    The staff were SO awesome. They helped us plan our trip and everyone was super friendly. The location is great and the base is very social. It can get a bit loud at night, so bring earplugs just in case. I’d definitely stay here again.

    Cheap and cheerful hostel, great location, beds were comfy and rooms were clean. Kitchen was well equipped but could’ve done with a deep clean however was wiped down and cleaned daily. Staff were very nice and smiley, showers were some of the best I’ve had in a hostel.

    Despite reading the reviews I was a little worried about coming here. But I must admit it was really good, comfortable beds, kitchen is large and seems clean. Showers were hot. Definitely been at hostels a lot worst! Maybe in the summer months it’s not as good due to being busy. But for the price it was spot on, I would definitely stay again.

    Elevator, showers and toilets were out of order for the majority of our trip and we had to go to other floors to do anything Also everything seemed super old and outdated, but we still had a good time despite all that. Great people work there, a lot of fun at Hello Sunshine, and the front desk was eager to help us plan and get us places! Will defo come back to Base next time round

    I had the opportunity to stay at Base in different cities in New Zealand and always is a good choice. But unfortunately, the last time that I stay in Queenstown my bed suppose to be ready but someone else took it which make me lose part of my day but in the end, they fixed it and I spent a great time. Advantages to stay at Base: Free breakfast which is good, a variety of cereal, drinks, jam, butter, etc. and, the most important organized. Next to the hostel is one pub where you can find fun.

    Multiple floors, discounted drink vouchers available in the lobby, bar on the roof and a bar in the basement. Definitely a party hostel and it was hopping on the Saturday night that I was there. That being said, the staff were responsive and helpful even when I had questions for the front desk late at night, and it was convenient that you could buy airport bus tickets right in the hotel.

    Very Good

    Definitely prefer Base to Nomads in Auckland. Rooms much more spacious and have the lockers under bed for security. Base has the security card to get around so it felt safer there than Nomads. Only issue is the 2nd floor bathrooms females are not fixed, ask to stay on a different floor if you are staying longer than a few days. Apart from that staff very friendly and massive kitchen. Great hostel.

    The rooms are good but not enough power sockets. Downstairs social space and kitchen area is pretty bad. The entire place needs a good revamp but the bar has a good atmosphere and the people who work there are pretty great. Good location. You get what you pay for.
