06 June 2009 Natalie would recommend this property

Liked: Big Hostel 4 floors with activities organised every night. Fun bar next door. Dorms and facilities are clean and comfy. I would def stay here again and recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the city. Great location close to everything. The only one negative thing is that there is 1 lift which takes for ever to get to your floor. If you don't mind the stairs somethimes this is a cool place to stay.

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).

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.
