    Great hostel before and/or after your Whitsundays ! Great location, decent beds, clean facilities. Very good value for money. Staff is helpful and you can park you car there while you’re away for just 6$/day 👌🏼

    First day when we got here, me and my partner got upgraded to a private room which was great and a great room with kitchen and bathroom. It was also very clean. We did the WhitSundays trip and stayed the night after too in a 6 bed dorm. The dorm was clean but the bathroom in the dorm was vile, looked like it hadn’t been cleaned for years and was full off cockroaches, had to shower in the campers facilities!!

    Very Good

    Big place with a good bar next door. It's a really good location and cleaned thoroughly. We booked a private twin room, and it was was only separated from the adjoining unit by a door. So we could hear every single thing from next door, and unfortunately we were next to a very loud American girl and her boyfriend. Apparently there's a pool and daily activities, but we weren't made aware of either. Other large hostels provide you with a map and timetables, it might be nice for Base to do this.

    It was not well equipped- only 2 mugs and teaspoons in the bungalow. A toaster bit no plates, bowls or glasses.... there was a bedside lamp but without a globe in it!

    Bar manager and security are rude and patronising. Bar manager Gemma swore several times at us which is clearly unacceptable. The security also approached us in an aggressive and rude manner. When we tried to speak to the hostel manager they refused to tell us who it was and told us to go and ‘have it out with Gemma’ which seems ridiculous when they knew we were nevergoing to start an argument. We were going to stay an extra night but decided to stay down the road due to this.

    Horrible room, torn curtains, ants, no soap or bathroom bin (in the girls 4 bed.) Would not recommend this hostel. The kitchen was absolutely filthy - I could not cook there. The room was not clean either. Worst hostel experience on the east coast so far. I cannot understand why it is rated so highly. I left to stay at a different hostel.
