Plan to Party”

This was an amazing fun hostel to stay at while you're in Sydney if you're looking to meet people and have a good time. They are right next to a good bar so you get discounts and its always something to do at night. They are also in a good location for the metro and not far away from the ferries. I would definitely recommend this hostel if you are looking to stay in CBD Sydney.

Heaven for backpackers but disliked the TIPI app”

I was backpacking in Sydney and this hostel seemed the best option. If you are okay with sharing a room with 5-9 other people and you are social & like hanging out with other travelers, this is your place. Staff is helpful. And they try to keep the place as clean as possible. One thing I did not like was they (receptionist) asked me to download an app called TIPI and they said I would need it to open the room door etc... however, in the reality when you download an app you have to accept many terms and basically you voluntarily agree to share your private information and data with a 3rd party. So just ask for the key card instead of the app.

Hi Petra, Thanks for your review, we appreciate your feedback. We're happy you enjoyed your overall stay with us. We use the Tipi app because it's quick and easy for everyone. It's a smart key but it is not forced upon our guests, you could always use the code provided in the email. The app is owned and used only by Base hostels so personal information is will not be shared with anyone. We hope to see you again in the future. Cheers, The Base Team

All Round Excellent”

The staff is very friendly. I stayed in their female dorm which is located on the 4th floor which is great because you are high enough to not hear the clubbing going on at The Scary Canary next door. The bathrooms are very clean. They also have breakfast at the Scary Canary next door which is very affordable. The location is great as Town Hall station is across the street and you're a few blocks away from all the Sydney attractions. Can't fault it. I will be back again if I happen to travel through Sydney.

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.

Best location, value for money”

As a solo traveler, I stayed in the female dorm which is at 4th floor, separate from normal rooms. It was quiet, not like other reviews that were annoyed by the music. There’re mirrors, bean bag, sofa and lockers in the room. The kitchen is big, plenty of storage space and seats. There’s only one shower and toilet per floor but I never needed to wait. Wifi only available at lobby and kitchen, a bit slow but good to have. Overall it’s a pleasant stay as it’s my first experience with hostel. If you are looking for value for money hostel, this is the right place to go.

Exceptional”

It's been many years since I had stayed in a back-packers, and I was by far the oldest person staying there, but staff were welcoming all the same, and the occupants soon stopped staring at me! The location of Base was great - only a few minutes walk to Darling Harbour, or to Town Hall station, and actually Circular Quay and the bridge were walkable - about 30 mins max. So couldn't have been more central, especially for what I paid! I booked a private double room, would have preferred one with en suite but they were already booked. However, the toilet and shower were straight across the corridor and always clean, and by chance, never occupied when I needed them. The room was bright and clean, with a very comfortable double bed and TV. I didn't actually cook for myself but used the kitchen to make cups of tea, etc, and the facilities looked really good. Plenty of fridge and food storage space. I could happily have stayed there longer and would definitely stay there again!

An on-budget place to stay”

Friendly staff, easy access to public transport, centrally located

It was a great experience staying at Base Sydney Backpacker. The staff are informative, friendly and helpful. There is one thing that I found need improvement is, the WiFi (paid) is very slow and I find it quite unacceptable. They should have made sure they have enough bandwidth and not to over-sell it, causing network congestion.

Not fantastic hotel”

location.

The staff were quite hostile to me (I'm a chinese) when i was queuing to check-in. They were warm to the one who is a Caucasian standing infront of me. When its my turn, immediately, their attitude changed. This is obviously a hostel managed by a group of young racist people. I am extremely disappointed and upset with the staff of Base Sydney Hostel and will surely advise my friends or people of my "skin colour" to avoid this hostel at all cost, despite the good location.

At the center of the city”

Pros-centrally located; town hall stn is just across the street; very near Queen Victoria Bldg., Westfield, Sydney Tower, Hyde Park; has direct train to domestic and international airport; if you love to party, it's connected to a pub called "The Scary Canary" Cons- since it's connected to a pub, it's quite loud at night, rooms need bigger lockers for luggage.

Hi Marianne, Thanks for your valuable feedback, we really appreciate it. We understand our onsite bar can be a little noisy at night which is why we provide free earplugs at reception. Hopefully we'll see you again sometime! Cheers, The Base Team

Sydney Stay”

The hostel location was very accessible to trains going to the airport. Was just frustrating because we need to use the stairs because the only elevator was not functioning. Though in Kent street it's very near Chinatown and walking distance to some tourists attractions in Sydney.

Hi Dale, Thanks for your feedback. It's good to know you enjoyed our central location. We're sorry for any inconveniences caused by the lift. We understand it is an old one and it takes a lot of time but with a little love, it'll take you to the right floor. We hope to see you again in the future! Cheers, The Base Team
