Very friendly and helpful staff. But how can you place a hostel on top of a nightclub? Apparently the same owner too. So the place is not as nice thu - sat...

There are cats living in or around the hostel. They where not suppose to be in the houses or the dorms, but one got itself caught in one of the dorm rooms on my second night at this place. Important informations for people with allergies.

Damn those cats !!! Only one belongs to us and she doesn't go inside the others are strays from around the lodge and unfortunately some guests feed them and make them welcome. Not sure what to do about it except some in-human violence towards cats, never a popular move ...

Tiny rooms. Tiny kitchen, with kitchen fans (+) but not enough of anything else. Nowhere to sit with you laptop. Staff located in a house far from the hostel building. This seems to be a regular kiwi experience stop (or perhaps I was extremely unlucky?), I had to share this place with a group of restless kids (there is not much to do here, even less if the weather is bad)...

Mat on the floor was dirty and sticky(!). Vents in the bathroom covered in dust, can not have been cleaned for a long time. Beds extremely squeaky. Kitchen area ok I guess. Probably a nice stay for the party kids. Nice location with Fergburgers a cross the street.

Hi there, thanks for your feedback about your stay at Base. I see you stayed in a 6bed ensuite whilst here & had issues with the vents & mats. We do deep cleans of the hostel every couple of months where we attack all the little corners around the place. I will pass on your concerrns about the vents, but as you can imagine a lot of dust can be created by a property of this size. The carpets are getting replaced & we have just had them professionally cleaned. Thanks J Smith Base

Small kitchen without fans. Nowhere to sit with your computer. Two old and small refrigerators. They did have a freezer! Wifi only close to the reception. Wifi login did not work several times during stay. Toilet with shower in the room, that could be consider both good and bad. Room was big and had chair and table, still a lot of room for bags.

Dirty toilets. Small kitchen. Not enough space in refrigerators. Room only had 2 electric sockets, that was on 1 hour timer. Looks nice at first glance, but is not a nice place.
