Very average hostel. Good location but that's about the only thing going for it.

Great fun party hostel with cheap bar and lots of fun people. Rooms are perfectly good with lockable draws to keep stuff safe. Bathrooms are good and are cleaned often, great location close to the beach and a short tram from the city centre.

I was soooo disappointed with Base - the pictures listed are SO inaccurate and clearly taken years ago, the place is so much more run down than that. Sticky floors, massive stains in the carpet and on the walls, grubby sheets. The atmosphere is rubbish - they run events every night but they're far from inclusive, and very cliquey. On Friday night the music was SO loud and ear plugs didn't even help. If it had been a cheap hostel I wouldn't have minded all of this but its ridiculously expensive!

Clean facilities. Nice, large room. Quite a party hostel, staff knocking on your door every night to get you down to the bar, seemed quite judgy if you didn't want to go. Nice kitchen, good location, good wifi.

It is a Party hostel. If you want to do partying this is a good place to stay. There is a bar on the ground floor and there is an event every day. But I didn't know. That's probably why there is no relaxed common room. The kitchen was pretty small but the location was next to the supermarket and to fast food shops.
