    My stay at Basecamp was short and sweet. The communication was stellar, the vibe of the place was awesome, WiFi, kitchen, free food/hiker box, showers, lockers, bedding were all comfortable and clean. I look forward to another night and potentially being able to utilize the deprivation tank, sauna and bike rentals :))

    The hostel is located about 30 min from Downtown (by foot). The staff is very friendly and helpful, all doors to the rooms and the entrace door are protected with a code. There's a large kitchen and also a wood fired sauna. Washing machines are also available inside the hostel.

    I was only here overnight and had to check in late and leave early, but from my interactions with the staff and what I saw of the hostel, it was a great place to stay. The security was good and the people I did meet (briefly) were great.

    This hostel is very nice, the staff is kind and helpful. Also it's really easy get along with the other guests. My only suggestion for them would be to give at least a towel to the guests, most of the travelers staying in these places are backpackers carrying just a couple of things and that doesn't include a towel.

    The whole place needs a deep clean. Showers have mold. Hair, a lot, in the drain every day. Overall, good experience. A bus schedule would have been great.
