Great place”

Felt comfortable with the staff they make you feel welcome and get to know you. Isaac you are the best! Only thing is our room smelt really bad and the carpets smelt like someone had puked on them and it was never cleaned. The cleaners could do a better job, or maybe spray the rooms and especially with the kitchen! Love the different events they do everyday. Love the location

Cheap, clean, comfortable!”

I stayed in the private room with own toilet. The cleanliness was excellent! everything in my room was clean and sufficient. Location was only ok, because its a little out of town, but only a 3 minute walk to the tram stop! However, its cheap! so it made up a lot for the location. The hostel has a bar with a lot of events throughout the week. Although I did not have a chance to participate, it looks really fun and I would have loved to participate! It made the whole atmosphere super comfortable and fun! The entrance to the hostel is a tiny bit hidden, and I was a little lost maybe due to my jet lag, so do check out good street view or pictures of the front so that you wont miss it!

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 🍺

Fuss free”

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.

Efficient check in and out process, plenty of activities on-site, and great for young people

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.

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.
