Stayed here with a few friends travelling down the east coast. Bar was AMAZING! Had events on every night, including a Eurovision party on a sunday night. The reception and bar staff were super helpful.

ended up staying here after a friend told me about it in Sydney. Right in the heart of St Kilda with something always going on in the bar and free walking tours offered at reception.

Came with the idea of only staying a week but 2 weeks later I'm still here. Amazing, friendly and helpfully staff. If you're traveling alone, I would suggest a free nights here first. You get to meet a lot of new people. plus there's a hostel activities you will never get bored, and of course there's a kitchen.

Beautiful area of the city, good staff, a lot of services in the hostel and night activities. Good if you travel alone. Kitchen a bit dirty. Good transports to city centre as well. I would recommend it

I expected to stay at Base for two days, but now I've stayed for over two weeks. Amazing people and great staff, always something going on at night here. Highly recommend a stay! I've made memories to last me a lifetime, and I'm sure there are many more to come.

The staff were friendly, and bingo was awesome. Place was clean and comfortable . The best part was how accommodating the staff were with every request. If circumstances permitted I would have stayed indefinitely
