    Base is not a hostel it’s a home for 3 months. Stu you will always be my favourite manager. But Isaac always geta me with those sexy leggings. Lisa is the best promo girl in St Kilda. I will always remember our solo nights, 1 girl and 2 Scots. The bar staff are all legends who will keep that glass full and the party going. We’ve had some fabulous nights, winning boozy bingo, being the drunk girl on blind date, and watching staff get tattoos and sumo wrestle. We’ll see you soon Base Legends!

    My check in was smooth, friendly and informative of the activities happening within the hostel. I only stayed one night as I had planned to do the great ocean road with friends but the car we had hired via eDreams flopped and we needed to hire another car. James from happy travels within the hostel helped me organise a car for 24hours within 10mins! AND it worked out cheaper than my previous car. Thank you again James!

    Base Hostel is a great place to meet people and in a fab location. Was pleasantly surprised by how clean it is! Bingo on a Monday is so fun but the other events didn’t seem as popular. Thanks!

    Good location, has everything you need and expect from a hostel. Plenty of activities to get involved in eg. Boozy Bingo! Rooms were grand - but one bathroom for 10 people can be a little busy at times!

    The location is awesome - you're only about a 5-minute walk to the beach and a block away from the main strip of bars and restaurants. But be warned that this is a party hostel so if that's not what you're looking for then I would recommend staying away from here.
