Base Backpackers Melbourne Hostel

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I really enjoyed staying at the Base. The reason is it was very reasonably priced! I only wanted to stay in my room for a few hours as I was going out on the town, so didn't want to pay a lot of money for my stay, so this suited well! Easy to get to via the St Kilda Tram! Room was basic but very clean, neat and comfortable! Staff were lovely!

I checked our after 1 night of my 3 night stay. The noise was constant all Night throughout the hostel, there were no assigned beds, very poor storage facilities, bathroom was in the dorm room. One of the worst hostels I've stayed in.
