    It was clean. Basic. Lots of sinks to wash dishes, with soap! Breakfast included: bread, jam, dry cereal, milk. NO tea/coffee :(

    Rude staff at front desk. Not helpful at all during checkin due to cue. Unwilling to answer questions. 7 digit code to your room, on a keypad that is half broken! It’s hard to open to say the least. Staff has a short code to bypass and open with ease if you ask for help. They will not share the shorter code. RUDE. My least favorite hostel out of the dozen we stayed in. Didn’t book with “base” again.

    Great location in central Queenstown. Cheap hostel with decent dorm rooms.

    The staff are extremely “pushy” when it comes to selling extra activities, not really showing much respect if you don’t respond to this. For example, I wanted to sort out an extension for my stay, when the guy I started talking to pointed behind me (where no one was standing) and said he had another customer to attend to. Two minutes later he returns to the reception with 3 beers in hand. The kitchen is decent but very short on cutlery. Bring your own spoon to breakfast!
