Great hostel, centrally located Feb 06, 2012
The hostel is located right in the middle of Sydney near public transportation and plenty of restaurants. The hostel itself is huge and has a rooftop pool. The kitchen is massive, there are 6-8 computers available, and a bar. Very friendly staff and great facilities. The private rooms have plenty of space and a comfy bed. I highly recommend staying here.

Busy but Fun Sep 20, 2011
I booked BASE as my first stop in Sydney and it did not disappoint. Backpackers were coming and going all over the place and in just a few hours I met a group of guys to go out with. There is something a little bit commercialized and impersonal about Base, but if you're looking to live the all-out party-all-day life then it can't be beat. There are also numerous job search resources in the travel center which are useful if you're in need of cash to fund your stay. Unfortunately, not much work-for-accomodation is available as they have a steady long-term staff. Also, there is supposedly an alcohol ban in the rooms but that is hardly enforced...

Base is a great place to stay in Sydney. It is centrally located in the city. It's right next to Townhall Station and the Queen Victoria Building and Darling Harbour are only minutes away. The staff are pretty friendly and easy going. It's a great place to meet other backpackers if you're traveling solo. Also, there's a bar right next door and on some nights you get discounts on drinks. I would definitely stay here again.

Yes, I agree that Base is quite a nice hostel. I didn't stay there myself but visited a friend there.
But I also have to say that it is one of the most expensive hostels in Sydney (if not in whole Australia). Back in 2006 one night in a 6-bed-dorm cost AU$ 28, so about 5 to 8 dollars more than the average price for a hostel in Sydney.

Base was a really good hostel. It was clean, I felt comfortable leaving my things without fear of someone taking them, and I loved being just minutes away from the loop and Darling Harbour!
