      Schönes Hostel. Kann man sich auf keinen Fall beschweren. Alles ziemlich sauber und organisiert. Es gibt einen Job-Desk und Travel-Desk, wo man immer Hilfe bekom men kann - außer am Wochenende!
      Du bekommst ein 6 bis 10er Zimmer und bist aber gut untergebracht. Jeder lebt seinen eigenen Alltag. Alle Leute sind sehr freundlich und man kommt hier super schnel in Kontakt mit anderen. WiFi ist super das einzig negative ist der Preis, der bei 35$ die Nacht liegt, aber das ist Sydney - very EXPENSIVE!!!

      The rooms are great, the kitchen and laundry-facilities fully equipped. Bathrooms are pretty clean, lobby is rather comfy. Computers available.
      However, all the extras, such as laundry or internet, lockers or even luggage storage are really spendy. Staff is friendly and helpful.

      This hostel was ok but it is a party hostel so if you want some peace and quiet whilst in Sydney, go elsewhere.

      The hostel is in a perfect location, really central. It's a fine hostel but the kitchen is a bit dated and some of the appliances could be thrown out but its ok. It's quite a big hostel. There is lots of activities on to meet people and next door is scary canary. It generally needs a bit of an update even in the bathrooms but it all works fine.

      The hostel we stayed in for the duration of the Oz intro. It was surprisingly clean. It had nice beds, great central location so just what we needed. Great place to meet people as well. Everyone's in the same boat and everyone's just up for a laugh.

      Clean accommodation with comfortable beds and friendly staff, perfect for first visit as the location is very central to everything i.e Botanic Gardens, Opera House, Darling Harbour, Library, Travel Agents, Train station, Restaurants, Bars & Shops! Also a cheap supermarket 'Woolworths!'- just up the road.

      Base Hostel also offers different free activities everyday.

      The only negative point is if you need sleep or are a light sleeper sharing a 6 bed dorm and being right next to their local bar/club Scary Canary can be distracting.

      Would stay there again if in Sydney.

      Sydney (28/09)

      You can’t go to Sydney and not go to Bondi Beach, so this is where we spent our day. The sun was out and the beach was pretty packed, but there was a fairly cold wind which annoyingly blew the sand into our faces every now and then. Because it was a beach day, there isn’t much else to add to this.

      We saw a platypus! Smaller than we imagined them to be, but super cool. We’d like to say we saw them in the wild but today we went to the Sealife Centre. This meant that we also got to see Seahorses, Sharks, Rays, plus lots of other marine life ranging from the beautiful to the down-right ugly.
