The Base Hostel is a very big hostel. Some rooms have no windows at all and I felt a little bit like a prisoner.Some shelfs would be nice as well to store little things.
I booked a 4 female dorm,but it was occupied.They give me a single room for the same price. I enjoyed the breakfast . It was nice to stay there
I enjoyed staying at the globetrotters international. I was in a 8 bed female dorm and still there I had Privacy. A bathroom with a toilet was ensuite ,a little kitchen with microwave and refrigerator and even a small place to sit and talk to other backpackers. After beeing in Port Douglas I returned to this place and booked another 4 nights. I recommand this place
