Think I made the wrong choice picking Base because I'm a grumpy old bugger but all the social interaction that's available in the bar/common areas seem to be really good for the more lively of people. The shower was pretty awful if I'm honest, not overly hot water and the water pressure was terrible. I felt that the hostel could have been kept a little cleaner despite daily housekeeping. Having to pay for WiFi was a bit of a pain, especially as even the 'premium' service was intermittent.

Party hostel. Hope you like kids drinking and smoking. But the staff were lovely and the en suites were great.
