"We stayed in a double with private bathroom, so I can't vouch for the dorms but the room was pretty amazing. A bit small, but super comfy bed, clean, block out curtains, shower was awesome..."

02 June 2009 diana would recommend this property

Liked: They really shouldn't have to charge guests for the use of the lockers downstairs. Those lockers are just sitting there, whether or not they are being used, and the idea of having to pay a $6 rental fee is ludicrous. Also, of all the hostels I've previously stayed in, I've NEVER had to pay to use a computer. A place like Base with so many guests should be able to afford letting their guests use the internet free of charge (considering that this place doesn't even offer a free breakfast).

Disliked: diana left no negative feedback.

Customer review

18 May 2009

Liked: I met some great people here and it is in a really good location; near the harbour. What really let this hostel down was the behavior of the night manager. I checked out on the monday morning and paid to use the storage lockers. When I came back to collect my things that night to go to the airport, the night manager aggressivly demanded my passport and I was forced to pay for another nights accomodation that I had not used. I had simply used the lockers, which I had paid for and returned to collect my things. I am submitting a formal complaint to Base but will NEVER use them again.

Stewart Ross

14 February 2009 Stewart would recommend this property

Liked: The rooms were cleaned daily. Lockers are available under the beds, using your own pad lock. The showers were clean as were the toilets. There was a massive kitchen, although no oven. The laundry facilities were perfect. They organise nights out and have a travel agent based in the hostel. TV room with Cable and plenty of internet computers. The price was reasonable. Only complaint was the wifi had to be paid for, at $15 for 24hrs or $5 for 1 hour i think.
