I had heard horror stories about Base before from other backpackers and if am sad I say that they are all true. The rooms were dirty and unkempt. The bathrooms were nasty. And the kitchen was the most appalling thing I have ever come across in my time travelling through Europe and New Zealand. There was not ONE piece of clean cutlery to use. Not ONE Plate or pot. The sinks were over flowing with two day old dirty dishes. Hated this place.

The kitchen was filthy. Other guests obviously had not cleaned up at all .. But the management should have been more on to it.

The kitchen was small for,the numbers and badly equipped. Some idiot set off the fire alarm at about 8.30am resulting in the hostel being evacuated. Possibly to get up a friend who was late for the Kiwi Experience bus!
