Bedding didn't feel or smell clean, my bunk bed was held up with masking tape (not very reassuring!), didn't feel clean especially in communal areas and kitchen is nowhere near big enough for number if guests. Liked the free breakfast and was quite cheap overall for a central hostel in Queenstown but I can see why!

Wifi in bedrooms was terrible. Also only 4 powerpoints index an 8 bedroom dorm was quite annoying.. Location and atmosphere were awesome though

Good location, hostel was kept clean and secure. They do charge for every little thing though. While things like wifi are advertised, they charge for it and many other amenities. Overall not a bad stay.

A true party hostel, so don't come expecting quiet nights. Staff that go out of their way to help out, a fairly cozy lobby and TV room for rainy days in, and clean and modern rooms.

Great location, good bed and lockers. Only a few washing machine and most were broken.

Very good location, very good and clean bathroom. The only thing is: the bunks are very shaky and making a lot of noise. It's hard to sleep.

A very large hostel. Has all the right facilities but the kitchen was so busy and cramped and all the storage for food was taken up. The beds were creek and the wifi was poor, even though you had to pay for it.

I hated the base hostels. I've stayed at over 10 hostels in new zealand so far and the base hostels were by far the worst. Will never stay in another Base hostel again.

Good times at Base Queenstown. Good atmosphere- met amazing people. Really really good service for the mot part- friendly staff. Not the cleanest but not too dirty either. I'd book here again!

Great hostel. Our room door didn't lock initially but once we let staff know it was fixed immediately :)

Cheap Hostel, what can you expect? Well, more than that, better invest two or three dollars more in a better Hostel, this one is not clean, small and has a overall bad atmosphere.

You get much better value for money staying at Nomads - there's nothing terrible about the hostel, but it's quite dated and in need of TLC. The kitchen is sparsely equiped and quite cramped, and the dining area far too small! Not a nice place to chill out at compared to some of the alternative hostels.

The TV lounge was closed. The kitchen was dirty and had everything that could possibly be tipped in it at the bottom. The bathrooms were unclean....had to wear my flip flops in the shower. Wifi was awful.

Staff is super friendly and very helpfull, its a nice place to stay if you want to party, the rooms and toilets are alwys clean. 2 bad things thow.. If you want to sleep it wont be possible before 4am ( bar just downstairs ) and the kitchen is always a mess ( too small for the amount of people and the fridge once you put something there ou migt not find it ever again )
