Liked: Base backpackers was a great fun place to meet people and had lots of stuff going on every night. It was also in a great location in St Kilda, near the shops, restaurants and the esplanade.The dormitories were similar to most places ive stayed but i thought they were abit over priced here.

20 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel is really good, and you will defintely meet people. The kitchen is a bit small and when we checked in at 2:30pm our room hadn't been cleaned yet which was a bit of a pain. The cleaning staff should be much quicker than that so the rooms are ready for when check in starts. Other than that though it's a good hostel

12 March 2010 Paul would recommend this property

Liked: I've stayed at Habitat, the other main hostel in St Kilda and that was mazing. This is even better. I love the bar and events downstairs, its a fantastic way to meet people. Having ensuite bathrooms is also a major plus. Nice staff and seems really safe and secure. I've just booked for another week and want to stay longer..

Customer review

12 January 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: CleanFresh-looking- However, you don't get anything for free! Not even free tea/coffee. Even if you spend as much money on your room as a hotel room back home!- Internet is not free and it's $15 a day (too much if you have already spent $95 on your double room).- Double room with ensuite was nice and clean (with air conditioning and TV) but had no furniture to put your luggage on. Bathroom very cramped.- Kitchen felt somewhat crowded at mealtimes- Kitchen also has TV area and this is bad (some people veg or sleep there most of the time)

12 January 2010 George would recommend this property

Liked: This place was the best hostel I stayed at by far. The building def needs a good cleaning and possibly a bit of renovation but I suppose that's what happens when you get a bunch of kids on holiday. If I ever travel on the cheap in this area again I will stay here again no question.
