    The staff are great, really friendly and helpful. Simon, Ash and Isaac always gave great advice which helped me plan my trips. There is always something going on here, the bar has such a good vibe and I have had so many good nights here especially at the famous Boozy Bingo which is a must do! Also could not of picked a better location for a hostel!

    I had scoured the reviews of all the hostels in Melbourne until I found the one I was looking for... The European legend of 'Ballsack' was believed to be repositioned in Melbourne and I found him. Like a unicorn pirate from space. Isaac (or ballsack) is a legging wearing incredible being that'll turn your life around. If you see him, do everything in your power to spend time with him. Isaac... I love you (but like, bro love, but like I kinda would) Xoxo

    I don’t expect a lot when staying in hostels but Base was fantastic. Clean with tons of amenities. Awesome price and location. It does get loud at night with the party downstairs and people in the hallways but that comes with hostel territory! Totally would recommend!

    Very Good

    01 Jun 2019
    Good and cheap location in St. Kildas. The rooms were clean, as was the kitchen area and there was multiple levels of security to get to your room. Only thing is, I was on the second floor and you could still hear the music/vibrations from the bar so if you’re a light sleeper that might be annoying but besides that it was a good stay
