen...

In diesem Hosel schafen sehr viele Menschen. Es ist eine Grossstiel Unterkunft ausglegt. Waschmaschinen sind gegen Aufpreis benutzbar. Eine Kochzeie ist ebenfalls vorhanden. Internetzugang kostet Geld. :(

I found this hostel to have no atmosphere whatsoever. The staff were very hostile and not welcoming. I was still charged the full amount for a room which was confirmed as cancelled with just a loss of deposit. The place seems extremely unorganised, especially the reception desk, luggage storage and kitchen, and I would not recommend Base Auckland to any fellow travellers

Check in staff incompetent. Slow. Put me in wrong room. Queue up to complain. Then put me in room with no free bed. No atmosphere here at all. Only stay here if everywhere else is full...

Staff is nice, our room wasn't good because it had no windows so it was really hot and claustrophobic. The bathroom on our floor was flooded and really small, not a lot of space for 5 girls to get ready. I've stayed here and at Nomads in the city and I have to say id go to Nomads next time as the facilities were a lot better and price was better! I paid $20 deposit only to be told that wasn't included in the final price of the room so had to pay $48 plus $20 for the key to our room. GO TO NOMADS

The hostel was ok but it lacked character and had a lot of recent graduates staying so it was more for students than travelers wishing to meet fun new people. The hostel staff where also a little brash, perhaps this was because seemed very over worked. This meant the serivce could have been better at times.

Bad equipped and dirty kitchen. Most of the stuff isnt working properly.

Great fun!

Sleeping in a room without any windows feels a bit like sleeping in a closet.. there was space though, and it was not cold, so that was good. Toilets and showers would need a bit of refreshing I think. Only stayed for a night.

Das Hostel war unserer Meinung nach zu teuer für das, was es bietet. Unser Doppelzimmer hatte kein Fenster - alles was sich darin befand war das Bett, ein Kühlschrank und ein kleiner Hocker. Man hatte keine Ablagefläche für Rucksäcke oder Kleidung. Die Küche und der Essbereich sind zu klein für die Größe des Hostels. Die Lage ist jedoch ausgezeichnet.

I booked on hostelworld.com and later tried to change my booking (which hostelworld states i could do up to 24hours prior). When I called Base to change the booking i was told I had to give 48hours notice. Hostelworld.com are therefore advertising and selling a service that Base do not provide. Big lines at the reception every time i went there too.
