Liked: The staff is amazing.

Disliked: It isn't the problem of the hostel. Just the atmosphere there, as everyone is looking for a job is a bit frustrating.

Liked: It's a big and extremely well and professionally run hostel with a huge kitchen and a huge lounge. It seemed to be full of young party-oriented backpackers. I wouldn't recommend the hostel for older travelers looking for a silent place.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: I stayed in 2 different double rooms there. The first seemed somewhat dirty, and the carpet reeked of smoke. The second, which was the same price, was very clean, and very nice. Luck of the draw really. The location is excellent, and it's a great place to meet people if you're traveling solo. There is a bar on property, and in addition to good drink specials to people booked into Base, there were activities offered to get to know people.

Disliked: One of the rooms I stayed in reeked of cigarette smoke. 2 of the 3 elevators didn't work.

Liked: The location is excellent and the facilities are all pretty good.

Disliked: The bathrooms are a pretty long walk away and you need to get a lift to access the main part of the building but that's all minor.

Liked: Got upgraded from 8 dorm to double room! The location is real good, as central as you could get.

Disliked: The kitchen is not very functional. Couldnt find knives, cutting boards or can opener. No oven. Globe Bar downstairs gets pretty loud, and there is a party every night, so if you are working or anything it is gonna be a problem.

Liked: I liked that it was very central, the services for people who look for work or bus travelling and other activities for tourists, the TV lounge, the internet service and the laundry room.

Disliked: I hated the showers (seriouslly I got really mad when i saw them), I hated the kitchen utensiles. I didnt like that everything was so separated, instead of a cozy home feeling. I had to use the drying machines about 4 times because my jeans and socks wouldnt get dry. Its a very busy place and can get noisy at night. I've been in better hostels, much better.
