    Close to bus stops/train and beach. If you don't like partying then probably stay away, but than again why are you in Australia if you don't wanna party. Had a hell of a time

    Better for young party travellers”

    I really like Base. It’s lively and had a great social atmosphere when I arrived. But it’s party central on a Thurs night. I’m a heavy sleeper and even I had to wear ear plugs to get to sleep. If you’re young and live a social place. This is for you. But if your looking for quiet calmer hostel it’s not the right place for you.

    Pros - Great location, friendly staff, free simple breakfast with pancakes and toast, attached bathroom in the dorm Cons - People usually party till late and it tends to be very noisy and difficult to sleep at night. It might be great for those love to party alot as they have a pub that have different party theme every night with discounted 🍺

    Good price, central to everywhere, not squeaky clean but very decent considering its a dorm. Couldn't have asked for much more. The lounge and bar area is where all the night party people come out to play and hang out. You will enjoy it if you're one of them. If not, they just party amongst their friends anyway. Kitchen and tv/lounge area isn't the biggest compared to other hostels. But it's still okay if you not a michelin chef or something.

    I was only here for a few hours. After spending some time checking out St. Kilda, particularly the beach, I needed a place to shower before I board my flight home. This backpacker is easy to find, and you can get to it by tram (no. 96) from Bourke or Spencer St.
