What can I say... It's just such a good hostel. Great location, best staff ever, nice kitchen, super clean toilets and a perfectly cozy lounge for people to hang out. And they got free wifi... Details in the rooms are very impressive as well - there are two plugs right next to each bed. Definitely very very considerate. Best hostel ever. End of story
Great location but the rooms are small. And it's not very good for socializing either. Stayed there for one night only tho
The room was very spacious and clean and I was lucky that I was the only one in the room the other night. However the kitchen was HELL - messy, dirty and a ton of things were broken! Base is really more like a party hostel so if you are in for a quite and nice place to stay, don't go for Base probably...
I love the kitchen the most - very very spacious and clean! Great location - 2mins walk to the beach and the Main Street . However the room is a bit crowded. All in all I like the hostel. It has a very cozy lounge for people to socialize as well
This is absolutely the coolest hostel I have ever stayed. It's modified from a real historic prison - I mean, come on, what else can you ask for!?!? Even tho its not very close to town( there s not much to see in town anyways...), its coolness makes it a total winner. The hostel is probably the only thing cool in chch really... Definitely stay if you have a chance!
I'm quite neutral about this hostel. What I dislike the most is its location - it's not close to town while there are hostels right across from the bus stations and i-site. The kitchen is not very good either - kind of dirty and you basically need to prepare everything yourself if you wanna cook a good meal.
Location is good. There are tons of flies in the kitchen. Some of the staff members are new and not that helpful. It's a beautiful hostel with a very pretty garden though.
I think the best things about this hostel are its character and location. It's sort of party-ish and very very close to Polynesian Spa, the museum and the Government Gardens. Might be a bit noisy during night time cuz the staff played loud music on the first floor till late at night.
