    Superb

    The staff were friendly and helpful.The hotel's location is close to Darling Harbour and reasonably close to the Sydney Entertainment Centre

    A glass/cup for water near the bed would have been good.

    Only for the cheap cost. The back packers is very noisy and the young people drink a lot. not enough respect for those who sleep

    Very good

    As we wanted to be in the heart of Sydney we chose a casual place where we could still feel young again!! I have travelled back packing accomodation with YHA when I was younger and always loved the feel of these places so wanted my hubby to experience it. Liked the fact that we could just walk out the door and we were in proximity to everything but for the cost we paid for the room I would rather have booked a hotel room afor a little extra.

    Our room was very bright due to the lighting in the street outside and we didnt have very good night sleeps. The thumping noise through the walls from the nightclub next door was difficult to adjust to when you are in bed trying to sleep, particularly after midnight.

    The location is very convenient, the room is clean & we actually joined a free tour (with food & beer) to Bondi beach organised by Base~

    Fabulous

    Location and prices

    There were a couple of drunk young boys who disturbed me greatly. And the security acted too softly to them, actually not punishing them for vomitting on the floor in the room.

    Exceptional

    If you want to meet new people from everywhere that want to have fun jus like you, this is the place. Not to mention lots of clubs near by, one which is next door. Not far from darling harbor for shopping, or george street, paddys market, circular key....its jus pretty close to everything. If you are gunna stay around christmas time book ahead, because it fills up quick, and u could be left homeless!!! The showers are good, and I liked the beds. But its always about the people party and location!!!

    If I have to say I didnt like something is that the carpets only get vacumed not washed, but hey its a cheap and fun hostel, still worth your trip!

    The location is very strategic as it is in the city. I, as a backpackers, did choose the right hostel like Base Sydney. I can go everywhere (e.g. Sydney Entertainment Center, Sydney Aquarium and Sydney Opera House) around city without using public transportation. The security in the Base Sydney is guaranteed as using the card key, so outsider can not enter to our room. I can tell many of my friend that the Base Sydney is the best backpacker hotel to live. Thank you Base Sydney.

    The man toilet can be entered by women. How comes ?

    Excellent location for proximity to Cockle Bay area. Our double room with ensuite was clean and for a Saturday night not too noisy....so we are a satisfied couple with no complaints.

    When we check in on our booking date. The person told me that someone called them and cancelled my booking!!!!! Now they donnot have room available!!!Ridiculous !!! We never called you! And my account in booking obviously shows my booking is still active!!! If someone really cancelled my booking, why not inform booking!!! At least send us a email!!!! It is a basic!!! I have travelled to so many places and booked so many hotels, this never happened!!! Hoping no one will meet this kind of thing in the future!!!! Please do not come to this place if you want a peaceful travel!!!
