The facilities on offer are good, the rooms are tidy and the bathrooms were cleaned every day. It was a good location for St kilda beach etc, and only one tram to the CBD. Base is the perfect place for people who want to party!

Nice Location, excellent clean and security. Expensive for Facilities offered. People that work for accomodition have to be from different Country. It's good for young people. 6.5/10 total valutation.

This is a party hostel and it does what it says on the tin if that's what your after. Dorms are clean, beds are comfy and staff are helpful and fun. The breakfast isn't included and that seemed to be a common misunderstanding so maybe the wording on here needs changing. Good location for transport links and for the beach.

Stayed at XBase with my husband and we ABSOLUTELY LOVED it!!!! Everything was just perfect with our stay from the moment we walked into the hostel to the moment we left. The crew was awesome!!! Always smiling and it's clear they all love their jobs. Travel desk, reception, breakfast, bar... And big ups to Aydn (bar manager) and Will (reception). These guys rock! If you're planing to stay at XBase, do yourself a favor and DO NOT miss the Monday Bingo! We had SO much fun! Such a great night!!!

The staff were helpful and friendly, room was small, but the beds were comfortable and clean. Being a Saturday night and with a room facing the road it was crazy noisy, but you get that in St Kilda. The 'where's wally' party seemed awesome. Overall, a great place to stay.

This was my first time staying at Base. I loved it! After roughing it through Indonesia and the Philippines, it felt so good to do my own laundry and cook my own meals! The kitchen and laundry room were kept very clean. Base was the best party in town every night of the week! Sanctuary girls, don't worry - you'll get your beauty sleep on the 3rd floor and it's very quiet. 1 hour of free champagne every night for the sanctuary goddesses ;) HELL YEAH

Good hostel overall, and an excellent location. Our room was very noisy, as the only window opened onto the smoking area, which was very loud. Would be worth installing aircon to allow the window to be closed.

G'day! Thanks for giving us an honest review. We do have air-conditioning installed in every room and 24 hour staff to help with any maintenance issues however it seems that we failed to provide this during your stay, for which we are sorry :( We hope the next time you're in Melbourne you come back and give us another shot! Best wishes and safe travels, BASE MANAGEMENT
