Clean, comfortable bed & great location

Clean, comfortable bed & great location
We're a couple in our late 30's who are sick of paying $250+ p/n in a hotel and being extremely disappointed. My thought process was, I’d rather pay $88 and be disappointed then $250+ for the same disappointed feeling however I was wrong. We were pleasantly surprised by our double room. We were only in Sydney for one night and knew we wouldn’t be spending much time in our room. The room was small but clean which was all we needed, our shared bathroom was also really clean. We choose The Base purely for location as we needed to be close to Town Hall train station for an early departure. I would recommend a short stay definitely if your intention is to use the room for sleeping.

Very basic

Location, staff and the shower head in the shower.
Our stay was ok. Bed was comfortable but the pillows were absolutely horrible. Too soft. You could tell they were cheap. There was no mirror in the bedroom or hanging space. It doesn't matter that this was for backpackers at least in the room with a double there should be somewhere to hang your clothes to straighten them out. There was only one battery in the remote. Thank god for husband who had an app on his phone to turn in on. The electronic key kept me out of the toilet and bathroom. The bathroom floor was always wet. No one would clean up after themselves and the shower leaked on the outside which would make it slippery for people getting out. The staff were amazing. I give them 10/10 for their customer service and happy vibe.

Good Location

The only downside was the dirty stairwell - but that's because I'm too impatient to wait for the slow elevator.

It was terrible: the walls were shaking and you only heard boom, boom, boom until 3am so you basically pay for a chance not to get any sleep if your room is on the first two floors. The room was really damp and a bit dirty also. Not worth the money!
