    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.

    I seem to have neglected writing since arriving in Sydney but to be honest it's only because I've been so busy and loved it all so much! Callum picked me up on Monday with Georgie and we headed to have breakfast. I have never felt so full! Pancakes to die for. Then went back to Georgies and did all the usual sorting stuff out before I could check …

    What a great day full of walking! A good 10 miles from the Bondi Junction train station to Bondi Beach south on the Eastern Coastal Walk and back to the train station. The path went through beaches at Tamarama, Bronte, Clovelly, and Coogee. I can't begin to describe how beautiful it all was! Pictures don't come close, either. This is something you …

    A very important lesson was learned today: Visiting the museum during the weekend is the perfect place to find the city's most unruly children. One in particular stuck a nerve with me. In the Aboriginal Art and History Hall were many displays with a large sign in front of each in bold lettering: "DO NOT TOUCH". This little child came running and …

    Another full day of walking! This time at Manly Beach through to Shelly Beach and all around one part of the Sydney Harbor National Park.

    During the ferry ride to Manly, the transit authority surprised passengers with a random ticket check. This is the third one I've had and it's a good way to keep people honest.
