A very cozy and quiet hostel. Well worth a stay! The houses are very clean and includes all facilities you need- kitchen, bathroom, AC, TV, chairs and tables both inside and outside. We would have loved to stay longer! The only thing is that it is located a bit from the main street in More

The kitchen id disgusting! Who thought it would be a good idea to put a kitchen in the middle of a forest..? There are red ants everywhere so you can't leave your food in the kitchen without it getting swamped by ants. More

I wanted to check in at 11am. I went to reception and had to wait there 45min until I could check in, because there were so many people and not enough staff. That sucks. If there is more staff at reception, it is a very good hostel. Nice big rooms with bathroom. The Wifi is very slow and More

The staff were so friendly and helpful but the actual hostel rooms were so dirty. I think we just had a bad experience as our roommates were rowdy and had no respect for others trying to sleep. The toilet smelt very strongly of sick and probably 1 toilet between 21 people is not enough. More

Super friendly staff. Amaaazing location right on the esplanade and walking distance from almost everything. Beautiful city and great stay there. Only negative thing is that the wifi only works in the common area very far from our room - and it wasn't that good. More

Rooms are not very clean. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and there was mold on the walls and anywhere in the bathroom. Kitchen tables are still dirty when you go there in the morning for breakfast. Until now it was one of the dirtiest places I stayed at the east coast. It's not really really bad More

I liked it, Base usually is a good choice if you wanna meet people! The only things that bothered us was that we have to leave a deposit at the reception if we needed cutlery for the kitchen and there was always a really long line in the lobby, so whenever you needed something, it took More

Only stayed one night. Another place with a bad bar and a no BYO rule, they will take any alcohol left in the rooms so hide it. Lame policy of putting down a deposit for any cutlery needed, a PITA. Very clean and the beds and rooms were great though. Good enough for a one night stop-over More
