    Succinct review here, my only qualm is that the duvets noticeably go unwashed. Apart from this, the Base was a great place to stay.

    Earphones were stolen from my bed so I have given a low security rating. However, overall a good value stay, staff were very friendly.

    Quite basic but enjoyed my stay overall. Rating a bit lower as we had multiple issues with the code on our door.

    Big grimy hostel. In a really good location though. Because there were so many people it would be a place that's hard to keep clean.

    This is a party hostel. If you aren't into partying then avoid, because there's a bar downstairs that they push pretty hard and the Friday we were there most people were drunk. Place is quite dirty, grungy, and out of date. Wifi very limited. Room was really cramped - I'm a small woman and I had to turn sideways to get through to my bed. Decent kitchen, though not big enough for how many ppl. The bathrooms where quite clean though! And 12 to $15 parking. Overall one of worst hostels in 6 months.

    Staff were so moody, one female member of staff didn’t smile at me once for me whole week and didn’t have a smile on her face the whole time, she wasn’t helpful atall and was rude on several occasions. Security was awful, anyone could just walk in and on one occasion one of the girls had a boy from outside her hostel stay in our room. Shower room wasn’t great and needed a good wash. Only good thing was the location near town and city centre

    kitchen was disgusting and rooms smelt funny. My pin didn’t work resulting in me being locked out my room at 6am in my pyjamas.
