            the location is great! and the room is spacious!

            the pub, scary canary, downstairs makes great noisy which affects the quality of sleep. and the shower rooms should have some shelves for customers putting their washing stuffs on. and the attitude of staffs at the front desk is quite indifferent.

            Excellent location in the center of the city!!

            TV didn't work in an idividual room.It did not get fixed in the two days I stayed there! No telefon in individual rooms. No soap, no shampoo, etc. in individual rooms.

            Perfect location right in city close to Darling Harbour & train station. Room & bathroom were clean and staff were very nice.

          • Single
            5.0

            The Hotel location was good in relation to the city. The room was big and the linen clean.

            The noise level coming from the pub next door into the early hours of the morning made it impossible for sleep. Not everyone staying at this hotel wants to be drunk and party all night, that didnt stop everyone running drunkly down the hall ways at all hours of the night. I think this hotel would benifit from having their service desk manned 24hrs a day. I think their staff need some talking to on how to treat customers, it took 10-15mins just to check in, the man checking me in was also answering the phone to whilst two other female staff members were standing there doing no work but rather discussing how much a cruise was costing. The wait for customer service then grew to about 8 people all waiting in line.

          • Single

            Rooms at the first floor suffer from very loud noise coming from the disco right underneath - very uncomfortable to sleep -

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            The hotel is good for just 1-2 days stay. .

            Facilities e.g provision of small wardrobe/ almirah, chair etc. could make it more customer friendly

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            clean comfortable and very close to city places

            very noisy at night from pub next door

            4.2

            There was constant noise from both other guests and the night club. We had limited broken sleep with noisy guest standing outside our room talking most of the night. I will not be staying at this hotel again

          • Single
            10.0

            The location and that the club is next door

            The price

            5.0

            Service when we complained about the noise was very well- manager took it up very seriously and assigned us to another room. Also location is top.

            We were assigned to one of their most expensive rooms, the double room with bathroom. Unfortunately these rooms were located directly above the adjacent discotheque, with very loud music and bass...untill 3 am in the morning! They told us this was a familiar problem, however they still rent out those rooms... Be sure to ask for this when you book a room!

            The best thing about Base is the location. I was also very glad to be put in a 6 bed dorm for the price of a 10 bed. The staff were friendly and helpful.

            If you're really young and want to party all the time then this is the place for you, but for me it was just all wrong. My room was nice and the people there were all working either at the hostel or had jobs else where and they were all very lovely and helpful. The people staying next door were the loudest people in the hostel and were screaming and shouting at all hours (apart from 8am - midday, when I guess they slept!) The nightclub below was very loud and you can hear everything from the room that I was in. However, if you like partying then this won't bother you as you'll probably be out! The shared bathroom was ok, the shower was nice and warm apart from being very low. Expect to find hair and make up stains every where. I didn't like this place at all and it was very overwhelming for my first stay in Sydney. In the end I booked myself into a hotel for 2 nights, just to get over the horror of this place!
