    Not the best hostel, though staff were excellent when we weren’t able to stay in the room we had booked. Location is great right in the centre of the city, and the private deluxe double we were moved to on our last night was very nice. The rest of the hostel is ok for a short stay.

    Very Good

    normally party place but not many people around due to Coronavirus, this suited us. Told to move floors as they were shutting due to not enough people, later found out it was being used as self isolation and we shouldn’t have been put up there in the first place! We were targeted in the tv lounge, very aggressive person shouting homophobic abuse - trying to cause trouble as we were just watching tv. Told staff who said they don’t tolerate that behaviour but not sure if anything was done

    Base is a good budget option. It puts you right in the heart of Auckland but is definitely a no-frills stay. When we stayed there then the kitchen was being upgraded so cooking was a bit complicated although accommodations were made. If your looking for a place to crash with friendly staff, this is your spot!

    Great location. Hostel is not very well maintained, toilet and showers do not work properly as well as lifts and room keys. Bathrooms and rooms need are in desperate need of a refurbish. A lot of long term guest were staying at the hostel during my stay, which created a different kind of vibe, very clique groups.

    Unfortunately my stay wasn’t very good. Very disappointed after working for Base in Sydney and definitely wasn’t impressed with the facilities in Auckland. Paid for a private room which was windowless and boiling hot. No pillowcases on pillows, door wouldn’t open properly so had to squeeze in and out of room. Graffiti all over the walls. Fridge but no tea/coffee or kettle facilities. Showers in the morning covered in vomit all in the cubicles. Keycard didn’t work to get in building.

    The most disgusting place I’ve ever stayed in my life. I’ve stayed in many hostels around the world and you obviously don’t expect ultimate cleanliness or comfort, but everything about this place is absolutely vile. The staff are horrible, the place is dirty + the kitchen didn’t work for the entire time we were there. Oh and the advert for the room said it had a tv and then when we got there there was no tv, just a bed in a box with no windows. Wouldn’t stay there again if my life depended on it
