Property Description

Clostest hostel to Roma Street Transit Centre, located directly opposite the Greyhound and premier bus station. Cheap and nicest meals in town, free wifi in areas, free activities in our bar at night. Base Uptown is Brisbane's 'flashpacker' accommodation. You can literally step off the train or bus, walk across the road drop your bags and then get straight into exploring our funky city!

We offer all our guests free travel advice, a free welcome pack on check-in and free activities, so you will never be bored! Breakfast specials for guests are as cheap as $5 for a bacon and egg roll and 20% of everything in the bar for guests as well. We are one of two unique locations to offer the infamous Byron Bay Coffee to our guests and local patrons. Wireless internet is only $4 for 24 hours or $12 for one week!

We run the below bar activities every week:
Monday - Karaoke Night
Tuesday - Musical Bingo
Wednesday - Quiz Night
Thursday - The famous Base bar crawl - starting at 7pm. Not to be missed!
Friday - Funky Fridays
Saturday - Super Saturdays
Sunday - Jabuhtu - live Jamaican music!

We are right on the edge of the massive 20 acre Roma Street Parklands. If they reckon that these are the lungs of the city, then you must be in the heart of it - and the guts of the CBD are right on your doorstep!

The river is only a block away, which means it's easy to jump a ferry (after all Brisbane is known as The River City), or walk across to the other side. Nearby West End is a hangout for galleries, museums and other alternative lifestyles.

You'll notice that safety and security are one of our big priorities - that's why we've installed a state-of-the-art fire safety system, as well as 24-hour guest access via security swipe cards into the building and all of the rooms.

Base Uptown has an array of facilities that ensure relaxed home-style comfort. A fully equipped self-catering kitchen adjoins the recreation room, complete with comfy lounges, board games, a television and an adjacent coin-operated laundry for the domestically inclined. All rooms come with en-suite which means no walking down the hall way in your towel!

The attached restaurant/bar the Guilty Rogue serves up great breakfast specials and is open for snacks, lunch and dinner. All guests get 20% off any purchase.The bar attracts a great mix of Brisvegas locals along with the international jet set. It goes off with groovy dance nights, weekly live music, sports events and music videos on the big-screens.

Budget travellers can choose from a great range of dorms, twins, or king-size hotel suites, all fully en-suited and air-conditioned.

" Extremely dirty room as most of the backpackers stay there long term. Smelly and hot. A window would be nice. "
