Location is great, inexpensive and feeling international of its dense customers”

The price is very affordable for a private room in expensive city queenstown, location is perfect, you can find many budgeters coming from diverse countries. The kitchen contains too many people, the elevator stinks badly, but our private bathroom is perfectly large, and the room is not clean, the bed side has stain. If you love crowd and are on budget, this hotel is perfect.

Good for both short&long term”

I’v been living in the Base more than a month so far. Because I work for the gifts shop just across street, that’s super convenient for me and also good location for all the places you want to go with such a cheapest price in Queenstown! Free breakfast from 8-9am, and the kitchen will close for cleaning from 10pm that is the only things annoying but I can totally understand.

Amazing staffs and ideal location”

Friendly staff, clean room, kitchen a bit messy sometimes but always got staff clean the kitchen every now and then. Wifi is slow during certain peak hours. Overall, Base Queenstown is better than Base Auckland, there is free breakfast, smaller kitchen but clean and tidy. Clean bed compare to Base Auckland too.

Value for money”

Great location, cheap and well equipped facilities

It was definitely a value for money deal. We only needed to pay the standard room rate (which is usually has no ensuite bathroom) and we had an ensuite bathroom as well as breakfast (although quite minimal but it is a backpackers so that is to be expected). The only downside was that it was a windowless room. But that was mentioned when we booked the room so it was alright. Great location too, located right on the main street of Queenstown with easy access to most places. Facilities were also well equipped and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely return again.

Great vibe and excellent location”

The staff can make you feel excited on why you are in Queenstown. The bed was good but there's not enough plugs in the room for charging our devices. But we still enjoyed our stay and had a great time here!
