      We stayed at BASE two nights. It was a great launching off pad for our trip to New Zealand. Very close to the EIP offices. Since we are old married fuddle duddies, we payed a little extra to get our own room. The room was basic, bed, mirror and a small fridge, but everything we needed it to be. The bathrooms were clean, and the lounge area and staff were great. The location, right on Queens Street was good for exploring the CBD. Nothing fancy, just the basics, which is all we were looking for.

      would be 4 out of five. but deducted a star, because the lady at the reception forgot to tell us that the prises would double if we didn't book now, because it was an "event night". So we looked at 110$ per night instead of 56...

      After a loooooong flight it was nice to have a bed. The room and ensuite were clean. There was tea and coffee facilities. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was easy to find.

      the place is great, the staff is very helpful and easy going. The place is always full of people, so even though its not the cheapest in town, its worth the extra buck for the ambiance. The beds and toilets are good and clean, and with the Globe bar downstairs and all the fast food and supermarkets around you can stay there without moving more than 200meters and have a great time.

      Whilst the hostel has all the amenties that you could possibly want, they have a major problem with theft.

      I personally got $200 stolen whilst I was staying in a private room, and a guy that I met was also robbed but he lost $1000 during a fire alarm.

      I personally would never stay here again

      Plein centre ville, un bâtiment moderne de 7 étages, excellent emplacement. Par contre le reste laisse un peu à désirer. Chambre surchauffée, réception au 3ème étage. Quand on arrive de la rue l'accès n'est pas évident. Mais la qualité est largement satisfaisante pour le prix.

We were even treated to a meal on a plane that you could describe as something other than ‘edible’. The plane finally landed in the evening and we …
