    Superb

    Stayed in both a private and a dorm. Dorm was far nicer and way better value than the private which had no air con or en-suite like the dorm. In general though, great location and busy/lively hostel with really friendly staff :)

    Had a great stay in Base Sydney. Staff were really friendly, there was loads to do in the area and there was a bar attached was did good deals on drinks. Bathrooms and bedrooms were clean and comfortable, and it wasn’t too noisy if you needed an early night.

    Nice enough hostel. Good location and fun bar right next door. Wasn't the cleanest hostel though, the showers needed to be serviced more frequently as they usually had hair in them (sign said to notify staff when dirty, but no offense - that's not my job). There were no shelves in the showers or near the top bunk beds. The lobby always smelled like cigarette smoke. Staff was super friendly and inviting :)

    Is a very good location for central Sydney. The vibe at the hostel isn’t very lively as they just expect you to go to the bar next door. Majority of people at the hostels are living there so the room I stayed in was an absolute mess with people who have been there months leaving their stuff everywhere. It is very difficult for a solo traveller to integrate into these groups.

    Place was nice But the beds were so damn squeeky that every time anybody moved at all during the night it made a very loud noise that woke me up. After two people checked out one morning the staff came in while 3 people (half the room) were still sleeping probably 6 times in the span of 30 minutes and turned all the lights on every time to see who was checked out (even though you could clearly see with the lights off) and started asking us who we were and talking to each other full volume.

    Disappointing not to have any plug sockets next to the beds, not sure why a decision has been taken to put them inside the lockers, it’s not very useful to have them there... regular mix ups with who’s bed was whose and their needs to be system to ensure this is better managed!

    Multiple information posters had the wrong information when we asked staff they did not want to know. We had a private en-suite room, with a wet room which we understood will get wet but when the whole bathroom is flooded and you need to use the toilet it’s not nice having a massive puddle of dirty water. We got a vibe from the whole hostel that we didn’t feel comfortable in this was vibe was given from the whole hostel, from the staff to the room
