Good but loud”
The hostel is in a great location 2 minutes stroll to the lake and and the i-site. The room we had was a double with an en-suite which had plenty of room for us. The issues we had were with the loud noise coming from the surrounding bars. Even with earplugs we struggled to sleep on the Friday and Saturday nights until the very early hours of the morning. They do provide you with earplugs, but they dont do much. The bed was also not very comfortable, the springs dug into me! Another problem was they charge $2 per tiny sachet of washing powder in addition to $4 wash and $4 dryer. They also charge $4 per day for Wi-Fi which is a bit cheeky considering that's a necessity for most people. Sadly the Base chain seems a bit money grabbing. But overall, good convenient location and decent room.

Good location but a bit noisy! ”
This hostel is in the city centre which is convenient. We lived in a double room and the room was quite clean, but not too large. It was quite noisy because the bar was downstairs. Also, we heard the sounds from the corridor clearly, which influenced our sleep. Some of the staff looked unhelpful too.

Location is best”
Agoda messed up our booking by booking us but when we got there it was fully booked. Staff was nice enough to give us a 3 person room. Since we originally booked a private queen room, he blocked our dorm room so nobody else can join us. Gave us free drinks too! Heater is a bummer since it shuts itself down after 30mins. You have to manually turn it back on to keep warm during winter. A bit of improvement on cleaning maybe.. found a wrapper of chips on the bedside. No elevator to the 3rd floor. Only up to the 1st floor. Bar across the hostel has loud bands playing and can be heard from the room. Not a biggie though. Slept our way through. I'd stay here again. Location is the best. Restaurants and lake just behind the hostel.

Base Taupo ”
The staff were helpful and friendly, the location was good, can't think of a third
The accommodation was pretty beat up, unlike other hostels I've stayed in there was no free WiFi at all.The location although central has the disadvantage of noisy bars directly opposite. The best part of the stay here was definitely the friendly and helpful staff. Don't book if you need a good night's sleep, do book if you just want to get drunk in the Irish pub then roll across the road to your pit!

Stay at Base Taupo only if you are a party animal”
It was a unpleasant stay so I can't comment.
There is a stretch of pubs/bars just opposite the hotel. We were there on Friday and Saturday nights. They blasted the music until 3+ in the morning! The hotel provided ear-plugs but that hardly helped!It was really bad. Couldn't sleep for 2 nights consecutively. We asked the staff to change our room but he gave the excuse that other people have specifically requested for the room at the other end of the hotel. Since when do people choose specific rooms (types of room yes, but not room number per se?) Think it was the inconvenience of cleaning the room again if we shifted.
