    I've stayed here happily on and off over the last year but this time round it's been real nice to see the attention to fixing things and renovations during quieter times. Always a pleasure, I'll be back again in summer!

    This is by far the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in and I got to meet the most amazing people. It was also very refreshing to walk in and see how clean and cozy my room was. I want to give a massive shoutout and thanks to Simon, Payhton, and the housekeeping staff. They all go out of their way to keep guests safe and you’ll always see them with the friendliest smiles to welcome you home!

    Unfortunately, some hostels in the area are really run down at the moment with no staff - they don't really care and things are really dirty, Base is still super clean, with 24 hour reception which I really appreciated when I couldn't get in late at night, and they still help you out loads.
