    Loved the layout and atmosphere of this hostel. Rooms are spacious and there is a big pool and bar area. Unfortunately it rained while we were there but you could tell it would be a great time when the sun is out.

    Had an amazing stay at Base! Despite there not being too many backpackers (I went during the week but I’ve heard weekends have a lot more people), the whole hostel has a very communal feel and layout, so making friends wasn’t an issue. The staff were also all incredible, taking the time to interact and hang out with us whenever they could. Would definitely come back!

    I stayed there for a couple of days with some friends during our holidays, and everything was terrific except for the kitchen, there were no utensils at all. We had to buy plates and even knives and spoons because there was anything. My friends and I had to admit the showers were the best we have seen 😂. I really want to go back to this hostel but I wish they can improve the kitchen.

    Overall a pleasant stay - highlight was the amazing view of the ocean from our room, staff were pretty helpful and friendly also. The WiFi was rubbish/non-existent however with the scenery around us this was only a minor drawback

    For $190 a night you’d expect it to be clean hey? Shower full of old hair, old bar of soap, shampoo bottle and conditioner bottle. Under the bed I don’t think has ever been cleaned. Only plus was the view. Shower filthy, also had a toilet paper roll in one of the drawers that looked like it had been there since 95. Really no intention to detail for cleaning. Also don’t think the duvet was cleaned either,it felt sticky and sweaty like one would after a week of use in the tropics. Other staff A+!

    Stayed at Base for a night - Amazing location with a bus stop right outside the hostel. The rooms are ocean front rooms - staff were great! Only downside was the kitchen was pretty much out of use - filth

    Really nice to be on the ocean. However, found the hostel not as clean as others I've stayed in, and the bathrooms were located a bit far from the rooms (especially considering you need to walk outside at night to get to them).

    The bed wasn’t even cleaned and there was mould on the floor. While I was staying the place was dead, if they can’t keep it clean now I dread to think what it’ll be like when it’s busy!
