Karol Gajda

05 November 2009

Liked: The only thing I liked was the free airport pickup with 3 night stay. Otherwise, Base was not worth it at all. Air Conditioning in the room was freezing. Each time I asked the front desk to turn it up (warmer) they said OK. And proceeded to ignore it. Every night for 3 nights. There was NO power outlet in my room. How are backpackers supposed to charge their cameras and other stuff? Magic? The bathroom was dirty. Constantly. I don't feel like wasting my time writing more...don't stay at Base.

06 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: i loved base. it was central to everywhere, darling harbour 5 mins away, sydney harbour 10 minutes. right next to the train station so easy to get around, and also just a short taxi ride to kings cross, think the taxi cost around $6. the scary canary bar is lots of fun, gets really busy i met loads of people there, and the entertaiment is a lot of fun, no critisism at all for this place, would recommend
