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.
