Recent guest reviews

I chose to stay in a 4-bed room and it was a very nice and quiet experience. Some reviews complained about the noise - none in my case, and it was Sunday. Toilets/showers were clean. Internet was only in the common room and I didn't use it. The only complaint was the kitchen, not that many appliances (like, no kettles), just two mugs in the whole kitchen etc. I had only one night, and thanks to the great location had time to walk around the area.

I'm not used to the hustle and bustle of a large city but after learning the ropes, BASE is amazing! I felt comfortable in the mixed 6 bedroom dorms. All dorm mates were respectful and courtesy. The location was amazing and all the sites, buses, food were only 5-15 min walks. I will stay here again :)

I stayed at base while visiting Sydney with a friend. We stayed in a double room. Location gave us the chance to walk around Sydney and sightse. Overal happy with our stay.

Wonderful hostel, with a special area only for ladies, courtesy wine every night! Clean and very good located. Just a couple of days the elevator was not working, but comparing with the great service, it worth the money!

This hostel has a special area just for women, The Santuary with a glass of wine every day and some toileteries. I will stay again.

The Base hostel is great for what it is. I stayed with a friend in a private room which had a queen bed with a twin above it. It was perfect for the few days we were in Sydney. Everything was clean. The elevator is very old and slow but it wasn't too bad taking the stairs. Overall I enjoyed my stay and would do it again,

Exactly what I was expecting from a backpacker/hostel hotel. The place was clean. the staff was friendly and the business center/travel office was a great benefit. Great location for shopping and access to all the retail on the water. The bar/restaraunt next door can be a lot of fun or can be a bit loud if trying to get an early start on shut-eye.
