      Started my journey here and paid for the job search package too. The job package was ok but in hindsight I may have done better my self but was great to get advice and have the ease of doing nothing, plus the benefit of being able to use the advantages of there job search for a year and all over Oz will hopefully come in handy later in the year when regional work is needed.

      It's a shock coming from asia to Oz but it was social when you tried, like all hoatels depends on your room mates. I was lucky and had a great group. Otherwise it's a weird mix of people but they have a good club next door with great trivia and a cracking steak. So can't complain.

      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.

      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.
