So many hidden costs like breakfast was a bowl of cereal for $5 and washer $4 then drier $4, and the price of a 4 bed room was so high in the first place, and the wifi is only free from 7 to 7 when you're not going to be in basically. Atmosphere of a hotel (and price) with a bar that seemed ok but lots of big groups on some kiwi travel thing that stick in their groups, and lots of French people. Never got any of the promotional stuff.

Not bad all in all, but nothing special. Can hear the music from the bar downstairs really clearly.

Base is a pretty basic hostel. It has a bar downstairs which serves some pretty cheap beer and liquor. However, the hostel is mostly filled with kiwi experience travelers and they tend to stick together mostly. Not the best atmosphere but it does have solid facilities.

Won't stay at a Base Hostel again, they charge for absolutely everything and it's all about money. Even the pub crawl finished at their own bar which really sucked. Wifi is only free in reception area from 7am-7pm. Quiz night was pretty fun but again, when it finished the stuff didn't talk to us or give us tips on where to go.

staff were friendly and helpful, roomso were clean and spacious, although they get really hot at night there was a dehumidifier in the room. the biggest issue is the kitchen, for the number of people using it there is nowhere near enough facilities. we waited half an hour just for a chopping board and the sinks were constantly full of people. foe the amount of people the cooking/kitchen facilities are just not up to scratch

The atmosphere and set up were great. Awesome common areas, couches, kitchen etc. Storage and layout in the dorm rooms wasn't very good and you have to pay if you want to use wifi in the rooms. Free wifi is only in the lounge from 7-7. Other than that it was pretty good and the location was excellent.

Although quite big, this hostel is a nice place to meet other travelers and especially to enjoy the nightlife with the hostel's bar and nearby clubs. Concerning the facilities, internet is to pay as an extra and quite slow, and the water takes systematically 10 minutes to get warm while taking a shower (at least on the male side), also lots of rules posted everywhere and no alcohol outside the bar. Would still recommend.

If you've stayed at a Base before, this one isn't much different. Plenty of people around to chat with. The basement bar was lively. They run different events nightly, like pool night, trivia, pub crawl, etc. It makes it easy to meet people if that's something you're looking for. Otherwise, pretty standard for a big hostel. Rooms are small, but it was never an issue. Same with the kitchen. It'd probably be my second choice after the YHA a block away.
