Base Brisbane Central Reviews
Average May 11, 2011
This hostel is OK but if like me your staying here for a while whilst loOKing for a job and a home then it's maybe not so good.
But loOKing at it when I stopped here the first tome when i was purely travelling i wasn't over impressed then by it.
The staff were OK but not very 'with it' or too helpful. I found them to be quite hard work sometimes and soooo slow at the desk! You could be stood there for some time before they get around to you.
The kitchen isn't that great. For the amount of people staying in the hostel its a lousy size and there's never ever any clean utensils.
The cleanliness is questionable too.
The downunder bar downstairs is not bad. If you like cheese and not too bothered about lots of drunks then its good. I wasn't over fussed but I liked the cheap drinks and had a couple good nights here so all good.
This place is just average, not good not bad.
Best thing about it is the location, right opposite Central station.
